Butternut Roll
Recipe type: Cakes
  • 300 g cooked butternut squash, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 cup icing sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 225 g cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Coat a 39 cm x 27cm jam roll pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt; mix well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat eggs 4 - 5 minutes, or until fluffy. Beat in sugar, butternut squash, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat flour mixture into squash mixture until well blended, then pour batter onto baking sheet.
  4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and invert onto a clean kitchen towel that has been sprinkled with icing sugar. While cake is still hot, roll it up jam roll-style from the narrow end; cool on a wire rack. When cool, unroll cake and remove towel.
  5. In a small bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat 1 cup icing sugar, the cream cheese, butter, and remaining vanilla until creamy. Spread over top of cake then roll it up again. Chill at least 2 hours. When ready to serve, sprinkle with icing sugar, then cut into 1 cm slices.
  6. For that extra touch of class sprinkle with additional cinnamon when serving
