Barbara's Pumpkin Roll


  1. Beat eggs & sugar on high for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir-in pumpkin & lemon juice.
  3. Separately mix dry ingredients then fold into the pumpkin mixture.
  4. Spread into greased & floured 15" x 10" x 1" pan and top with almond slivers.
  5. Cook at 350° for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Turn-out on a towel (I sandwich a regular kitchen towel with two thin linen type towels) covered with powdered sugar & roll.
  7. Let cool completely before unfolding to fill.


  1. Mix all together with a beater until smooth and spread onto the cake & re-roll.
  2. Freezing makes it possible to slice when ready to serve. It will thaw quickly after sliced.
