Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line jellyroll pan with foil and spray with vegetable spray. Beat eggs at high speed until thick and lemon colored and light (about 5 minutes). Slow mixer speed and very gradually add 1 cup sugar, blending until well-dissolved. Add 1/3 cup water and vanilla and continue to mix on low speed. Add flour and baking powder very gradually until mixed. Batter will be slightly foamy. Pour into jellyroll pan and bake for about 15 minutes. Invert pan onto a kitchen towel that has been sprinkled with powdered sugar. Roll up towel, jellyroll fashion, and cool.

¾ cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
¾ cup water

Remove from heat; add lemon peel and 1 tablespoon margarine. Gradually stir in 1/3 cup lemon juice. Add a few drops of yellow food coloring, if desired. Cool mixture. Unroll jellyroll and place on large platter. Pour sauce on middle of unrolled cake roll and spread to within 1 inch of edges. Re-roll jellyroll. Refrigerate.
