Spiced Pumpkin Cake Roll

Ingredients for the cake:
  • 3/4 c unbleached flour
  • 1/2 ts baking powder
  • 1/2 ts baking soda
  • 1 1/2 ts pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 ts fine salt
  • 3 room temperature eggs
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • 2 ts pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 c pumpkin puree
Ingredients for the filling:
  • 8 oz room temperature cream cheese
  • 4 oz room temperature butter
  • 1 tb heavy cream
  • 1 ts pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ts pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 ts salt
  • Powdered sugar (to taste)

Make The Cake:

Preheat oven at 350 deg F. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin spice and salt.

Crack eggs into a large mixing bowl. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and pumpkin puree into mixing bowl. Mix well.

Begin adding sifted flour combo a little at a time. Continue mixing just to combine.

On a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper, pour cake batter and flatten it over with a spatula.

Bake in oven for 12-14 minutes.

Make The Filling:

While cake is in oven, add cream cheese, butter, heavy cream and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle pumpkin spice, salt and powdered sugar.

Blend the filling mix with spatula. It should be fluffy texture.

Putting It All Together:

Remove cake from oven. Lift the cake with parchment paper attached out of the cooking sheet and onto a flat surface. Be careful, it's hot.

With the parchment paper still attached, roll cake over to "train" it into a rolled configuration. Leave rolled for about a minute, then unroll.

Carefully remove parchment paper. Lay out the cake unrolled on a flat surface.

Spread the filling on top. Leave 3/4 inches margin because filling will squeeze out when rolled up.

Roll the cake carefully. When placing on a serving plate, put the seam down.

Sprinkle powdered sugar. Cut and serve.
