    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour a Swiss roll tin.
    2. Combine the self-raising flour, white sugar, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and spice. Stir in the pumpkin, then beat in the eggs, one at a time, until blended.
    3. Pour batter into prepared tin. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Immediately turn cake out onto a damp cotton towel. Starting from a long side, roll cake with the towel Swiss-roll fashion. Cool cake roll, seam side down, on wire rack until completely cool, about 1 hour. Gently unroll to fill.
    4. To make the cream cheese filling: Cream together the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the icing sugar, mixing until smooth. Fill the cake and roll it back up again.

    This made a delicious and beautiful cake that pleased everyone who tried it!! It was fairly easy to roll, and I only ended up with one crack which I disguised by tucking under. There was extra filling left over, but it was tasty and I used it for something else, so no harm was done there!! The cake was moist and wonderful. I changed nothing in the recipe, and shall make it again!  -  02 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is very good, but I use baking mix instead of the flour, and sprinkle my towel with confectioners sugar before rolling.  -  04 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cake was fabulous!! I served it at a birthday party for my friend along with cinnamon ice-cream and it was a HUGE hit! Make sure to keep it stored in the refridgerator though.  -  28 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
