Pumpkin Cake Roll


dessert for my family or unexpected guests, to take to a gathering or to give as a yummy gift. The recipe is in such demand, I use a 29-ounce can of pumpkin to make four cake rolls at a time. A thin pumpkin cake, rolled around in a white cream filling, then in nuts. Can be frozen and served chilled. Dust with confectioners’ sugar, if desired. With kitchen-tested quality recipes and step-by-step tutorials, my goal is to give you the confidence to bake and cook from scratch.

Give me ALL the pumpkin! Last week I shared my new favorite pumpkin cookies, did you see them. They are CHEWY (not cakey). Picture your favorite chocolate chip cookie that’s crisp on the outside and soft on the inside–and then add pumpkin spice flavors to it. YUMMMMM.

Pumpkin cake roll, small batch style! A mini cake roll recipe made in a 8×8″ brownie pan makes a small cake roll that serves two. Recipe makes 8-9 small slices of cake.


3 eggs

3/4 cup all-purpose flour+1 cup finely chopped walnuts

2 tspn ground cinnamon+1 tspn baking powder

1 tspn ground ginger+1/2 tspn ground nutmeg

1/2 tspn salt+1 tspn lemon juice

1 cup granulated sugar+2/3 cup canned pumpkin

Powdered sugar

1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup butter, softened+1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 tspn vanilla


step 1 : Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Line bottom of pan with waxed paper or parchment paper; grease paper. Set pan aside. In a small bowl stir together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger, salt, and nutmeg; set aside.

step 2 : Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs with an electric mixer on high speed about 5 minutes or until thick and lemon color. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating on medium speed until light and fluffy. Stir in pumpkin and lemon juice. Beat in flour mixture on low to medium speed just until combined. Spread batter evenly in the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with walnuts.

step 3 : Bake about 15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately loosen edges of cake from pan and turn cake out onto a clean kitchen towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Remove waxed paper. Roll towel and cake into a spiral, starting from a short side of the cake. Cool on a wire rack.

step 4 : Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla on medium speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar.

step 5 : Unroll cake; remove towel. Spread cake with filling to within 1 inch of the edges. Roll up cake; trim ends. Cover and chill for 2 to 48 hours.
