Line a half sheet tray or cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lightly butter and flour the paper. Whip egg whites with powdered sugar to medium soft peaks. If using a stand mixer, remove egg foam from mixing bowl and set aside in a clean bowl. If using a hand mixer, set bowl aside. Next, whip eggs, egg yolks, sugar and vanilla on medium high until thick ribbons are formed. Sift cake flour and cocoa powder together. Fold flour into yellow egg mixture. Next, fold egg white foam into batter. Spread cake batter in an even coating onto baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for about 7 minutes. The center of the sponge cake should be set. Allow to cool slightly, then remove sponge from pan and place in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Take sponge cake out of the freezer and roll into a jelly roll shape. Place cake in fridge.
