Pumpkin Cake Roll (Easier than you think!)

This is a recipe I've made for almost 40 years! And just now realized it wasn't on my blog!!!  Do Tell!

I know this recipe can seem intimidating, but it really isn't as difficult as it may seem - hope it's something your family will enjoy this holiday season too. It's definitely one of our family favorites!

So if you've never tried making a pumpkin's the time to JUST.DO.IT!

Give it a try! It's an impressive dish and I'm guessing you'll want to make it for Christmas too.

It's one my boys tend to favor so it's something I stick with...but I do love my 
Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cake Roll  also...with caramel in the filling!


pumpkin roll


3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup solid pack pumpkin
1 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 375. Grease jelly roll pan - 10" X 15" X 1". (I like to line the bottom with waxed paper - after greasing pan - to ensure the bottom of the cake comes out in one piece) Beat eggs on high speed for 5 minutes. Gradually add sugar; stir in pumpkin and lemon juice.

In a separate bowl, stir flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt together. Fold into the pumpkin mixture. Spread in prepared pan. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake 15 minutes.

Remove from oven; turn upside down onto a towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. ( I loosen the edges first). Remove waxed paper, roll up the cake and towel together, while still warm. Let cool to room temperature. Unroll and spread with cream cheese frosting.


8 ozs. cream cheese, softened
4 Tb. butter or margarine, softened
1-1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Beat cream cheese and margarine until smooth - mix in powdered sugar and vanilla. Frost cake - roll up and chill until serving. Can be made a few days ahead or even frozen, wrapped tightly with saran wrap.
