  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 10x15 inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and pale yellow. Fold in flour mixture. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat 4 egg whites until foamy. Gradually add white sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. beat in vanilla. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly tapped. Turn cake out onto a towel dusted with confectioners' sugar, and roll up until cool.
  4. To Make Frosting: In a small saucepan, stir together brown sugar and water. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar spins a thread when dropped from a spoon. In a large bowl, beat together remaining 2 egg whites until foamy. Slowly pour brown sugar liquid into egg whites while beating. Beat until frosting forms stiff peaks. Unroll cake and apply frosting in an even layer. Roll cake back up and refrigerate.

I love roll cakes, and I was looking for a new recipe to try. I was having my father-in-law over for dinner, and he loves chocolate, so I thought this recipe sounded perfect. I followed the directions but it came out horrible- the "cake" completely fell apart when it came out of the pan. The frosting was easy to make, so I had all of this frosting and cake crumbs. So my husband just mixed it all together and was going to eat it anyway. But it ended up tasting pretty bad. The cake was a very weird consistency, and the frosting just tasted like gooey brown sugar. Sorry to be negative, but this cake sadly did not turn out...

This is the worst roll cake I've ever made, from the consistency to the taste. There must be something wrong with the ingredients list. So disappointing. You're left with a bland mess of crumbs. Never again!

Absolutely horrible, I spent several hours on these thinking I did something wrong, then I read the reviews. Was very disappointed, now I don't make anything without reading what other people had to say first!!

I never even made it to oven. After mixing dry with egg yolks, it was dry-dry -dry, tried to add alittle water to get a paste, but then it was lumpy and could not get lumps out, still tried to add whites but it was not happening!!!! I was in a hurry and did not read reviews, the reciepe sounded good and doable. NOT~no stars
