How to Make a Pumpkin Cake Roll
Making a roulade cake can look intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! This recipe is made with an easy pumpkin sponge cake recipe. I used my classic ‘Vanilla Sponge Cake’ recipe and added pumpkin puree and pumpkin spices right into the cake batter. When making this sponge cake, make sure to whisk the eggs until they’re light and fluffy. Also, fold in the flour and the pumpkin very gently but thoroughly, keeping the batter fluffy.
The trick to rolling your sponge cake perfectly is doing it as soon as you take it out of the oven. Just sprinkle a clean kitchen or tea towel with confectioner’s sugar, then invert the hot sponge cake, then roll right up. Allow the cake to cool completely, then unroll it, fill it and roll it back up the same way. And voila, you have a perfect roulade!
Once the cake is completely cooled, it’s time to prepare the creamy cream cheese filling! It’s made with cream cheese, sour cream, heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk! First, beat together the cheese and butter until it’s smooth and creamy. Next, add in the heavy cream and condensed milk and whisk until fluffy peaks form. I love to use this filling as a frosting, too! You can check out my in-depth tutorial for this recipe here: ‘Whipped Cream Frosting’.
Garnish the cake with ground cinnamon and my homemade ‘Caramel Sauce’! You’ll love this easy caramel sauce with everything!
