Pumpkin Roll filled with cream cheese is a traditional holiday recipe, and it is even better when you add chocolate chips to make it more decadent!
Pumpkin and cream cheese combine in this cake to make a delicious combination of flavors. Cake rolls can seem intimidating, but they really are not hard to make, and if the roll cracks a little it doesn’t matter, because they still look and taste amazing! I stirred mini chocolate chips into the cake batter before I cooked it, so that the chocolate and pumpkin flavors melded together.
- 3 eggs
- ⅔ c. pumpkin puree
- 1 c. sugar
- ¾ c. flour
- 1 t. baking powder
- ½ t salt
- 1 t. cinnamon
- ½ c. mini chocolate chips
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 2 T butter
- Preheat oven to 350. Line a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan or rimmed cookie sheet with waxed paper.
- To make the cake combine the eggs and sugar and beat until light and creamy. Then mix in the pumpkin.
- Add all the dry ingredients and mix until batter is just combined.
- Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until the cake springs back when you touch it.
- Cool it in the pan for 15 minutes. Then dump the cake onto a tea towel sprinkled with powdered sugar.
- Peel off the waxed paper and let the cake rest for 5 minutes. Then gently roll it up in the tea towel and let it cool for a few hours.
- To make the filling combine the powdered sugar, cream cheese and butter and beat until smooth.
- Gently unroll the cake and spread it with the filling. Then reroll and refrigerate. It will cut better if you refrigerate it for a few hours.
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar and chocolate chips and cut into slices to serve.
