Wow it's Thanksgiving already...
Here's a family favorite recipe that's been made every Thanksgiving since I can remember - possibly since I was born. My mom found the recipe in a magazine, and now you can find it in many places, but it is relatively simple and always delicious!
Pumpkin Cake Roll
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a jellyroll pan; line with wax paper. Grease the wax paper.
Beat 3 eggs for 5 minutes on medium high speed.
Gradually add 1 c. granulated sugar. Stir in 2/3c. pumpkin and 1 tsp lemon juice.
In a small bowl, stir together 3/4 c. flour, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp nutmeg.
Fold into pumpkin mix.
Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
While the cake is baking, spread out a clean dish towel and coat with powdered sugar.
Isn't it pretty?
When cake comes out, immediately invert onto the prepared towel.
Carefully peel the wax paper off.
Roll cake, along with towel, into a nice snug roll.
Cool cake completely.
Beat 1 c. powdered sugar, 1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, 1/4 c. butter and 1/2 tsp vanilla until smooth.
