How to Make Heavenly Carrot Cake Roll with Cream Cheese Filling:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line a 15 x 10 inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper, leaving a little overhang on each side.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and granulated sugar until well combined. Add the vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and shredded carrots. Mix again until fully incorporated.
  4. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared jelly roll pan, spreading it into an even layer.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes or until the cake is set and lightly golden.
  7. Remove the cake from the pan using the parchment paper overhang. Transfer it to a large wood cutting board.
  8. Carefully roll the cake lengthwise, using the parchment paper to guide you. Allow the rolled cake to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  9. In a medium bowl, whisk together the confectioners sugar, softened cream cheese, softened butter, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  10. Gently unroll the cooled cake and spread the cream cheese filling evenly over the surface, leaving a small gap around the edges.
  11. Carefully roll the cake back up, starting from one end. Wrap it tightly with plastic cling wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.
  12. When ready to serve, prepare the glaze by whisking together the confectioners sugar, vanilla extract, and milk until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the chilled cake and slice into heavenly pieces of pure delight.

Master this recipe like a Pro/Expert with these helpful Tips: 🎓💡

KM’Tips :

  • Be sure to finely shred the carrots to ensure they blend well into the cake batter and create a moist texture.
  • Gently roll the cake while it is still warm to prevent cracking. Use a kitchen towel or parchment paper to assist in rolling.
  • Allow the cake to cool completely before adding the cream cheese filling. This will prevent the filling from melting or becoming runny.
  • For easier spreading, make sure the cream cheese and butter are softened at room temperature before mixing them together.
  • Refrigerate the filled cake for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld and the filling to set.
  • To make the glaze drizzle more smoothly, you can warm it slightly in the microwave or on the stovetop. Be careful not to overheat it.
  • For an added touch, you can garnish the carrot cake roll with chopped nuts, grated carrots, or a dusting of powdered sugar before serving.

Substitutions and Variations:

  • For an extra burst of flavor, add a handful of chopped walnuts or raisins to the cake batter before baking.
  • To ensure easy rolling, gently score the cake with a knife about 1/2 inch from the edge before spreading the cream cheese filling.
  • Dust the rolled cake with a sprinkle of powdered sugar for an elegant finishing touch before serving.

Make a Healthier Version:

  • For a nut-free version, omit the walnuts and replace them with shredded coconut or crushed pineapple for added texture.
    Experiment with different spices such as cardamom or allspice to customize the flavor profile of your carrot cake roll.
    Serve the cake with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a decadent twist.
  • Substitute whole wheat flour or almond flour for a portion of the all-purpose flour to increase the fiber content.
    Reduce the amount of sugar in the cake batter and filling, or replace it with natural sweeteners like maple syrup or honey.
    Opt for low-fat cream cheese and butter alternatives to reduce the overall fat content of the filling.
