Clean kitchen towel
For the Cake
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour sifted
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup canned pumpkin or homemade pumpkin puree
- 3 large eggs Room temperature
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- powdered sugar for dusting
For the Cream Cheese Frosting
- 8 oz cream cheese softened
- 4 tbsp butter softened
- 1 c powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Bring eggs, butter and cream cheese to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease jelly roll pan, line with parchment paper and grease parchment paper. Set aside.
Dust powdered sugar over clean kitchen towel. Set aside.
For the Cake:
Beat eggs and sugar until light and fully combined.
Add all cake ingredients except flour and pumpkin. Mix after each addition.
Add flour and pumpkin. Mix well.
Pour batter into greased jelly roll pan.
Bake at 350°F until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. About 10-12 minutes.
Once cake is baked, allow it to very slightly cool.
Turn cake onto clean and dusted towel and remove parchment paper. Trim edges to even them out.
Spread cream cheese frosting over one side of the cake making sure to frost end to end.
Flip one end of towel over the cake. Begin to very slowly roll cake into log.
Once your roll is started, remove the towel and finish rolling into a pumpkin roll.
Chill 2 hours, then slice and serve.
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
You will need to taste the cream cheese frosting to test the sweetness. Taste it to make sure it’s sweet enough.
If not, add a very tiny amount of powdered sugar and whip again. Rinse and repeat. Once it’s sweet enough for your family, set aside and get ready to put this easy pumpkin roll together.
If your cream cheese filling is too sweet, adding a bit of whole or 2% milk will help cut the sweetness. Just be sure not to add too much. If you do, you’ll have a runny filling/frosting.
