I took lots of pictures while I was making it so lets get started.
Making this recipe was easy and didn't take long at all. First we're going to mix up the batter, when you start the recipe you have to mix the dry ingredients together then mix the wet. When you start mixing the wet ingredients you start with the sugar and the eggs. It's very important that when you beat the sugar and eggs together that you beat them till the sugar is dissolved and the mixture becomes thick and a very pale yellow. Like this.
This will take a couple of minutes to do but please make sure that you beat it till it's thick and pale yellow. Then you can add the the rest of your wet ingredients and add the dry. Grease your jelly roll pan and line it with wax paper, then grease and flour the waxed paper.
I left the waxed paper a little longer on the ends of the pan so I could use them to lift my pumpkin roll out of the pan. Pour the batter into the pan and level it out, then bake it for the recommended time. While it's baking get a thin cotton kitchen towel and dust it with powdered sugar, making sure you use enough sugar so that the pumpkin roll doesn't stick to the towel. I used 1/4 cup and it worked very well.
Here's a picture of the batter baked in the jelly roll pan.
At this point we take it out of the pan, I had to use a knife and run it along the edge of the pan to loosen it up on one side, then I lifted it out of the pan and flipped it over onto the sugared towel and very carefully peeled the waxed paper off.
So far so good! Now we're going to start rolling up the cake into the sugared towel, start with the short end and very carefully start to roll.
When your done rolling it up into the towel it looks like this.
Let this cool completely on a wire rack. After its cooled slowly unroll it, it's time to spread the cream cheese on it.
Slather the cream cheese mixture on it, now you will roll it back up.
Take this roll, put plastic wrap on it and refrigerate it for 1 hour, it was a very long hour for me , I couldn't wait to taste it! At last we have Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese filling!
It's so moist and good and the cream cheese filling just makes it that much better! I know I'll be making this alot before , during and after the holidays. I hope you do too.
