Pumpkin Roll

This is one of my favorite fall desserts. It is quick and easy to prepare, freezes beautifully and is loved by almost everyone!
Pumpkin Roll
3 eggs
1 C. sugar
2/3 C. pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)
3/4 C. flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
4 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 1/2 sheet cake pan or jelly roll pan. 
Cream eggs and sugar in bowl.  Add pumpkin.
In separate bowl combine dry ingredients.  Slowly add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture.
Spread batter in prepared pan.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
Prepare a tea towel or piece of smooth fabric by covering it liberally with powdered sugar.

When cake is baked, Carefully flip the cake out onto the towel.  I find the best way to do this is to be sure the cake is loosed from the edges of the pan, set it almost upright on a long edge and very quickly flip the pan onto the towel.  Lift one edge of the pan to be sure cake has released from pan.  Use a spatula to ease the cake out, if it is stuck.
My cake stuck a little, but it's ok!
Starting on a long edge, roll the towel and cake up into a log.  Cool completely.
To make filling beat butter and cream cheese together.  Carefully add the powdered sugar and vanilla. 

When cake is cool, unroll cake and spread with filling.

Carefully re-roll the cake, using the towel to help you get it started.  Sprinkle the top with a little more powdered sugar, if desired and serve.

~I like to freeze the individual slices on a cookie sheet and then keep in an airtight container for last minute company.  Remove from the freezer and it is thawed and ready to eat by the time the coffee is brewed!

~I usually make 3 or 4 of these and keep them in the freezer. They make great hostess gifts!  And we have even been known to indulge occasionally for breakfast.

Ok, confused and I have never made a log roll. I just want to be clear you roll the cake before you put the cream frosting in? I am thinking of making this for my husbands office.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?

Everything published was actually very reasonable. However,
what about this? suppose you were to write a awesome title?
I ain't suggesting your content is not good., however suppose you added a post title that grabbed people's
attention? I mean "Pumpkin Roll" is kinda plain.
You should look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news titles to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've got to say.

In my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's
simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a superb job with
this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me
on Safari. Superb Blog!
