Pumpkin Rolls

By Kitty Keefer PumpkinRoll


My Tupperware Lady shared this recipe with me 25 years ago. It's been a holiday dessert ever since. Don't be afraid of rolling the cake up in the towel. It's easy and worth it! Cut them into thinner slices and spiral them on a round platter. Great presentation and wonderful food gift, plate and all.

    Hi Kitty,I tried to make a chocolate cappuccino jelly roll once,total disaster!Even though I followed the directions to the "T".I must be doing something wrong or not understanding something.So,I need to know..on step #5:You say to transfer cake to the tea towel.Do I transfer w/the waxed paper still on? Once transfered, do I cover with another pc. of greased waxed paper,or just roll up into the towel? I think on the other cake I tried to make,they said no waxed paper anywhere and It fell apart.Please let me know.I'm dying to make this recipe.It sounds great! Thanks,Robin

    Good Morning Robin, Thanks for catching my 2:00 a.m. blunder. I edited step #5. This recipe really is a crowd pleaser and friends and family will request it every holiday. Too bad the chocolate cappuccino jelly roll didn't work. It sounded wonderful.

    #5 While still warm, flip cake onto powdered sugar coated tea towel. Tear off wax paper. Dust top of cake with a little powdered sugar, too. Roll up in tea towel to make one long roll. When cool, unroll and spread the cream cheese filling. Refrigerate before cutting.
    Thanks, Kitty

    I make these with and sometimes substitute the pumpkin with bananas. They're wonderful. I'll tell you what really makes this pumpkin roll wonderful....substitute the vanilla with butter flavored extract...very good! These also freeze very well and sometimes I serve them frozen for a nice cool treat in the summer.
