3 eggs 1 cup white sugar 2/3 cup solid pack pumpkin puree 1 teaspoon lemon juice 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 cup chopped pecans confectioners' sugar for dusting 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese 4 tablespoons butter 1 cup confectioners' sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract confectioners' sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on high speed for five minutes. Gradually mix in pumpkin and lemon juice. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger; stir into the pumpkin mixture. Spread batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle pecans over the top of the batter.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the center springs back when touched. Loosen edges with a knife. Turn out on two dishtowels that have been dusted with confectioners' sugar. Roll up cake using towels, and let cool for about 20 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, 1 cup confectioners' sugar, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Unroll pumpkin cake when cool, spread with filling, and roll up. Place pumpkin roll on a long sheet of waxed paper, and dust with confectioners' sugar. Wrap cake in waxed paper, and twist ends of waxed paper like a candy wrapper. Refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled; before slicing, dust with additional confectioners' sugar.
This just so very good, a must for your Christmas baking, and instead of dusting it with confectioner sugar, you can also dust it with cinnamon, both make an excellent pumpkin roll, and you can wrap in foil, then wrap in Christmas paper and give as a gift, now any one loves a gift like this.. Enjoy, experiment with food, have fun, and enjoy the season of giving, loving, and eating.
