Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Pumpkin cake rolled up with homemade cream cheese frosting, for a stunning and delicious fall dessert!


For the Cake:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 eggs

For the Frosting:

  • 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter


  • Step 1:

    Pre-heat oven to 375. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and set aside.

  • Step 2:

    Mix sugar and eggs for a good five minutes. Add pumpkin and mix in the dry ingredients.

  • Step 3:

    Pour batter into a 10x15x1 inch jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper.

  • Step 4:

    Spread evenly and bake at 375 degrees for 14 minutes.

  • Step 5:

    Cream together all the cream cheese frosting ingredients using a hand mixer.

  • Step 6:

    Immediately after cake is done baking, slip it out of the jelly roll pan (still on parchment) and flatten the sides of the paper.

  • Step 7:

    Tightly and carefully roll it up while it's still hot on the parchment paper. Let cool. Once cool, unroll and unwrap from the parchment paper and spread frosting while it is flat.

  • Step 8:

    Carefully roll it back up and sprinkle with a little bit of powdered sugar on top. I also cut off the ends a little to make the edges look neater.

I had no issues getting this to work. I love the parchment paper trick! It worked great the first try. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this moist, creamy, pumpkin treat! 🙂

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.
