Homemade Pumpkin Roll Recipe

I had some pumpkin left over from the Frozen Pumpkin Yogurt last week and thought I would put it to good use. This is my Mom’s Pumpkin Roll recipe and clearly my sister has donned it as her signature dessert as she is the one who normally makes them for everyone each year.

These are super easy to make and other than the pumpkin, the other ingredients are more than likely already in your pantry. It is perfect for this time of year and a great treat to make for others. These even freeze really well if you would like to bake ahead for unplanned holiday visitors.

Pumpkin Roll
Ingredients Needed:

{for the cake roll}
3 Eggs
2/3 Cups of Canned Pumpkin
1 Cup of Sugar
3/4 Cups of Flour
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

{for the filling}
2 Tablespoons of Butter
1 8 Ounce Package of Cream Cheese
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Vanilla
1 Cup of 10X Sugar

Preheat the oven to 400°. Place all of the cake roll ingredients in a bowl and mix together by hand until well blended. Lightly spray a 9 X 13 cookie sheet with cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper. Pour batter into pan, spreading evenly with a spatula, and bake for 20 minutes.

As soon as it comes out of the oven lay a clean dish towel on top the pan and flip over to release the roll. Peal away the parchment paper and tightly roll the cake up with the dishtowel. Set aside to cool, seam-side down.

While the roll is cooling prepare the filling. In a medium bowl mix the butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar together on medium speed with a hand mixer, until well blended.

Carefully unwrap the cake roll and place flat on a piece of wax paper. Evenly spread the filling and roll back up. Wrap the entire roll in the wax paper and and chill in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour, seam side down. {or tightly roll in aluminum foil, place in a plastic bag, and freeze for later}

It is hard getting away eating only one slice – it is that yummy!

Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend ~ Enjoy.

  16. Going to repin and make this weekend. Thank you for the recipe!

  17. Found your blog through pinterest. My husband has been wanting his grandmother to make a pumpkin roll with some leftover cans of pumpkin that we had. I got tired of listening to him so I finally decided to find a recipe. He loved it. Thank you for sharing your recipe. It turned out really good.

  18. 1 cup 10X sugar? is this powdered sugar?

  19. Just made this it is awesome and super easy!!!!!!

  20. Silly question but do I spray the pan and THEN line with parchment paper??

  21. This looks amazing, I can’t wait to try it!!! Just one question, what is 10x sugar?

  22. I love this recipe. It is fool proof. I add almonds to the cake batter and it gives it a bit of crunch. This is the easiest recipe I have used and by far the best.
