Charlotte's Pumpkin Roll
1 C. sugar
*2/3 C. canned pumpkin
1/2 C. pecans
3/4 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Hand mix all ingredients except nuts. Spread mixture on aluminum lined & buttered cookie sheet. Sprinkle pecans on top, bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Allow cake to cool for one minute then turn on to a twowel or cheesecloth which has been sprinkled with powdered sugar. Sprinkle a small amount of sugar on top of the cake, then roll fairly tightly in the cheesecloth. Leave rolled for at least 5 minutes.
Unroll, spread with cream cheese filling & refoll for a few minutes. Take closth off roll and tightly roll in foil and refrigerate.
This cake freezes well, especially before the filling has been added.
*NOTE: A regular 15 oz. size can of pumpkin will make 2 rolls. Simply double the other ingredients and bake two at a time, using regular cookie sheets. Not the very large ones.
Cream Cheese Filling
8 oz. cream cheese
2 tbs margarine
1 c. powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Soften cream cheese and margarine. Mix with powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread on roll. This will make enough filling for one roll.
Linda's Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake
1½ c sugar
½ c unsweetened applesauce
1½ c self-rising flour
15oz can pumpkin
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice.
1½ c regular flour
1½ c light brown sugar, packed
1½ sticks margarine, softened but not melted completely
Preheat oven to 350° and spray and 8x8 pan. Using mixer, in large bowl combine sugar and applesauce. Blend well. Add eggs and pumpkin, mixing well. Add flour and pumpkin pie spice, blending well. Pour into pan. Mix regular flour and brown sugar into softened margarine. You should have coarse crumbs. Scatter over batter evenly. Bake for 45-60 minutes.
* You can use ½ oil instead of applesauce but it makes the cake very heavy.
*When using applesauce instead of oil, I buy it in the 6 pack individual cups. One of those equals ½ cup. Enjoy!
