Cake Layer

3 eggs

2/3 c. pumpkin
1 tsp. baking soda
¾ c. All Purpose Flour

Pour mixture into pan and spread very thin. Cook in 375 degree preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes. The cake will be slightly brownish on top. Cool 10 minutes or so.

While this is cooking, sprinkle dishtowel with a generous amount of powdered sugar. Invert cake onto powdered sugar cloth. Fold the dishtowel edges around the cake and roll it up including the dishtowel to set the shape. Cool in towel until completely cool.

1 c. powdered sugar
Alabama pecans

Cream butter and cream cheese with mixer until smooth. Add vanilla and powdered sugar and mix until smooth. If you wish, add ½ cup chopped Alabama pecans to icing such as Priesters, Whaley, Louisville or Tucker.

Gently unroll the towel. The cake may crack a little. Spread filling all the way to the edge. Then roll up jellyroll style wrap in wax paper, then foil if you wish to freeze and serve. Or serve immediately!
