Joan, a guest to "Diana's Desserts" website gave me this recipe for Strawberry Log Cake. Joan is making this beautiful dessert to bring to a friend's house for the 4TH Of July Holiday. I thought that it looked so good, I would make it myself for Independence Day. So here is the recipe, a delightful "Genoise" (sponge cake), filled with strawberries, whipped cream and lemon curd. Try this recipe, your friends and family will love it.................Diana

For Cake:
4 large egg yolks
2 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons warm water
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar

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

Powdered sugar
1 pint basket (about 3 1/4 cups) strawberries, optional

To Make Cake:
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line 18x12-inch jellyroll sheet pan with aluminum foil and 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.

When ready to serve, 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.
