Even You Can Make a Pumpkin Roll!
Making my mom’s famous Pumpkin Roll has been something I’ve wanted to try for some time now. Truth of it is, I’ve been overwhelmed because it just seemed so complicated.
Well, if you are in that same predicament, let me assure you that it is much easier than you think!
Pumpkin Rolls are so fancy, but actually pretty simple.
What You Need to Make This Pumpkin Goodness:
- pumpkin roll recipe below
- cream cheese frosting (homemade is the best! recipe also below)
- jelly-roll pan. I use this one from Amazon and love it. It’s what I use for all my baking!
- tea towel
- patience (because yeah, it will take a bit of time to chill once you’ve made it)
If you are like me and love anything pumpkin, try making a Pumpkin Roll. I have a feeling that I might just make these for every Fall gathering we go to. The combination of pumpkin and homemade cream cheese frosting is my favorite.
So once you’ve made the pumkin roll:
Once you’ve made this, you can wrap it up in plastic wrap and keep it chilled in the fridge. In fact, like I said above, you’ll definitely want to chill it for at least a few hours, but the longer the better.
Of course, there is no stopping you from eating it without being chilled.
But… the flavors of pumpkin and cream cheese in this fall dessert are so much better when they have time to set up and chill together.
The Good News
The good news is that if you need an easy fall dessert for a family gathering, party, or potluck, you can make this easy pumpkin roll recipe well in advance and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
I think you could even freeze it and then pull out the pumpkin roll when you’re ready to eat. I haven’t tried freezing with this exact recipe, but I don’t see why there would be any problem in doing it.
The fun doesn’t stop after Halloween. This Pumpkin Roll would be perfect for Thanksgiving, too!
