Tania's Pumpkin Roll

What you need: 

egg substitute equivalent to 3 eggs (I like ground flax)
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
Filling:
2 tablespoons Earth Balance butter replacement
8 oz Tofutti "Better Than Cream Cheese"
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup 10x (powdered) sugar (I grind sugar in grinder until powder)

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 10x13in. cookie sheet by placing wax paper on sheet and spraying with cooking spray (I like olive oil spray).
Mix all ingredients and pour onto wax paper. Spread mixture evenly. Bake for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle top of roll with extra 10x sugar and place a clean, dry tea towel over top. Invert cookie sheet onto tea towel and remove wax paper from bottom of roll. Roll up with tea towel still in place until cool.
Prepare filling by combining all ingredients and blending with mixer until smooth.
When roll is completely cooled, unroll and spread on filling. Roll back up.
Sprinkle with more 10x sugar if desired. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until filling is firm.
Slice and serve. Freezes well.

Although this tasted great, when I tried to roll it up, it totally fell apart.  I ended up scraping everything off the dish towel and heaping it on a plate.  We still ate it though!!  ::)  I think this may have been my fault, I may have used too much flax in my flax eggs (2 TB flax, and 3 TB H2O per egg....some recipes I've seen call for only 1TB flax).  Also, I made my own cream cheese, which wasn't as thick as normal Tofutti.  I'd definitely recommend leaving the layer of parchment on top when you turn it onto the towl and also putting a parchment layer between the towl and the cake, to prevent it becoming glued on like mind did when I rolled it up...

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has used this recipe with something other than flaxseeds as the egg replacer? My daughter is allergic to flax...boo. I have some leftover pumpkin from a pie and this sounds really yummy and fun! I have ener-g and bananas on hand...hmm..I might try using some of both instead of the flax....suggestions anyone?

okay, so I figured out how to do this, and it is fantastic!
I think 15 minutes might be too long because when i unrolled it, it cracked, and there was a little bit too much filling, it squished out the end with I rolled it back up.  also, I used flax as the egg replacer.

yummy though! I will deff. make this again

do you wrap the tea towel inside it? or do you roll it up and then wrap it in the tea towel on the outside only? I'm confused especially with adding the filling and then rolling it back up again ... but I want to try this for my family Thanksgiving dinner!

anyone know??

I rarely make desserts, but I'm glad I picked this one.
