cream cheese frosting filling

  • 1 stick cream cheese 8 oz, softened
  • 4 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 c powdered sugar sifted
  • pinch of salt
  • splash of vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 400
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the eggs on high for 3-5 minutes, until they have thickened and are fluffy
  • Mix in the white sugar, stir for a minute
  • Mix in the pumpkin puree and splash of vanilla
  • In a separate bowl sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon
  • Add this to the mixer, on low speed, until just combined
  • Spray a 10x15 inch pan with nonstick spray, cover with a layer of parchment paper
  • Spread the batter evenly over the parchment paper, to all sides (if your pan is bigger than 10x15 only spread it out to those measurements)
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes, poke it and it should bounce back
  • Whip together the cream cheese frosting filling; cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, pinch of salt and vanilla until smooth and silky
  • Lay flat a clean kitchen towel, dust with powdered sugar
  • Remove the cake from the oven and quickly flip on to the towel, face down (so the parchment paper side is face up)
  • Gently remove the parchment paper and sprinkle with a littler more powdered sugar
  • Roll the cake up and let it sit for 1 hour until cool
  • Unroll and spread with the cream cheese frosting
  • Roll back up, slice and serve!
