Pumpkin Roll

A spicy pumpkin cake rolled with sweetened cream cheese and nuts inside


12 servings


Cake ingredients:

3 eggs
2/3 cup pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
3/4 cup flour


2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup nuts, optional


1. Mix all cake ingredients. Lay wax paper on a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan. Grease and flour wax paper; pour batter onto wax paper in pan and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

2. Lay a clean dish towel on a flat surface with 1/3 cup powdered sugar sprinkled on it. Put baked cake upside down on towel. Take waxed paper off. Roll cake up with the towel, starting at the widest edge. Allow to cool.

3. Mix filling ingredients. Unroll cake and spread the filling and nuts inside. Roll back up (without the towel, of course!) and refrigerate. Slice into slices to serve.

Tammy's Review: 

This recipe was passed to me from my friend Sheri, who makes delicious pumpkin rolls! Joshua loves this when I make it, as the spicy pumpkin cake is "swirled" with a sweet cream cheese layer. I usually make two and freeze one for later. This is a delicious fancy-looking pumpkin dessert! My rating: 10/10


I made this for Christmas last year and it was wonderful! It made a beautiful, fancy-looking platter of goodies.


I tend to overlook recipes like this, because I doubt my abilities to make 'pretty' foods.

This cake was totally delicious, and wasn't hard to make.

I cut my wax paper too long, and the overhang started smoking in the oven. Next time I'll trim the paper to the right size!!
