Pumpkin Roll Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 eggs, room temp
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar

Pumpkin Roll dessert


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prep a cookie sheet with baking spray.

Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, ginger and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Stir together the pumpkin puree, eggs and lemon juice.

Next, stir in the pumpkin puree mixture into the dry ingredients. Pour mixture into cookie sheet. Spread the mixture evenly across the bottom of the cookie sheet. I always bake any bakery items on a silicone baking mat. It bakes so well and gives a non-stick surface!


Silicone Baking Mat – 2 pack

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

Put a damp cloth on a wooden cutting board, then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Place the cloth covered cutting board over the cookie sheet holding the pumpkin cake and turn the cake onto the towel.

Being very gentle roll the towel up with the cake inside of it. Place the cake-towel combo on a wire cooling rack. Allow to cool for 20 minutes.

Cream Cheese Icing Ingredients:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


Blend cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and sugar with an electric mixer.

Unroll the cake spreading icing onto it. Immediately re-roll (without the towel), wrapping it with plastic wrap.

Keep the cake refrigerated, until ready to serve. Cut the cake in slices and serve.

I love pumpkin roll and make them usually only around Christmas. One year I made 21 of them and gave them out as gifts to people. Mostly people that didn't have any or much family. They were thrilled and loved them.
