My Tupperware Lady shared this recipe with me 25 years ago. It's been a holiday dessert ever since. Don't be afraid of rolling the cake up in the towel. It's easy and worth it! Cut them into thinner slices and spiral them on a round platter. Great presentation and wonderful food gift, plate and all.
Add pumpkin filling and rest of the cake ingredients. Beat an additional 5 minutes.
Line greased (shortening) jelly roll pan with greased (butter) wax paper. Pour in pan and bake 15 minutes in 350- degree oven. DO NOT OVER BAKE
Filling - Blend all filling ingredients together.
While still warm, flip cake onto powdered sugar coated tea towel. Tear off wax paper. Dust top of cake with a little powdered sugar, too. Roll up in tea towel to make one long roll. When cool, unroll and spread with cream cheese filling. Refrigerate before cutting.
OPTIONAL: Cinnamon sugared pecans sprinkled on top of the filling before rolling up takes it over the edge!
