Pumpkin Cake Roll – Cream Cheese Filling
Ya'll! This is my first new pumpkin recipe of the season, which is weird, because it's 85 outside as I'm writing this, I can't help but think “Whatever, it's #pumpkinspice season and I am Here. For. It.”
I've done a couple of cute pumpkin recipes in the past because I like working with the ingredient, like my Pumpkin Spice Creamer (THM:S) but I'm getting serious with this Pumpkin Cake roll with Cream Cheese Filling.
Are you ready?
I am so excited to share with you today!
I LOVE pumpkin season, and having a 3-almost-4 year old to share the excitement with makes us almost like giddy schoolgirls together. The hubby doesn't share my enthusiasm for all things fall, winter, and the holidays, but my little blonde sidekick sure does!
I try not to jump into fall recipes too early, but the leaves around here are turning and it just feels like it's time. It is after labor day, after all, which means I can't wear white, but I CAN start putting pumpkin in everything.

Let's get our #PumpkinSpice on!
- For the Cake:
- 2 cups Almond Flour
- ¾ cup Coconut Flour
- ½ cup Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1 T Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Ginger
- ¼ tsp Cloves
- ¼ tsp Allspice
- 1½ cup Pureed Pumpkin
- 4 Eggs
- ½ cup Melted Butter
- ½ cup Milk or Almond Milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- For the Filling
- 16 oz Cream Cheese, Softened
- ½ cup Truvia
- Preheat your oven to 325 and line your jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Using your largest KitchenAid bowl (or a large bowl if mixing by hand) combine the dry ingredients: Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Protein Powder, Baking Powder, Cinnamon, Salt, Ginger, Cloves, Allspice. Mix well.
- Add the Pureed Pumpkin, Eggs, melted Butter, Milk and Vanilla Extra to the dry ingredients and mix well. The batter should be easy to spread but not runny. It it's runny, add ¼ cup more almond flour and mix well. If it is thick, add ¼ cup milk and mix well.
- Spread the batter evenly in the jelly roll pan (lined with parchment paper) and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cake is set and cooked through.
- Remove from the oven and let sit for about 7 minutes, or until the cake is still warm but not cooled.
- While the cake is cooling, mix up the filling:
- Warm the cream cheese up so it spreads very easily, then thoroughly combine it with the truvia.
- Using the parchment paper, remove the pumpkin cake from the pan and set it on the counter. Spread the warm filling evenly over it, then start rolling the cake from one end. Pull the parchment paper off of the cake as you roll so that non is trapped inside the roll.
- Refrigerate the cake roll (covered) for 3-4 hours, or until it's fully cooled and set up, then slice and enjoy!

Can you provide the nutrional numbers for the pumpkin cake roll, Please.
Pam Owens says
Can you substitute something else for the coconut flour? I am allergic to coconut.
How do you purée pumpkin? I love the old fashion pumpkin roll recipe but it uses pumpkin pie filling.
A newbie to all this.
You can buy canned pumpkin puree from the store. Just check the ingredients for pure pumpkin and nothing else. My favorite brand is Trader Joe’s if there is one near you.
can I substitute honey or coconut sugar for the truvia? and could I sub applesauce, avocado, coconut oil, or add more pumpkin to reaplace the butter?
I’m starting to make this recipe & was wondering if the butter is salted or unsalted?
I noticed that there is no sweetener in the cake itself. Is this correct or was it omitted in error?
Gretchen Lindow says
That’s correct! The filling is pretty sweet, so I left the cake unsweetened. If you prefer a slightly sweet taste in the cake, you could add a few drops of liquid stevia.
Ugg I must have done something horribly wrong because this turned out dry and crumbling with an overwhelming stevia aftertaste. Please advise
