Pumpkin Spice Roll with Maple Bourbon Cream



Welcome to day three of PumpkinWeek! Today I am sharing a recipe with you that Grumpy insisted I make. As soon as he found out I would be making pumpkin recipes, his only comment was: “You HAVE to make a pumpkin roll!” So, to make him happy, and to be creative, I came up with a filling that has fall flavors that will also compliment the pumpkin cake!



Pumpkin Spice Cake Roll with Maple Bourbon Cream


I have always been a maple kind of girl. I grew up in an area where making maple syrup was a part of our north country life. My dad even made his own maple syrup for a while. Let me tell you, it is a lot of work and it takes a lot of sap to make that delicious golden syrup. However, it is SO worth it!

When it comes to bourbon, there are a few ingredients that work incredibly well with it and maple syrup is one of them. Have you ever just opened a bottle of bourbon just to take a whiff? I admit it, I have done it. I love everything about it, the taste, the smell and I especially love using it as an ingredient in my cooking and baking!


Pumpkin Spice Cake Roll



I probably make a pumpkin roll once a year and usually around the holidays. This year I am a little early! Sponge cakes can be tricky and you want to handle them with care!

Tips for Success in making your Pumpkin Spice Cake Roll with Maple Bourbon Cream

  • Line your jelly roll pan (12 x 17) with parchment or wax paper to assist in easy removal of the cake.
  • Make sure you have a cotton towel that is large enough for your cake to lie flat on.
  • Be generous with the confectioner’s sugar coating on your towel. If you don’t use enough, your cake may stick to the towel.
  • Use the towel as a guide when rolling the cake back up.
  • Be patient! Let it cool completely before doing any assembly. If you aren’t and you assemble too quickly, your filling will melt!

This makes a great dessert to serve over the upcoming holidays. It speaks fall and tastes amazing! There are so many other filling options that can be fall like. I am thinking a caramel apple would be amazing also! Now, go ahead, print the recipe and scroll down to be sure to enter the giveaway
