Thanksgiving Day Dessert: Apple Cider Pumpkin Roll

Thanksgiving Day Dessert: Apple Cider Pumpkin Roll
By Sarah Ganly

Thanksgiving season is the time of year where pumpkin and apple is the most accessible and delicious staple one can have in the home, and there are several delicious treats you can make with these items, but the best recipe for apples and pumpkin is this apple cider pumpkin roll. There is no better dessert for a Thanksgiving Day meal!
This cake requires ingredients for both the cake and the frosting.
The ingredients you will need for the cake are as follows; 3/4 cup of flour, half a cup of white sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 1 teaspoon of nutmeg or allspice, one cup of pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin, half a cup of white sugar, half a cup of apple cider, 2 eggs, and 4 tablespoons of confectioner's sugar. You will also need a clean damp linen.
For the icing the recipe is simple; all you will need is a fourth of a cup of butter softened, 12 ounces of cream cheese softened, half a cup of apple cider, and half a cup of confectioner's sugar.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Before you start mixing your cake set the wet linen out on a counter and sprinkle it with the powdered sugar. During this time you should also put the apple cider for the icing in a pot on the stove to simmer.
To make the cake mix the dry ingredients first, then add the pumpkin, cider, and eggs to the mix. When all of the ingredients are combined spread the batter on a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch sheet pan. Cook in oven for 15 minutes. The edges will be crisp.
While the cake is cooking you should make your icing. All you have to do is whip the ingredients together. Remember to pay attention to the apple cider on the stove; the apple cider should reduce but not burn. Take it off just before you put the cake in the oven.
After the cake comes out of the oven flip it over onto the linen and roll it into a spiral. Set it on a tray to cool for 20 minutes.
When the cake is cooled unroll it, spread it with the icing and reroll it immediately. Wrap with plastic and refrigerate for at least half an hour.
When you are ready to serve unwrap and slice. Arrange in a fun pattern on the plate. You can add some apple cider ice cream or whipped cream to this delicious treat to make it even more scrumptious!
