Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Liberally spray a 10x15" jelly roll pan with non-stick baking spray, line with parchment paper and set aside.
Beat the egg whites on medium speed in the bowl of your mixer until they hold soft peaks. Next add 1/3 cup of the granulated sugar in a slow, steady stream, then increase the speed to medium-high and continue to beat until the whites hold medium-firm peaks.
Set the stiff egg whites aside.
In a large bowl, using the mixer with the whisk attachment, beat together the egg yolks, vanilla, and the remaining 1/3 cup sugar on high speed until thick and pale, about 5 minutes with a standing mixer.
On low speed, mix in the flour and salt just until combined.
Fold the stiff egg whites into the egg yolk mixture until well combined and smooth.
Immediately pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.
Bake until the top feels dry and springs back when you press it lightly with your finger near the center, about 8 minutes. It should remain pale.
Transfer the pan to a wire rack, cover with a tea towel, and let cool for 5-7 minutes.
Then run a thin knife around the inside edge of the pan to loosen the cake sides.
Lightly sprinkle the top of the cake with confectioners’ sugar, re-cover the cake with a towel, and invert onto a baking sheet.
Once the cake is removed from the jelly roll pan, remove the parchment paper.
Starting at the long side closest to you, begin to roll the cake while still warm with the towel until completely rolled into the cake roll shape. Leave until cool.
