Roll-it-up strawberry roulade recipe

for the cake:
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon orange zest
3/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs separated, plus one yolk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
for the filling:
1 pound strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon sour cream
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with butter, cover it with parchment paper, then coat the paper with butter.
2. Make the cake. In a small bowl whisk 2/3 cup of the sugar and the zest together. Add the dry ingredients and whisk until well blended. In a large bowl with a hand mixer set on high, beat together the 5 egg yolks, oil, milk, and vanilla. Combine the mixtures and beat until well blended.
3. In a large bowl with a hand mixer set on high, beat the 4 egg whites until soft peaks form, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add the remaining sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute more. Fold the egg whites into the batter, then pour it onto the prepared baking sheet. Use a spatula to spread it evenly. Bake until the top of the cake is light brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool.
4. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. In a small bowl, toss the berries, sugar, and zest.
5. In a large bowl with a hand mixer set on high, beat the remaining ingredients until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes.
6. Spread the filling onto the cake, leaving a 1-inch border. Scatter the berries on top. Beginning at the short end, roll the cake, letting the parchment fall away as you work. Place the cake seam side down on a platter and dust with confectioners' sugar.
