Pumpkin keeps this cake moist and replaces the oil found in a typical layer cake; so you're getting vitamins, not fat. Serve this one up and your guests will rave—and no one has to know just how easy it was! —Heidi Reinhard, Montpelier, Indiana

Directions

  1. Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with waxed paper. Coat the paper with cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs for 3 minutes.

  4. For filling, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, vanilla and remaining confectioners' sugar until fluffy.
  5. Unroll cake; spread filling evenly over cake to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Yield: 12 servings.

"I was hesitant to try this cake as I have never made a roulade cake before. I was surprised and pleased at how easy it was to make this recipe! I followed the directions exactly as written and the cake turned out exactly as the picture. I sliced the leftovers, wrapped them in saran wrap and froze them. I found the cake froze extremely well. Thank you for a great recipe. I'll be making this cake often."
