Applesauce Roulade with Cream Cheese Filling
Whether you want applesauce or pumpkin this is an easy, tasty recipe. If you have never rolled a cake then there are step by step photos for you.
First, the right size pan is essential, the pan you need will be labeled "jelly roll". It will be deeper than a sheet pan and a little smaller.
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup applesauce or pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3/4 cup flour, all purpose or white spelt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Grease the pan, line with wax paper, grease wax paper. Set aside. I use coconut oil for greasing pans because it is a much healthier fat than shortening.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
When ready to serve, unwrap, slice, dust with powdered sugar, and appreciate all the ooohhs and aaahhs. Good stuff!
