This vegan pumpkin roll is the perfect fall dessert. It's delicate, soft and pretty much easy to make! This beauty is made of a pumpkin sheet cake filled with the fluffiest coconut whipped cream EVER.
If this is the first roll cake you bake, I recommend you read the entire article. It's an easy recipe but you have to follow every single step to nail it!
2 important ingredients: pumpkin puree and aquafaba
The pumpkin sheet cake is made of pumpkin puree, aquafaba, white flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Regarding the pumpkin puree: if you have 1 hour of time and a ripe pumpkin ready to use you can make it yourself, click here to see how. If not, you can get store-bought pumpkin puree 🙂
If you are wondering what aquafaba is, here is a brief explanation: it's the liquid you find in a can of chickpeas. We use it here to replace egg whites because it whips and creates a foam (just like egg-whites do!).
How to make the pumpkin sheet cake
The pumpkin sheet cake is very simple to prepare. Use a mixer and beat aquafaba until it starts to get foamy. Add in sugar and continue to mix until it becomes very fluffy and forms stiff peaks.
Start adding the previously sifted flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Mix slowly using a spatula until you get a lump-free mass. Then add the pumpkin puree and mix gently until well incorporated.
With the help of a spatula spread the dough and give it the shape of a rectangle about 30 X 35 cm with a thickness of 0.5 cm. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (360 F) and bake the sheet cake for about 10-15 minutes.
After 10 min stick a toothpick into the center of the sheet cake. If there is wet batter still on the toothpick, it needs little more time in the oven.
