Cake:
4 large egg yolks
2 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons warm water
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar

Strawberry Filling:
l cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons prepared lemon curd, at room temperature*
about 3 1/4 cups strawberries, stemmed and coarsely chopped

Garnish:(optional. Can be replace by coating with strawberry cream too)
Powdered sugar
3 1/4 cups strawberries

To make Cake:
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line 18 by 12 inch jelly roll sheet pan with aluminum foil; coat with vegetable cooking spray.
In large mixer bowl beat yolks and eggs at high speed about 5 minutes until thick and lemon-colored. Continuing at high speed, gradually beat in granulated sugar until mixture is pale and thick. Gently fold in dry ingredients except powdered sugar to blend thoroughly. Fold in water, oil and vanilla. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake in center of oven about 10 minutes until springy to the touch.
Meanwhile, coat a clean dishtowel with powdered sugar. Invert hot cake onto towel close to one long edge. Gently peel off foil. Trim 1/2 inch off each short side of cake. Starting from long side, tightly roll cake and towel. Set on rack to cool completely.

To make Strawberry Filling:
In mixer bowl whip cream to form soft peaks. Beat in sugar to form stiff peaks. Fold in lemon curd to blend thoroughly. Mix in chopped strawberries. Gently unroll cake. Spread strawberry mixture evenly on cake and re-roll. Place seam-side-down. Dust with powdered sugar. Cut into 8 (about 1 3/4-inch) equal slices. Place each slice on serving plate. Garnish with whole and halved strawberries.

* Lemon curd can be found in the jam and jelly or gourmet section of most supermarkets.

Looks like you got psyched by the long list of ingredients. If you go thru them carefully you will find most of them in your kitchen. Also all you are doing is baking a flat cake and putting the filling on the top and rolling it. It takes the same time as any other cake as we have tried it. All our recipes are tried and tested.

It looks so good but it seems like it would be hard to make. I can imagine it ending in disaster for me hahaha.

If this recipe is too big for you you can bake an sponge cake and frost it with strawberry cream between layers or just on the top. It will take the same. YOu can find some easier recipes. Try them to start with. All the best.
