Libby’s Pumpkin Roll is a classic fall favorite! Nothing can compare to a pumpkin cake full of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, rolled up with a delicious cream cheese filling.

This is a classic dessert for the holidays, easier than you think. This simple dessert is filled with pineapple cream cheese frosting and is perfect for your next fall party (as well as our pumpkin pie and pumpkin pie).

Autumn staple food

One of the best things about autumn is all the pumpkin recipes! Who agrees? Not only do they taste great, but they only make your house smell good. One of the most classic pumpkin recipes is pumpkin rolls, also known as Libby pumpkin rolls.

I remember my mom made them all the time when I was growing up, and this is the recipe she used. She will add nuts in it, I actually prefer that, but even without nuts, it is an unparalleled dessert!

I may be biased, but I think pumpkin rolls should be the staple food of every house in the fall. They look fancy, but they are actually very easy to make. I have some tips for you today so that your pumpkin rolls will be perfect.

Tips for the perfect pumpkin roll

parchment. This is one of the recipes that parchment paper is not optional. The cake must be baked correctly and taken out of the pan smoothly. Believe me!

cake. Make sure to bake the cake long enough so that the center is completely set. If it is not cooked, the center will be sticky and it is almost impossible to roll!

rag. Once your cake is baked, pour it on a (clean!) dish towel that has been heavily coated with powdered sugar. While the cake is still hot, roll it in a towel and let it cool. (Note: I actually rolled mine very tightly. You can roll it much looser than in the photo.)

filling. We like to add crushed pineapple to the filling-it adds such a wonderful flavor! ! But this is completely optional. Just make sure that if you include it, you really drain the pineapple well.

slice. Cutting the roll from the frozen state can make some beautiful clean slices. Even if you put it in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes, this helps it to be sliced ​​more easily. Place the slices on a plate and allow to thaw.

Storage tips + tricks

The whole volume. Wrap the roll tightly with plastic wrap, and then wrap it with foil. Store in the refrigerator for 4-5 days or in the refrigerator for one month.

Individual slices. If the pumpkin roll cakes are already sliced, you can store them in an airtight container with a few sheets of parchment paper in between to keep them separate.

If you have never made a cake roll before, I hope you can give it a try. This is truly an impressive dessert that anyone can master. It is always very popular!

Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting

As mentioned above, we like to add some drained pineapple to the cream cheese frosting. It adds a perfect sweetness, making this pumpkin roll absolutely irresistible.

Don’t like pineapple? Don’t worry-just put it aside. If you want to give it more autumn flavor, we recommend trying our cinnamon cream cheese frosting (we use our pumpkin cupcakes).

Please also note that you can make any frosting Advance time (Up to 48 hours). Just store it in an airtight container and put it in the refrigerator until you use it for pumpkin rolls.
