Pumpkin Cream Cheese Roll

Sharing is caring!

There’s nothing I love more during fall/Halloween season than a yummy pumpkin roll!  Usually I just buy one from the store, but this year I attempted to make my own!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Roll


3/4 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
3 Eggs
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Pumpkin
2 Packages Cream Cheese
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
6 Tablespoons Butter

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F and then line a cookie sheet (or, if you happen to have one, a jelly roll pan) with parchment paper.  Grease (either with vegetable shortening or spray) and flour the parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt with a whisk.  Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until smooth.  Stir in the pumpkin then the flour mix.  Spread the batter evenly into the floured and greased pan.
  4. Take a clean kitchen towel and sprinkle powdered sugar on it.
  5. Bake the cake for about 15 minutes, or until it springs back to the touch.  Immediately after taking the cake out of the oven, loosen and flip onto the kitchen towel.  Peel the parchment paper off carefully.  Then roll the cake and towel together and let cool completely (note – I was impatient and put the roll into the refrigerator to cool – I do not recommend this because I had a few cracks in it after it cooled and I have a suspicion that this is why!).
  6. When the roll has cooled, before unrolling it, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and butter with a mixer until smooth and creamy.  Unroll the roll and, using a spatula, spread the filling on to the cake.
  7. Refrigerate the roll – I recommend overnight for best results, but you can refrigerate it as little as 1-2 hours and it will still be delicious.
  8. Enjoy!  🙂
