Hello companions! I'm popping back into alter this post — three years after it initially disclosed here on zee blog — in light of the fact that I have two Very Important Pumpkin Roll overhauls to impart to you. 

To begin with, we now have a favor new video instructional exercise to oblige this formula now, which I'm extremely amped up for. Since, of the considerable number of formulas on this blog, I have gotten likely the most inquiries from all of you about the "move" a portion of this formula. It's one of those that is harder to clarify with content and pictures, so I'm glad to say that you can now watch the entire procedure in around 1 minute in the video at the base of this post. Yessss! 

Second, I have to let all of you realize that I have entirely changed my technique for how to make a pumpkin move since I initially posted this three years back. The formula is still the same. Be that as it may, the old utilize a-powdered-sugar-concealed towel-to-roll the-cake strategy constantly used to unusual me out a bit. (<– I mean, I generally utilized clean towels, yet at the same time. The potential for towel fuzzies or smell saturating the take constantly used to unusual me out, and attempting to flip the cake was hard, and the greater part of that sugar constantly made such a wreck!) So I did a touch of testing, and incidentally, you can completely — and effectively — move, unroll, and move this cake up again utilizing a solitary straightforward sheet of material paper. Mind = blown. It's SO much less demanding and doesn't make a wreck, and the pumpkin roll is as delectable as usual. 

So on the off chance that you adore pumpkin moves as much as I do, you've gotta attempt it! ♥

Presently, with these more advantageous formulas on the site these days, I want to disavow — or perhaps I shouldn't feel the need — that this formula is for a work of art, granulated-sugary, AP-floury, rich, cream-gooey, customary pumpkin roll. The truth is out, no solid alternate routes here. Since on the maybe a couple events a year that I get the opportunity to eat a pumpkin move, I need the genuine article. So this falls completely in the "liberal" classification of this blog, however I can guarantee you that I appreciate each and every flavorful nibble. Custom, child! :) 

Yet, now, to break with convention slightly, here's my more "advanced" technique for how to make a great pumpkin roll. 

Start by stirring up a basic pumpkin cake hitter. You can either do this in a vast blending dish by hand, or with a stand blender. 

At that point lay a bit of material on a 15 x 10-crawl preparing sheet, abandoning some additional room on the long (15-creep) sides so you can without much of a stretch lift the cake out in the wake of heating. I jump at the chance to sprinkle a smidgen of water on my heating sheet to help the material stick and stay set up while I pour on the hitter. At that point spread the hitter equally on top of the material.

Then get ready.  Because as soon as the cake comes out of the oven, run a knife around the short (10-inch) sides of the pan to loosen the cake.  Then grab the sides of the parchment to lift the cake out of the pan (careful not to burn yourself), and place it on a flat heat-proof surface.  (You may need to use oven mitts since the cake will still be very hot!)

Then very carefully roll the cake — I prefer rolling short end to short end — until it forms a complete roll.  Transfer that to a wire rack and let it cool completely to room temperature, seam-side-down so that they cake does not unroll.  Then while the cake is cooling, whip up your cream cheese filling.  You can either do this by hand or in a stand mixer.  Just be sure that your ingredients are room temp so that they’re easy to stir!

Once the cake has cooled, put it back on a level surface and tenderly unroll it until the cake is generally level once more. At that point spread the cream cheddar rounding out equally on top of the cake, leaving a 3/4-creep fringe around all sides of the cake so that the rounding doesn't spill out while the cake is being re-rolled. 

At that point simply ahead and roll the cake move down once more, deliberately peeling off the material paper as you move until it until it is discharged. At that point wrap the completed pumpkin roll firmly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate it for 60 minutes.

Once the cake has cooled a bit (particularly that filling), expel and unwrap it when you're prepared to serve. At that point gently tidy the whole move with powdered sugar, and cut it up! I get a kick out of the chance to take a little cut off of both closures before serving, just on the off chance that the cream cheddar didn't totally fill those edges, to make it additional beautiful

Then voila — your beautiful pumpkin roll will be ready to enjoy!

Time to rock and pumpkin roll!  ;)


A classic pumpkin roll is always a crowd favorite!



  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • optional: powdered sugar (to sprinkle on at the end!)


  • 1 (8 ounce) brick cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract



Preheat oven to 375° F.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and salt in medium bowl until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and granulated sugar for 1 minute until thick. Add in the vanilla and pumpkin, and whisk until just combined. Fold in the flour mixture with a rubber spatula, and stir together until just combined.
Line a 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with parchment paper, leaving an extra 1-inch of parchment sticking up on both 15-inch sides of the pan so that you can easily lift the cake out after baking.  (If you'd like the parchment to stick to the bottom of the pan more easily, sprinkle a little bit of water on the pan and then press the parchment paper on top of it.  You can also lightly mist the top of the parchment paper with cooking spray for easier cake release afterwards, although it's not required.)
Spread the batter evenly into prepared pan.  Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until top of cake springs back when touched. Carefully lift the parchment paper and cake out onto a flat (and heat-safe) surface.  Then slowly, use your hands to roll the cake -- rolling from the short end to the short end -- until it is completely rolled up.  Transfer the cake roll to a wire rack, and cool until it reaches room temperature.
While the cake is cooling, make the cream cheese filling (see below).
When the cake has reached room temperature, transfer the cake roll to a flat surface, and carefully it until it is flat again (or mostly flat, it's ok if the ends curl up a bit). Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over cake, leaving a 3/4-inch border on all sides.  Then carefully re-roll the cake, gently peeling away the parchment paper as you roll until you can completely remove and discard it. Tightly wrap the pumpkin roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour.
Remove and unwrap the pumpkin roll and transfer it to your serving dish. Lightly dust the pumpkin roll on all sides with powdered sugar, if you would like.  Then slice* and serve.
If you have leftovers, just re-wrap the pumpkin roll in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.


Whisk together cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract until smooth. If the filling is too thin, add more powdered sugar. If it is too thick, add a half teaspoon or two of water.  (You want a medium consistency so that the filling is easy to spread, but not too warm or thin that it will ooze out of the cake when you're rolling it up.)

*If you want the cake to be pretty on the very ends, I recommend slicing off about 1/2-inch of the cake on both ends before serving.  Then you'll definitely see those pretty cream cheese swirls!
