Fall has arrived. I know this because there are leaves on the ground and I watch children walk to school all bundled up in coats and hats. I know it's Fall because the stores are full of pumpkins and gourds and Halloween costumes and cinnamon scented candles.Those are all pretty good indicators, but each morning when my Pinterest page opens up, I'm absolutely sure it's Fall because there are recipes upon recipes using pumpkin! Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin soup... everybody's in the mood for pumpkin!
So, today I rolled up my sleeves and rolled up a pumpkin cake! This is the Libby's Pumpkin Roll. I've made it in the past and it's very good. The filling is a mixture of cream cheese, powdered sugar, and butter... very creamy and just the thing for this cinnamon and clove scented cake.
The recipe calls for 1/4 cup powdered sugar to be dusted on a tea towel. If you don't use enough sugar, your cake will stick to the towel. Just to make sure, I used a lot of powdered sugar on the towel... probably a cup. The cake didn't stick at all, so I'd recommend using a little more sugar than the recipe calls for to roll up the baked cake.
A slice of this cake and a cup of coffee are the first things on the agenda in the morning!
