    My daughter made one of these the other day and really suprised me.She is more of the social butterfly type but is in classes at a vocational school school in conjunction with her high school classes.I had heard of pumpkin rolls before but had never had one.It tasted like a desert you might find at a high dollar resturant.Ill get the recipe from her and post it soon.

    Here is a picture of pumpkin roll - It's not Christmas back east without this. Many churches make these and nut rolls as fund raisers...

    Yes you can beat it. Have some pumpkin roll. Good stuff. My wife won't make it unless it's a special occasion, she says it's too much of a hassle. Good stuff though.

    stopped out at our grocery store to get a birthday cake for a friend yesterday and saw they have pumpkin rolls out already! Guess what I had for breakfast...no it's not homemade, but it's really just as good from their bakery...

    i love pumpkin bread. my mom gave my wife a recipe for it. we changed it up by doubling the pumpkin. it called for 7oz pumpkin, we put in a 15oz can of pumpkin pie filling. tastes great. the pumpkin is marbled through it, after it is sliced up.
    i never have heard of putting butter on pumpkin bread.
