Ingredients

Cake Batter

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs

Filling

  • 2 Tablespoons softened butter
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Grease the bottoms and side of a jelly roll pan or baking sheet (mine was 10 x 15 inches).
  • Place parchment paper in the pan then grease the paper.

Cake Batter

  • Place all the cake batter ingredients sugar through eggs in the bowl of a stand mixer. Use the paddle attachment to mix on low speed until combined.
  • Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the cooked cake from the oven and place cake side down on a clean kitchen towel sprinkled with powdered sugar.
  • Carefully remove the paper.
  • Roll the towel and the cake together and allow the cake to cool.

Filling

  • Use a whisk to combine the butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
  • Add pecans if using.
  • Unroll the cooled cake.
  • Use a spatula to spread the filling over the cake but don't try to make it lay flat. The cake will try to roll at the ends.
  • After filling the cake, roll the cake back up and wrap it in plastic wrap.
  • Store it in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to set.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
