Dairy & Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll

Finally, I managed (with the help of my Mamma) to make a gluten free pumpkin roll that actually hold together, doesn’t crumble apart and start breaking as you try to roll it and MOST importantly, that is super delicious!!

In Italy, we use the name “Pan di Spagna” (Spanish bread) to define a sponge cake, and while I am not sure why bread or Spain have anything to do with sponge cake, one thing I can tell you for sure: IT’S CRAZY HARD to make this gluten free!!

After quite a few attempts at making a good sponge cake using different gluten free flours, we figured out the perfect baking mix to recreate this glorious dessert! And I am pretty sure that what really made a difference this time is the addition of potato starch.

As you might now, I mostly try to avoid nightshade vegetables (white potatoes, bell peppers, tomatoes and eggplants) as they used to give me trouble. Lately though, I tried to rintroduce potatoes and potato starch in moderation and I do good with it. And I am glad I do because it’s great for baking!!



For those of you who can’t tolerate potato products, you can try to replace it in this gluten free pumpkin roll with some sweet potato starch instead.

What I love about this gluten free pumpkin cake is that it’s really versatile, and while it could be a perfect Thanksgiving dessert, it can also be baked for other occasions, even summery ones, as it served chilled!
