Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly coat a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with nonstick spray for baking. Line the bottom of the pan with waxed paper or parchment paper; coat with nonstick spray for baking. Set pan aside. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt; set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until well mixed. Stir in pumpkin and molasses. Fold in flour mixture. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.

  • Bake about 15 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Immediately loosen edges of cake from pan and turn cake out onto a towel sprinkled generously with powdered sugar. Slowly peel off waxed paper. Starting from a short side, roll up towel and cake into a spiral. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour.

  • Meanwhile, prepare pumpkin cream filling: In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin and ground ginger. Fold in thawed whipped topping.

  • Unroll cake; remove towel. Spread cake with the filling to within 1 inch of edges. Roll up cake and filling into a spiral. Trim ends. Cover and chill for 2 to 48 hours before serving. To serve, place cake roll on a platter. If desired, garnish with rosemary sprigs and cranberries and sprinkle top with powdered sugar.
