Ingredients
  Cocoa 1 Tablespoon
  Eggs 5 , separated (At Room Temperature)
  Confectioners sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt 1 Dash
  Mocha cream filling 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed)
  Semisweet chocolate icing 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 15 1/2 by 10 1/2 jelly-roll pan; line bottom of pan with waxed paper; grease paper. Dust greased waxed paper with cocoa.
2. In large bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Beating at high speed, gradually sprinkle in 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition until whites stand in stiff peaks.
3. In small bowl, with same beaters and with mixer at high speed, beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Reduce speed to low; beat in salt, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, and 3 tablespoons cocoa, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula. With rubber spatula or wire whisk, gently fold egg-yolk mixture into beaten egg whites until blended. Spread batter evenly in jelly-roll pan and bake 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when lightly touched with finger.
4. Sprinkle clean cloth towel with cocoa. When cake is done, with small spatula, immediately loosen edges from sides of pan; invert cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel waxed paper from cake; discard waxed paper. If you like, with knife, cut off crisp edges. Starting from a narrow end, roll cake with towel, jelly-roll fashion. Cool rolled cake completely, seam side down, on wire rack. Meanwhile, prepare Mocha-Cream Filling.
5. Unroll cooled cake; spread evenly with Mocha-Cream Filling almost to edges. Starting from same narrow end, roll cake without towel. Place rolled cake, seam side down, on long platter.
6. Prepare Semisweet-Chocolate Icing. Spread icing over top and down sides of roll. Refrigerate cake.
