Heat the oven to 180C, and line 2x23cm cake pans. Whip the egg yolks with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the zest and fold in the almond meal. Whip the egg whites and fold into the cake batter. Divide evenly into the prepared cake tins and bake for 20-25mins until golden and the centre of the cake springs back to the touch. Remove and allow to cool. Combine the mascarpone, yoghurt, vanilla and condensed milk then fold into the whipped cream. Combine the blueberry jam and the frozen blueberries together and set aside.
