Pumpkin Roll Recipe Review


Sunday, December 01, 2013

I usually do a big Thanksgiving dinner with my expat friends here in Italy at some point between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I didn't have a big celebration this weekend. I wanted to commemorate the holiday in some way without going overboard, so I decided to make a guinea hen with a lovely red wine sauce, some simple boiled potatoes and Brussels sprouts and a nice, but not too decadent dessert. Since I can't seem to get enough of pumpkin lately, I decided to make this pumpkin roll I found on skinnytaste.com:

-up.html


The only change I made to the recipe was to use my own boiled and pureed pumpkin instead of the canned stuff, which is imported and very expensive here. The result was great! The sponge cake was incredibly tasty and moist and the filling was addictive--actually the whole thing was. I'd recommend serving this to a big group or bringing it to someone's house so you're not tempted by the leftovers. At just under 200 calories for a decent-sized slice, I think this is an excellent dessert deal that tastes great and won't send your daily calorie count soaring.

My effort and picture isn't as nice looking as the one on the skinnytaste.com site, but it sure was delicious:
