Pre heat the oven to 180C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on it evenly.
Heat some water in a saucepan. Take it off the heat as soon as the water comes to a boil.
Combine eggs and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Place it on the pan with hot water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.
Beat the eggs and sugar, till thick and pale. The mixture should leave a trail when you lift the beaters. This should take about 8-10 minutes.
Take the bowl off the hot water pan. Fold in the flour very very gently, taking care that the eggs don't get deflated.
Gently pour the cake mixture onto the prepared tray and spread the batter evenly.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the sponge is light golden and firm to touch.
Keep a damp kitchen towel on the counter and a piece of aluminium foil or baking paper, bigger in size than the cake on top of it. Lightly sprinkle some powdered sugar on it.
Once you take the cake out of the oven, wait for 2-3 minutes and gently turn it over on the prepared foil or baking paper. Peel the paper off the sponge base.
Roll the sponge, starting from the short end along with the prepared foil or baking paper. Cover with the damp tea towel and let the cake cool.
Pour the chilled cream into the chilled bowl.
Mix in the icing sugar and beat the mixture for 8-10 minutes with your electric beater until soft peaks form.
Once the cake has cooled, unroll it. Discard the foil/ baking paper. Spread the whipped cream evenly, leaving about 1/2" along the border. Scatter the strawberries on top and roll the cake up tightly. Dust the cake with icing sugar and serve immediately or refrigerate till ready to serve. Enjoy!
