What Is an Easy Recipe for Pumpkin Roll?

Trisha Yearwood's pumpkin roll recipe is easy to make. With only 15 minutes of preparation time and 15 minutes of cooking time, it is a simple way to create a tasty treat.

Use an electric mixer to beat 3 large eggs, 1 cup of granulated sugar, 2/3 cup of canned pumpkin and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Blend the mixture until it is smooth. Sift together 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the egg mixture, and blend until thoroughly mixed.

Spread the batter into a 17 1/2 inch-by-12 1/2 inch jelly roll pan that has been greased and lightly floured. Sprinkle the dough with chopped pecans, and bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 14 minutes or until a cake tester stuck in the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and let it cool for about five minutes.

Invert the cake on a wire rack, and sprinkle a tea towel with confectioners sugar. Gently transfer the cake to the towel, roll it up, and refrigerate for about 45 minutes.

Beat 1 cup of confectioners sugar, 2 3-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened, 1 stick of butter, softened and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until smooth. Unroll the cake, spread the filling over it, and re-roll. Dust with confectioners sugar before serving.
