Whole Wheat Pumpkin Log

I've never made a cake roll of any sort, so I was a little intimidated about trying to make a pumpkin log as the desert I was going to take to bible study! Should I take an experiment? Oh my, I hope the pumpkin log turns out!

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

8 ounces cream cheese
4 TBSP butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Step 1: Mix wet ingredients together.

Step 2: Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. I use a 50/50 combination of hard and soft white wheat.

Step 3: Mix wet and dry ingredients together and pour onto a jelly roll pan lined with wax paper.

Step 4: Bake at 375* for 15 minutes.

Step 5: While the cake is baking, soften the cream cheese and butter and beat together with sugar and vanilla until smooth.

Step 6: Let the roll cool 15 minutes on pan. Leave on wax paper and move to a tea towel to cool for 15 more minutes. Then flip the cake over onto a piece of plastic wrap and peel off the wax paper and roll the cake in the tea towel and let sit for a couple of minutes.

Step 7: Unroll and spread the filling to within an inch of all edges.

Step 8: Roll up your pumpkin log, chill for at least 2 hours and serve. I know the edges aren't pretty...just cut them off and enjoy a sample!

I wish I would have had the opportunity to take a picture of what each slice looked like when I served it. It turned out so pretty. The ladies at bible study loved it and the little bit that I brought home didn't last 5 minutes! Maybe I'll get a photo when I make another one with the rest of my pumpkin!
