Join Hipcooks as we make this showstopper holiday cake, the Pumpkin Pecan Roll. It is beautiful enough for a table centerpiece, easy enough to prepare anytime (and lots of times!) This dessert is perfect after a holiday meal with all the trimmings because it is super-light and airy. You and your family will have a new holiday tradition!
We love the Pumpkin Pecan Roll as an any-occasion cake. It’s perfect for teatime and healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast! This cake is just sweet enough and made without flour (or gluten). You can also use to make it dairy-free by using coconut whipped cream in the center.
Get ready for our Pumpkin Roll Class. You’ll need:
Please pre-measure /prepare your ingredients:
7 eggs, separated (whites in one bowl, yolks in another)
¾ cup sugar
1½ cup of almond flour (you can find this at Trader Joe’s, or look for Bob’s Red Mill at grocery stores)
⅓ cup (or so) roughly chopped pecans (you can substitute walnuts, hazelnuts, or leave them out entirely)
an 8-oz package cream cheese, left a room temperature until soft
Have on hand:
roughly half a can of pureed pumpkin
pumpkin pie spice, or your choice of some or all: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove
roughly 6 ounces chocolate or about a cup of dark chocolate chips (if you’d like to decorate with us!)
½ a pint of heavy whipping cream
vanilla bean paste or vanilla
whiskey, cognac, Grand Marnier, or your favorite booze
baking sheet lined with an Exopat or parchment paper, plus 2 more sheets of parchment paper
your oven preheated to 350°F
you’ll need a stand mixer or eggbeaters, bowls and spatulas
we’ll make a hacked double-boiler in class, which requires a small pot and a heatproof bowl that fits snuggly in the rim of the pot
we’ll make our decorations with your choice: a spoon, a plastic bag, or a piping bag with a small round tip — all will produce great (and fancy!) results.
