Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease a jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet with four sides.
  2. Line with waxed paper, then grease and flour the wax paper.
  3. Sift 3/4 cup flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and nutmeg onto some waxed paper.
  4. Beat eggs and sugar until thick.
  5. Add dry ingredients and stir in canned pumpkin.
  6. Pour into pan and and spread to all edges.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until middle springs back when touched.
  8. Invert onto a damp towel that has been sprinkled with powder sugar.
  9. (I use a flour sack type towel, it works best) Carefully remove Waxed paper.
  10. Trim the edges off, then roll up in the towel and place on a rack to cool.
  11. Mix softened cream cheese, Powdered sugar, butter or margarine
  12. ,vanilla, pecans and *Golden Rasins (*Optional)
  13. When cake is cool carefully unroll and spread filling almost all the way to the edge.
  14. Using your towel to help, roll the roll back up, (it will be moist so as I'm rolling I sprinkle with more powder sugar, this will keep it from sticking to your fingers).
  15. Once rolled up, wrap in plastic wrap and refridgerate.
  16. When ready to serve remove wrap and slice and serve with a sprinkle of Powdered Sugar.
  17. Great for the holidays.
