Pumpkin Roll

Sometimes a picture can say even more than a thousand words, and that is the case with the photo on the Kat’s Kitchen’s website of this pumpkin roll. One glance will convince you to make this pretty roll tonight (or this afternoon, so you can have a big slice with tea!). The lovely dark color brought on by the blend of spices in the pumpkin contrasts beautifully against the pale white of the filling. And the creamy texture of the filling is a great foil to the drier and firmer texture of the roll itself. This is an easy recipe that first timers can expect to have lots of success making.

This is a simple matter of blending the ingredients and popping the whole thing in the oven. Be sure not to over cook this roll because that can make it difficult to roll in the round and cause the roll to crack (if it is really over done). The roll mixture can be made by hand, although a mixer always makes things quicker. The filling is best made by machine, as cream cheese, butter and sugar need to be blended for quite some time to ensure you capture as much air as possible in the blend and make it as light as possible. Five to eight minutes is not too much blending for this mixture. And be sure to use the cream cheese at room temperature for best results.

Cream cheese is a wonderful complement to the rich and sultry flavors of this pumpkin roll. It is a great way to welcome the Fall season, and every one loves the scents of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and all those rich scents that herald this time of year. This recipe can also easily be doubled. Enjoy. Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Kat's Kitchen.
