  10. 1 cup sugar, divided
  11. 2/3 cup pumpkin, canned or fresh
  12. 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
For the filling
  1. 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  2. 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  3. 2 cups powdered sugar, plus extra for sprinkling on top
  4. 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  5. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 1 tablespoon heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan by greasing and sprinkling lightly with flour. Line pan with parchment paper or a baking mat, grease and flour paper. Generously sprinkle a thin kitchen towel with powdered sugar, set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks have formed. Slowly add in 1/2 cup sugar until stiff peaks have developed.
  4. In another bowl, beat egg yolks until thick. Mix in remaining 1/2 cup sugar and pumpkin, whisking together until sugar is mostly dissolved.
  5. Fold the egg whites into egg yolk-pumpkin mixture and add 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Gently fold in dry ingredients gradually.
  6. Spread into pan. Bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes. Immediately loosen up all the edges using a fork. Cool cake at least 5 minutes.
  7. Turn cake over onto the towel sprinkled with powdered sugar and peel off paper. Roll cake up in the towel and set in refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until thoroughly cooled.
  8. To make the filling: In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, and heavy cream.
  9. After it is cooled enough, gently unroll the cake and spread filling evenly on top. Gently re-roll the cake. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least an hour or until ready to serve. If desired, lightly dust with powdered sugar right before serving. Serve chilled!
