Pumpkin Roll?

I went to my boyfriends Christmas dinner and they had a pumpkin roll there. It was the best tasting thing I'd had in a while. Does anyone have a recipe for it or know how to make it?

    Pumpkin Roll

    "This is the best pumpkin roll I've ever tasted. Everyone who tastes it always ask for the recipe. Note: One 29 ounce can of pumpkin will make 5 pumpkin rolls. Dust with additional confectioners' sugar, if desired."


    3 eggs

    2/3 cup canned pumpkin

    1 cup white sugar

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour

    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    confectioners' sugar for dusting

    2 tablespoons butter, softened

    8 ounces cream cheese

    3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1 cup confectioners' sugar


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 15x10x1 inch baking pan and line with parchment paper. Grease and flour the paper.

    In a large bowl, beat eggs on high for five minutes. Gradually add white sugar and pumpkin. Add flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Spread batter evenly in pan. Sprinkle walnuts evenly on top.

    Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately turn out onto a linen towel dusted with confectioners sugar. Peel off paper and roll cake up in the towel, starting with the short end. Cool.

    To Make Filling: Mix confectioners sugar, vanilla, butter or margarine, and cream cheese together till smooth.

    Carefully unroll the cake. Spread filling over cake to within 1 inch of edges. Roll up again. Cover and chill until serving. Dust with additional confectioners' sugar, if desired.

    1 cup milk

    1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree

    1/2 cup white sugar

    1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled

    2 teaspoons salt

    1 (0.6 ounce) cake compressed fresh yeast

    5 cups bread flour


    Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Let cool until lukewarm.

    In a large bowl, combine milk, pumpkin, sugar, butter, salt, yeast and 2 cups flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

    Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

    Divide the dough into four equal pieces, divide each of these pieces into four pieces and then divide each of these 16 pieces in half to make 32 pieces. Form each piece into a round and place on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
