Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Crack the eggs into a large bowl and beat at high speed for about 5 minutes. Gradually add the sugar, then stir in the pumpkin puree and lemon juice.

Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt in a separate bowl.

Fold the dry mixture into the wet mixture, then pour it into an ungreased jelly roll pan (10.5 x 15.5") or a shallow baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Bake the pumpkin mixture in the preheated oven for around 12 - 15 minutes. If the cake springs back when pressed slightly, it's ready.

Remove the pumpkin cake from the oven and leave it in the pan for about 15 minutes. Lay out a kitchen towel and dust well with powdered sugar. Turn the cake out onto the towel, roll the cake tightly in the towel, and allow it to cool completely.

While the cake is cooling, make the frosting by beating the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Pour in the vanilla and powdered sugar and beat again until combined and thick.

Unroll the cooled cake and spread the cream cheese filling across it. Roll it up and dust it with powdered sugar on top.

Refrigerate the pumpkin rolled cake or slice it and serve the pumpkin rolls to your guests.

Cooking Tips

It is important to allow the cake to completely cool before spreading the filling so that it doesn't become runny from the heat.


If your cream cheese frosting is a bit runny before spreading it, refrigerate it for 30 minutes to an hour to harden slightly. You don't want it too hard, or else it will be difficult to spread.
