Lighter Pumpkin Roll Cake

330 Fewer Calories
12 g Less Fat

Ingredients:

Cake:
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup pure canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

Filling:
1 1/2 cups fat free frozen thawed nondairy whipped topping
1/3 cup English toffee bits
1 tablespoon dark rum

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 – inch jelly-roll pan with wax paper and spray with cooking spray. Dust a clean kitchen towel with the confectioners’ sugar, and set aside.

Combine the flour, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and salt in a medium bowl.

With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff, glossy peaks form. Set aside. In a medium bowl, with the mixer on high speed (no need to clean the beaters), beat the egg yolks and remaining 1/2 cup sugar until pale yellow and thickened, about 4 minutes. Add the vanilla, beating until a ribbon forms when the beaters are lifted. Reduce the speed to low. Beat in the pumpkin until blended. With a rubber spatula, add the flour mixture until blended. Gently fold the beaten whites into the egg yolk mixture just until no streaks of white remain.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake until the cake springs back when lightly pressed in the center, about 15 minutes. Run a thin knife around the cake to loosen it from the pan; invert onto the sugar-dusted towel; carefully peel off the wax paper. While the cake is still warm and starting with a short side, roll up the cake with the towel. Place, seam side down, on a rack and let cool completely.

Meanwhile, to make the filling, combine the whipped topping, toffee pieces, and rum in a medium bowl. Unroll the cake and remove the towel. With a narrow metal spatula, spread the filling over the cake. Reroll the cake; place, seam side down, on a serving plate. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and cut into 8 slices.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
