Christmas dessert recipe — pumpkin bread?

By: 7 December 2010 No Comment

I was in the baking mood yesterday so I whipped up some pumpkin bread.

I love pumpkin bread nothing says holidays like the smell of it in the house. You may think I am sharing my pumpkin bread recipe with you today, but you’re wrong.

The only thing that can make pumpkin bread better is cream cheese — a central ingredient in pumpkin bread’s cousin, the pumpkin roll. So, I thought today I would share my Momma’s pumpkin roll recipe.

This is to die for. I hope you all enjoy.

Momma’s Pumpkin Roll

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup mashed cooked pumpkin
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
¾ cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Beat eggs at high speed for 5 minutes no less. Gradually add sugar beat well, stir in pumpkin and lemon juice. Combine dry ingredients and add to first mixture beating well. Spread in large cookie sheet that has a been well greased and floured. Bake 15 minutes at 375 degrees.

Turn cake out on tea towel sprinkled with powdered sugar, about a ½ cup. Roll cake up in tea towel jelly roll fashion, cool.
