Transfer  the mixture to a 13×18 cookie sheet tray that has been lined with  parchment paper and spread the batter out evenly using an offset  spatula.

Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes and the invert the cake onto a large clean kitchen towel that’s been dusted with ¼ cup of cocoa powder. Be sure to remove the parchment paper.

Roll the cake up in the towel and let it completely cool to room temperature, which takes about 2 to 2 ½ hours.
