Pumpkin Roll

Updated: Nov 19, 2023

This is a dessert everyone loves and my mom has been making it for years. I believe you can even find this in grocery stores now! I prefer it for breakfast rather than dessert because it goes soooo well with coffee.

My mom is known for desserts in the family - but she also shows up with green bean casserole and Mexican cornbread every Thanksgiving . So, although she claims not to like cooking, she does a very good job of it!

Roll Ingredients:

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup self-rising flour

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp dried, ground ginger

1 tsp lemon juice

2/3 cup pumpkin

1 cup chopped pecans

Powdered sugar for dusting

  8. While roll is still warm, sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar

  9. Cover with a large tea towel and invert onto towel
