homemade pumpkin roll recipe
We love pumpkin in our house. There is something special about a pumpkin roll. And they are so easy to make.
They only need 15 minutes in the oven at 375. You could make these for your family and friends for Christmas or for Thanksgiving celebrations. These would make great gifts for friends and family too. I would suggest making 2. We end up eating one for ourselves and have none to give out when we make one.
If you store your roll in the freezer until you give them as gifts or until you are ready to eat them, it will keep them fresher longer.
Things you’ll need:
bar pan/cookie sheet with a lip
3/4 cup flour
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 package (8 oz) softened cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
Making the pumpkin roll
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In your bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking soda and pumpkin spice together.
Stir until mixed, then add the pumpkin puree, apple sauce and lemon juice.
Place parchment paper on the sheet and spray with non-stick spray (so the roll doesn’t stick!)
Pour the pumpkin mix on to the pan and with your spatula, spread the dough out evenly.
Place in the oven and bake for 15 -20 minutes, until a toothpick pulls out clear & remove from oven.
Take the clean towel and spread the 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar on the towel.
Flip the pan on top of the towel and remove. The pumpkin sheet should now be on the towel.
Allow the roll to cool.
Clean your bowl and make the frosting, adding the cream cheese, vanilla and butter. Mix until there are no lumps.
Add the powered sugar slowly until creamy.
After the pumpkin roll is cooled, spread the frosting evenly.
Immediately roll the pumpkin roll and wrap in plastic wrap or aluminium foil and place into the refrigerator.
Allow to chill, serve and enjoy.
