Ingredients You’ll Need:

For the Carrot Cake Roll:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup pureed cooked carrots
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Powdered sugar (for dusting)

For the Cream Cheese Frosting Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation Steps:

For the Carrot Cake Roll:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line a 10×15-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs and granulated sugar until thick and pale. Add pureed carrots and vanilla extract, mixing well.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared jelly roll pan, spreading it evenly.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.
  7. While the cake is still warm, dust a clean kitchen towel with powdered sugar. Invert the cake onto the towel and peel off the parchment paper.
  8. Roll the cake, along with the towel, starting from the short side. Allow it to cool completely.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting Filling:

  1. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, softened butter, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  2. Carefully unroll the cooled cake and spread the cream cheese filling evenly over the surface.
  3. Gently re-roll the cake without the towel. Place it seam-side down on a serving platter.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before slicing.
  5. Dust with additional powdered sugar before serving if desired.
