Pecan pie is a big deal in my family. It is the one dessert that cannot be skipped at Thanksgiving. No matter how many new things we want to try a pecan pie will be on the menu. Sometimes that means we have 3 or 4 desserts for 6 adults. We’re up to the challenge though! Anyways, as I’ve been cruising Pinterest looking at all of the pumpkin rolls and pecan pies I started wondering if I could make a pecan pie cake roll. Spoiler alert: The answer is yes!

I’ve made a lot of pumpkin rolls but this was my first time trying a pecan pie roll. No matter what the flavor is a good cake roll starts with a good sponge cake. The first step is whipping the eggs. The fluffiness of the eggs help give it the springiness it needs to be able to roll it up. Next you mix together your flour, baking powder, and salt. I always use Bob’s Red Mill Organic Unbleached White Flour. It is freshly milled from Organic hard red wheat and it’s not enriched with any additives. This is the same high protein flour used by professional bakers and produces high, well-textured loaves of bread equally as well as it produces light, airy baked goods. It’s perfect for all of your baking needs! Gently fold the dry ingredients into the whipped eggs. Don’t over mix, fold the ingredients together instead of stirring so you don’t deflate the eggs.

Once everything is combined pour the mixture into a greased

Halfway through baking sprinkle chopped pecans on top of the cake and let it finish baking. You’ll know the cake is done when you press in the middle and it springs back slightly.

Now the fun part. Once the cake is baked let it cool for 5 minutes then flip it out of the pan on to a clean kitchen towel that is sprinkled with confectioner’s sugar. Peel off the parchment paper and then beginning at one end gently roll the cake up. Once it is rolled all the way up leave the cake like that until it cools completely.

While the cake cools you’ll make the pecan pie filling. It is really simple, just mix together all of the ingredients, pour them in a pie dish, and bake for 40-50 minutes. You’ll want to stir it every 10 minutes so it doesn’t form a crust on top. You’ll know it is ready when it has thickened up. Take it out of the oven, give it a good stir and let it cool for 10 minutes. Then it’s time to fill that cake roll. Unroll the cake and spread the pecan pie filling on it then, without the towel this time, roll the cake back up.

I brought a piece to my mom for her to taste test since I used her pecan pie filling recipe and it got two thumbs up. I’m excited to bring it to Thanksgiving dinner this year! If you want to try it you can start by downloading a coupon for Bob’s Red Mill Flour HERE.
