Pumpkin Roll Recipe (Yields 16 slices)
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
¾ cup flour
Beat eggs and sugar together until well combined. Add the next four ingredients and mix well. Line a ½ sheet pan with parchment paper and coat well with non-stick cooking spray. Pour prepared batter in prepared pan. Bake on 350 for about 15 minutes
Meanwhile while cake is baking, lay out a clean kitchen towel and dust well with powdered sugar.
While the cake is still warm, flip it out onto the towel and pull off parchment paper and roll the cake into the towel, jelly roll style.
Prepare the filling

2 tbsp butter
1 cup powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients well until creamy. When cake has cooled in towel, unroll and spread with filling. Roll up the cake, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Freeze for one hour to make slicing easier.
