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.
