Just found this in a mystery book I am reading and looks yummy so thought I would share.

1 tsp baking powder 1 cup flour ½tsp salt
½tsp nutmeg 1tsp ginger 2 tsp cinnamon
Filling

Preheat oven to 180deg. Grease a sponge roll tin and paper the base. Beat the eggs, add sugar and mix well. Add pumpkin and mix well. Add the dry ingredients. Put into the pan and level the mixture. Bake for 20 min. When cooked, turn onto a tea towel sprinkled with sugar. Remove the paper and wrap up the sponge immediately enclosing the towel as well. Cool at least 30min. While cooling, make the filling . Beat the cream cheese until smooth and add the butter. Add the icing sugar and vanilla. Unwrap the sponge and add the filling and rewrap. Chill for at least an hour. Will freeze well.
