Pumpkin Roll

This pumpkin roll recipe consists of sweet and moist pumpkin-flavored sponge roll wrapped around a  silky rich cream cheese filling. It is rolled up like a pinwheel.  It makes a great dessert, especially for holidays. Serve and impress your guests anytime of the year with this pinwheel cake. It is so easy to make if you follow the step by step directions. I made this amazing Pumpkin Roll cake from my leftover pumpkin puree. It was my first time to make sponge roll cake and I was quite nervous but it turned out pretty good. This recipe might sound difficult but it was really so easy to make. Give it a try.

Pumpkin Roll Recipe
Adapted from Realmomkitchen

Ingredients :
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree

Cooking Directions:

  • Mix together all ingredients.
  • Cover a 10×15 inch cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper, wider and longer than the cookie sheet.
  • Pour batter onto parchment paper and spread evenly, making sure to get into the corners of the cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes (less if the edges start to get really dark – it should look like cake and feel spongy to the touch).
  • Next, turn onto a towel that has been generously covered with powdered sugar. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes and remove the parchment paper.
  • Roll the cake up, jelly roll style, in the towel starting with the short end. Allow to cool for ten minutes. (This helps the cake to keep the roll form. If you did this when it was cooled the cake would crack and not keep the nice form)
  • While cake cools mix filling ingredients.
Filling Recipe

  • 8 oz of cream cheese, softened (reduced fat work fine)
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter, softened

Cooking Directions:
  • Mix filling ingredients with a mixer until smooth.
  • Unroll cake from towel and spread with filling
  • Re-roll with out the towel, wrap in foil and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours.
  • Cut into slices and serve. Enjoy!
