Ingredients for pumpkin roll.
- 3 big eggs
- 120 g light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of soda
- 250 g pumpkin puree
- 110 g all-purpose flour
- a pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of gingerbread spice

How to make pumpkin roll.
Put eggs, a pinch of salt and brown sugar into a bowl. Whisk for 5-6 minutes, until the mixture becomes fluffy and almost white. Then, in small batches, add the pumpkin puree. Finally, mix in the flour combined with the baking powder, soda and gingerbread spice. Line a rectangular baking tin with baking paper, pour in the cake batter and spread it evenly. Place the tin in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes. Take out the cake from the oven, let it slightly cool down, but not completely. Place a kitchen towel on the still lukewarm cake and roll it up along the shorter side. Set aside to let it cool completely.
Put cold whipping cream, caster sugar and vanilla extract into a bowl. Whisk until stiff, then add the cream cheese. Whisk together for a few seconds until the ingredients come together.
Unroll the roll, spread the cream cheese mixture evenly, leaving about 1 centimetre along the edges uncovered. Carefully roll up the cake. Chill the roll in the fridge for at least one hour. Before serving, sprinkle with caster sugar.
Good to know when making pumpkin roll.
All the ingredients used for preparing the pumpkin cake should be at room temperature.
I used a metal baking tin measuring 25 by 37 centimetres.
Depending on the type of oven you have, it is worth checking after 20 minutes whether the cake is already baked. The top of the cake should be completely dry.
