Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Roll

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.

  4. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until the cake springs back when you touch it.
  5. Cool it in the pan for 15 minutes. Then dump the cake onto a tea towel sprinkled with powdered sugar.

    Good Morning Anne, I am popping over to visit you from Say G’Day as I was intrigued by your chocolate chip pumpkin roll. We call this type of cake a Swiss Roll here in England and I was interested to see how you used pumpkin in this recipe as I have used pumpkins in savoury cooking but never in cakes.
    I am looking forward to trying your recipe as Swiss Roll was something that both my Grandmother Ivy and my Mother, Phyllis used to make…. so as you can imagine I love Swiss Roll.
    It is lovely to meet you. Have a wonderful weekend.
    Best Wishes
