The Perfect Pumpkin Roll Recipe Ever!


It’s really a simple and fast cake recipe. Start by mixing your eggs and pumpkin together. In a separate bowl you’ll want to mix the dry ingredients. Mixing the dry ingredients separate from the wet is very important. It ensure the spices and rising agents are all incorporated evenly so the cake not only tastes delicious but rises perfectly.

Recipe Notes
1 You will want to roll the pumpkin roll while it is still warm, right after it comes out of the oven! Rolling the pumpkin cake while warm will help reduce cracks.
2 Turn the pumpkin roll over on a flour sack towel or tea towel. You want to use a clean (not highly fragrant) towel that doesn’t have a lot of fibers that could embed into the cake.
3 Use powder sugar on the towel to keep the cake from sticking to it.
