Pumpkin Roll

GREENVILLE — The Herald-Banner's Cheri Baker shares her favorite holiday recipe, a pumpkin roll.

3 Eggs                            

2/3 cup of Pumpkin (canned)        

1 cup of Sugar                    

¾ cups of Flour                    

½ teaspoon of Salt                

½ teaspoon of Nutmeg

2 teaspoons of Cinnamon

1 teaspoon of Lemon Juice

1 teaspoon of Ginger

1 teaspoon of Baking Powder

Beat the eggs for five minutes on high.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread the batter to cover.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

Once cooked, flip carefully onto a powdered sugar coated tea towel.

Fold the four sides of the tea towel onto the cake and roll like a jelly roll and place in the freezer.

Filling – Beat the following ingredients until creamy:

1 - 8 oz. package of Cream Cheese softened

5 tablespoons of Butter

1 cup of Powdered Sugar

1 teaspoon of Vanilla

Remove cake from freezer, unroll carefully.  Spread cream cheese filling and sprinkle with ½ cup of chopped pecans.  Re-roll without tea towel and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Roll tightly in heavy duty aluminum foil and free until ready to serve.
