Pumpkin Roll Recipe

This pumpkin roll recipe is our family's favorite dessert. It freezes well and is quick to prepare and therefore perfect on days when you get unexpected guests. We always have pumpkin roll stacked away in the freezer for those unexpected moments. The pumpkin roll can be freezed for up to 3 months.

Pumpkin roll is a traditional dessert, most commonly served in the fall and winter months. A cream cheese filling. The pumpkin cake is spread with filling and then rolled into a cylinder, similar to the way cinnamon rolls would be made. When you look at it from the side, you will see a beautiful swirl of pumpkin and cream cheese.

Besides looking good, pumpkin roll is loved by children and a good way to get them to eat their veggies. We are happy you are here and that we have the opportunity to show you how to make pumpkin roll. You will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make a pumpkin roll.
