Butter a 15 x 10-inch (38 x 26 cm) baking pan. Line it with waxed paper, then grease and flour pan; set aside.

Beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy (about 5 to 7 min). Sieve in flour and baking powder; fold in carefully. Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 400 °F (200 °C) for 10 to 12 min or until cake is golden.

Immediately turn out onto a tea towel that has been lightly dusted with icing sugar. Carefully remove the waxed paper. Roll up cake in the tea towel and allow to cool.


Gently unroll cake; sprinkle with orange juice. Whip cream, sugar and vanilla extract until light. Divide mixture in half; spread one half on cake and sprinkle with raspberries. (If using frozen raspberries, allow to thaw and drain well.)

Re-roll cake and place onto serving plate. Spread remaining cream evenly over cake. Using tines of a fork, or a knife, work in one direction only to create the bark effect. Dust with cocoa powder or drizzle with chocolate.
