The Best Pumpkin Roll

"This is the best pumpkin roll I've ever tasted. Everyone who tastes it always asks for the recipe. I make this every year for Thanksgiving Day and everyone always manages to cram some in their already stuffed bellies! Comes from Nancy at (Note: One 29 oz. can of pumpkin will make 5 pumpkin rolls.)"

Ready In:
1 pumpkin roll




  • Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 15x10x1 inch baking pan and line with parchment paper. Grease and flour the paper.
  • In large bowl, beat eggs on high for 5 minutes. Gradually add white sugar and pumpkin. Add flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Spread batter evenly in pan. Sprinkle walnuts evenly on top (if using).
  • Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately turn out onto a linen towel dusted with confectioners sugar. Peel off paper and roll cake up in the towel, starting with the short end. Cool.
  • Mike confectioners sugar, vanilla, butter or margarine and cream cheese together for filling until smooth.
  • Carefully unroll the cake. Spread filling over cake to within 1 inch of edges. Roll up again. Cover and chill until serving. Dust with additional confectioners sugar, if desired.

    This recipe was awesome! Tasted pumpkin roll for the first time at the Amish market at my local flea market. Feel accomplished that I was able to make it from scratch and my family is in LOVE!!! The cake is moist and the cream cheese filling is delish! Made one yesterday and today (just to finish using the leftover pumpkin). My new Kitchen Aid mixer made this recipe a breeze:)

    This is a great recipe! Finally a recipe that tells you how long to beat the eggs. My cake turned out perfect. I've always had trouble with this kind of cake baked in a jelly roll pan. This recipe is definitely better than the "Libby's" recipe. You just have to list the salt measurement in the recipe.
