Curly's Pumpkin Roll
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. pumpkin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 c. flour
Grease & flour 15-10-1 pan. (I line mine with waxed paper. I grease the pan before, put the waxed paper in and then grease the waxed paper)
Beat eggs inlarge bowl on high until thick. Add sugar, beat 5 minutes. (Beating the eggs for 5 minutes is the secret) Stir in pumpkin.
Spread in pan. (Can sprinkle with 1 cup pecans if desired. Gently press into batter.) Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Sift 1-2 Tbsp. powdered sugar on kitchen towel. Whe the cake is done, loosen from sides and invert onto towel while still hot from oven. Roll cake up, let cool. (Roll the towel up into the cake)
8 oz Cream cheese
2 Tbsp. soft butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. powdered sugar
Beat cream sheese & butter in large bowl on high. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until blended. Unroll cake. Spread with cream cheese, then reroll. Slices well with serrated knife.
(Refrigerate or freeze) It freezes well.
The local restaurant sells a whole pumpkin roll for $24. Just think how much money you are saving.
