Is it Pumpkin season yet? Well, maybe not yet, but, I am sooo looing forward to it, that I could not help myself, I had to start my everything pumpkin baking already.

It might still be summer, although over here in the UK we are finally getting some well-deserved rain now, after a scortching summer that make us all appreciate these rainy days better.

And since it’s cooled down quite a lot, there is nothing stopping us from thinking of pumpkins, harvest, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and all Fall fun. Yes, summer is fun, but, just think about it, lots and lots of yummy pumpkin treat winking at you from everywhere.

That for me it’s more than enough to look forward to these happy days. And my pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling is the best start to my crazy Fall baking. It has the perfect blend of pumpkin spice that goes so well with the delicate texture of the maple cream cheese filling.

I have used this yummy filling before with my Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple Cream Filling and I fell in love with it. And what’s great about it is that you can use as much or as little sugar as you like, the cream cheese makes it naturally sweet anyway, so I find there no need for much refined sugar at all.

THE PERFECT PUMPKIN ROLL WITH CREAM CHEESE FILLING

If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice blend, you can actually make it at home yourself, just play with the amount of cinnamon, cloves, all spice, ginger and nutmeg you like to use, and make your own very special blend of perfect spice that can be used in lots of pumpkin recipes.

And, if you don’t have fresh pumpkin just as yet, and can’t get the canned one, the pumpkin can be easily replaced with sweet potatoes, or even butternut squash. The taste and texture can be similar, and it gives you more choice when it comes to creative dessert ideas.

The sponge is super easy to make, and it comes out of the oven in about 15 minutes or less. It’s light, super yummy, and it has the perfect texture to be rolled without breaking easily.

Not to mention the cream cheese filling, which is literally ready in 2 minutes. It’s just a matter of mixing the ingredients, and ta-daaah, an awesome cream filling to knock your socks off.

ONE TIP HERE – do let the sponge cool down before adding the cream cheese filling to it, otherwise you will end up with a big mess, and the roll is look rather bad. Patience really is a virtue when it comes to baking!!!
