Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Frosting

yield: 10 SERVINGS

prep time: 20 MINUTES

cook time: 15 MINUTES

total time: 35 MINUTES

Ingredients

Pumpkin Roll:

Cream Cheese Frosting:

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

Directions

1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2

Mix flour, salt, baking powder, pumpkin spice blend, and set aside.

3

Using an electric mixer, mix together sugar and eggs for about a minute until the eggs are fluffy.

4

Add pumpkin puree and then mix in the dry ingredients.

5

Pour batter into a 10"x15"x1" jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly and bake at 375 degrees for 14 minutes.

6

While the cake is cooking, make the frosting:

Use the electric mixer to cream together softened cream cheese, confectioners sugar, vanilla extract, and butter.

7

Immediately after the cake is done baking, slip it out of the jelly roll pan (while still on the parchment) and flatten the sides of the paper. Tightly and carefully roll it up while it’s still hot in the parchment paper. Let it cool while still rolled up.

8

Once cool, gently unroll the cake and remove it from the parchment paper. Spread the frosting while the cake is flat. Carefully roll it back up and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar on top. I also cut a little off the ends to make it look fancy.

Slice, serve, and enjoy!

Best of all, this pumpkin roll recipe is surprisingly easy to make at home!

Honestly, I’ve always been a little bit intimidated by the rolling aspect of this dessert, so I had never tried making a pumpkin roll until my husband requested one the other day. This was his childhood favorite, so I called my mother in law and had her talk me through it!

Hip tips for making a perfect pumpkin roll:


    • The perfect sized pan for this is a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan. I tried a larger pan and it was too thin and was a fail, just FYI! lol 
    • Getting the cake to form into a roll can be a little tricky, but still easy. Don’t skip the step of rolling up the cake while it’s still warm using the parchment paper. This allows the cake to cool and hold the roll shape, making sure it doesn’t crack when re-rolling it together with the frosting.
    • Interested in creating your own pumpkin spice seasoning blend for all your fall baking? Check out this homemade pumpkin spice recipe idea, I used in my cake!
    • Want to add in chopped nuts to the cake? My husband actually prefers this pumpkin roll with 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts to the cake batter. That’s a great add-in to consider!
