This is the recipe that Tyler’s cousin Heather uses to make a pumpkin roll every Thanksgiving. Tyler LOVES this pumpkin roll and always eats a lot of it.
Make cake: Preheat oven to 350. Beat together eggs and 1 cup sugar until thick and fluffy. Add pumpkin, stir in dry ingredients. Spread mixture over a greased jelly roll pan. If desired, sprinkle with chopped nuts Bake for 15 minutes. After baking, flip pan over onto a sheet of wax paper sprinkled with powdered sugar. Roll up in paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Make filling: While cake is cooling, prepare filling. Beat together 1/2 cup granulated sugar, cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and 1 cup powdered sugar. Beat until smooth.
Once cooled, unroll cake and spread filling over the cake. Roll up like a jelly roll. Wrap in foil and refrigerate.
