  1. Heat oven to 375 F. Line 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan with foil; generously grease foil.
  2. Beat egg yolks in large bowl on high speed of mixer 3 minutes. Gradually add 1/2 cup granulated sugar; continue beating 2 minutes. Stir together flour, cocoa, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, baking soda and salt; add alternately with water and vanilla to egg yolk mixture, beating on low speed just until smooth.
