Chocolate Cake Roll

For the Cake:
1/3 cup cake flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, separated
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
confectioners' sugar

For the Filling:
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Making the Cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15 x 10 inch jelly roll pan with waxed paper. Grease and flour lined pan; tap out excess. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat egg yolks and 1/4 cup sugar until fluffy. Fold 1/3 beaten egg whites into egg yolk mixture. Alternately fold in remaining whites and flour mixture. Pour batter in pan; smooth top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 15 minutes.

Rolling and Filling the Cake:
Dust a clean cloth with remaining sugar. Turn cake out onto prepared cloth; remove waxed paper. Trim the cake's edges. Starting with a long side, tightly roll up cake with cloth. Transfer cake, seam-side down, to a wire rack down, to a wire rack to cool. Unroll cake, remove cloth. Spread whipped topping over cake to within 1/2 inch of edges. Re-roll cake; place seam-side down on a plate. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
