Pumpkin Rolls

pumpkin rollsA friend of mine makes pumpkin rolls that are, according to my husband, “divine”.  So  I modified the recipe.  They turned out fabulous!  On a side note, I always thought this would be terribly difficult before and was afraid to try it but it was surprisingly simple.

Here’s the recipe!

Cake ingredients:

3 eggs, separated

2 pkgs stevia

1/2 Cup Honey

2/3 Cup pumpkin

1 tsp Lemon Juice

3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp salt

Chopped nuts (optional)

1. Beat egg whites until stiff, set aside.  Beat egg yolks until frothy, add remaining ingredients to egg yolks and beat well.  Fold batter into beaten egg whites.

2. Spread on a 15x9x1 in pan that has been greased, lined with wax paper and greased again.  If desired, sprinkle with chopped nuts.

3. Bake in a 375° oven for 15 minutes, till starting to brown on top and a little brown around the edges.

4. Turn hot cake onto a tea towel that has been sprinkled with flour and cinnamon.  Peel off wax paper and trim the edges of the cake off.

5. Pull, rolling the towel up with the cake.  Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes while you prepare the filling.

6. Unroll the cake.  Spread filling evenly over the surface. Roll the cake back up and sprinkle with more cinnamon, if desired.

Filling ingredients:

2 pkgs stevia

1/2 cup honey

4 Tbsp Butter

1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese

1/2 tsp vanilla

Beat all ingredients together until smooth.  Spread inside pumpkin roll (see step 6 above)


1. We found that the cake tastes better the second day so make it ahead of time.

2. String works fabulously to cut this cake, just cut a piece big enough to go all the way around the cake, slip it underneath to desired width, cross the string above the cake and pull.

3. It cuts better if it has been chilled.

4. The recipe says it freezes well, but mine has never lasted long enough to find out!

5. One can of pumpkin can make 4 rolls with some pumpkin left over.  My friend will often substitute a baked sweet potato for pumpkin.

Pumpkin Cookies

When I was making pumpkin soup a few days ago, the baby asked for cookies.  Since there was some leftover pumpkin, I thought “how about pumpkin cookies?”  So I looked up a recipe on allrecipes.com fixed it to fit my diet and voila!  These are awesome! I’ve eaten many, and they even won a seal of approval from my sweetheart.  We will definitely be making these again!
