Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • Filling Ingredients:
  • 250 g block of Philadelphia Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 scraped vanilla bean pod or 1/2 - 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup icing sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 190°/375°F and grease and flour a 9x13 inch jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda and the pumpkin pie spice. Add in the pumpkin puree, eggs and lemon juice. Pour it into the prepared pan, ensuring that the thickness is even across the pan.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, until it is golden brown and springs back when touched lightly.
  4. While cake is baking, prepare a clean damp tea towel by sprinkling 1/4 cup of icing sugar across the towel. When the cake is baked, turn the cake upside down on the damp prepared tea towel. Carefully roll up the towel with the cake inside into a roll and place on a baking rack to cool (about 30 minutes or until completely cool).
  5. Using a mixer, beat together the cream cheese, butter, icing sugar and vanilla bean from a single vanilla pod, cut in half and scraped.
  6. When the cake has cooled, carefully unroll the cake and spread the vanilla bean cream cheese evenly across the cake. Make sure there is cream cheese in the starting curl, as this is the middle of our cake.
  7. Immediately re-roll the cake, without the towel and cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to use.
  8. When you are ready to serve, Dust with icing sugar and slice to your desired thickness. Enjoy!
