Directions:

FOR CAKE:
PREHEAT
oven to 375° F. Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan; line with wax paper. Grease and flour paper. Sprinkle a thin, cotton kitchen towel with powdered sugar.

COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt in small bowl. Beat eggs and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until thick. Beat in pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle with nuts.

BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. (If using a dark-colored pan, begin checking for doneness at 11 minutes.) Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.

FOR FILLING:
BEAT
cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract in small mixer bowl until smooth. Carefully unroll cake. Spread cream cheese mixture over cake. Reroll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.

COOKING TIP:
Be sure to put enough powdered sugar on the towel when rolling up the cake so it will not stick.

    This isn't as hard to make as you might think, I've been making Libby's Pumpkin Rolls for 2 years now and they don't last long. They absolutely warm the soul, especially with a fresh cup of coffee!

    Great Dessert!

    Barbara O'Kain from Lake Forest, Ca

    I love this recipe but this year I made two and both cracked when I unrolled it to frost. It still tasted great anyway. The only thing I can make of this is that my flour was old. It does have an expiration date! And mine was old!

    My whole family loved this! Just be careful when rolling it that you don't roll too tight or the cream cheese mixture will come out..But other than that, IT'S GREAT!

    Piumpkin Roll

    Annie Bridgforth from Oklahoma

    We did a version of this. We made it an actual cake out of the pumpkin spice mix and added walnuts and chocolate chips then put the cream cheese frosting on top and it was great!!! A big hit with the whole family.

    Joan Hale from Wilbraham, MA

    I served this when I wished to "make' a special impression. I "streaked" some butterscotch sauce over my dessert plate and then I added a dollop of whipped cream on top. I think it enhanced the presentation.

    Goodtimes

    Sandra Daniels from Quincy, MI

    My girlfriend use to make pumpkin rolls for our craftshows and I'd always buy some because they were so good. We aren't doing shows any more, got kind of burned out. I only get hers now when we have meetings together and she brings for our refreshment. I thought it was time I learned how to make my own so I could enjoy more often.

    The Best Pumpkin Roll

    Heather Allbecker from ,

    I can remember my mom making this recipe when I was growing up. She always said that Libby's was the best that she found. I remember one time when she used another recipe it tasted bad real bad she had to throw it away. Mom does not like pumpkin for the most part, but if we make this roll she will eat some of it. I have also made it for my family and they love it.

    THE BEST

    ELAINE KELLER from Rochester Hills, MI

    I made this for dessert last night (pumpkin isn't just for Thanksgiving!)and my husband was into it before dinner. Let's just say he didn't eat much dinner!

    Perfect

    T S from

    This was the first time I made a roll cake, and the first time I used pumpkin. Usually one to experiment, and one that never measures, this time I followed the directions exactly as written and it came out perfect. This recipe makes a big dessert. Fortunately, this cake freezes well and I've enjoyed a slice every few days with many more to come.

    A favorite in our house!

    Jenni Erbe from

    This has been an all-time favorite in our house for years. It's always a hit with family & friends. I put the rolled cake in the fridge to cool while I make the filling- don't let cool too long or it will crack when you unroll to fill. I make 1 1/2 of the filling. DELICIOUS!!!

    Libby's Pumpkin Roll

    My family was having a get together and requested that I bring dessert. I had always wanted to make a pumpkin roll but was a little sceptical that it would work right for me. I got the recipe off your site and tried it. It was VERY EASY to make and VERY SCRUMPTIOUS! My family raved over it and everyone wanted a copy of the recipe! I will definetly be making it again and again.
