Welcome to The Pauley Principle!

The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!

Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Use a 10"X15" jelly roll pan. Grease pan and line the bottom with parchment or waxed paper. Grease and flour the paper. In a small bowl, combine the following ingredients:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1    tsp. cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp. cloves, ground
1/4 tsp. salt

In a large mixing bowl, add the following and beat until thick and smooth:
     3 large eggs
     1 cup granulated sugar
Then add:
     2 tsp. butter
     3/4 cup pumpkin puree
Stir in the flour mixture from the small bowl. Then spread batter evenly into the jelly roll pan. Sprinkle with:
    3/4 cup finely chopped pecans.

Bake at 375 degrees F for about 12 to 15 minutes, checking for doneness in the center. Be careful not to overbake.

Prepare a clean thin kitchen towel by laying it on a flat surface and sprinkling evenly with:
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
Turn the cake, still warm, out onto the prepared towel. Then, starting with a narrow end, roll up the cake, towel and all.

Mix the following ingredients in a small bowl:
    1 pkg. cream cheese, 8 oz., at room temperature
    1 cup powdered sugar
    5 T. butter
    1 T. lard
    1 tsp. vanilla

Unroll the cooled cake. Frost the entire surface. Roll the cake back up (without the towel). Surround in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar at serving time.
