This delightful and elegant Pumpkin Orange Cake Roll has an angel food cake as a base and is filled with a cinnamon-orange scented pumpkin filling. A lighter alternative to heavy holiday desserts.


  • 1 package (16 oz.) angel food cake mix
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons grated orange peel, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 tablespoons CROSSE & BLACKWELL Red Currant Jelly, optional


PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Line a 15x10-inch jelly-roll pan with foil. Foil should extend 1 inch above edge of pan. Sprinkle a clean towel with powdered sugar.

PREPARE cake mix according to package direction, adding 1 ½ teaspoons orange peel at end of mixing time. Spread into prepared pan.

BAKE for 30 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. Immediately turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off foil. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.

COMBINE pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and remaining orange peel in a medium bowl. Carefully unroll cake; spread pumpkin mixture over cake. Re-roll cake. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Spoon jelly into small, heavy-duty plastic bag. Cut off corner of bag; squeeze to drizzle jelly over cake. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Pumpkin Cake Roll

A simple but scrumptious recipe and so easy to make. The pumpkin filling with orange flavor was delicious. However, I did modify it by adding one cup of cool whip to the filling for a creamier taste. This recipe is a keeper!

Nice take on an old favorite

Pumpkin & Orange Combo?

by L. L , ANCHORAGE, AK on Jan. 2008

I never thought orange would complement pumpkin, but it appears to work well. I will try it with pumpkin and apple next, with even less sugar than the recipe calls for.

so good

I really enjoyed the orange with the pumpkin cake roll. The plain pumpkin is great also, but this is a nice change. Very good.
