Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll

Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll from

You often see pumpkin rolls during the fall and holidays. They are one of those desserts that make a great presentation with the swirls of cream cheese rolled up inside the cake.

Pumpkin rolls always make for an impressive dessert.

A pumpkin roll was one of those things that I have been wanting to convert to gluten free for awhile, but had not gotten around to it. This year though, I was determined to give it a try, and last week I finally did it.

Over the years I have made quite a few pumpkin roll and jelly roll type cakes, but never gluten free. So, I was a little nervous about this working right. Jellyrolls and rolled cakes like this are not hard to make, but they do take a little work and can be a bit difficult when it comes to not cracking the cake when you roll it.

The gluten free version though worked perfectly. I was surprised at how well this worked. In fact, I think that the gluten free version rolled up easier, and was easier to work with, than the regular version I used to make.

I love it when a gluten free version turns out better than I expected. This cake will be a new holiday favorite for my family.

My daughter’s birthday is this week and she loves pumpkin. She often chooses something pumpkin for her birthday and this year she asked me to make this cake for her birthday cake.

That tells you how much she enjoyed this gluten free pumpkin roll. I just made it and she already wants it again for her birthday cake. And really I won’t complain because this was so good that I am glad to have a reason to make it again.

  1. You are such a blessing to our family. I forget how much we love pumpkin rolls. It’s our 12 year-old daughter’s favorite. And, it’s my favorite for Thanksgiving. Thank you sooooo much for this recipe! : )

  2. That looks yummy. Before I try making it, just want to double check: Is that 1/2 cup rice flour, or 1 1/2 cup rice flour? Also, did you use brown or white rice flour? (Sometimes it makes a difference.)


    • It is 1/2 cup rice flour. It is a pretty thin cake so it does not have much flour in it. Either would work, but I think white rice will works a little better for this. I hope you enjoy it.

  3. Have any idea how many calories??

    Thank you for a great pumpkin roll recipe. I have been very disappointed with 90% of the gf recipes I have tried. The ingredients are not cheap & I can’t afford to keep throwing stuff out to my chickens. So I thank you for one that finally lived up to my expectations.

    • Thank you for your comment! It made my day. I love sharing gluten free recipes that are easy and taste great. So I love hearing that readers love them as well!

    We have been making this recipe for years and it is AWESOME!! I haven’t had a lot of success with other recipes over the years, but this is a good recipe. I have people surprised it’s gluten free too! They never know!

    • I am so glad that you enjoy this! I love to hear that my recipes are so good that no one can tell that they are gluten free. I did not make this at Thanksgiving this year, but I need to make it before the holidays are over. It is a favorite in my family.
