Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

Line a 15 x 10-in (40 x 25 cm) jellyroll pan with parchment paper. Whisk eggs with sugar and vanilla. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold gently into egg/sugar mixture.

Stir flour with baking powder and salt. Sift over egg mixture and fold. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Bake in middle of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.

Spread a tea towel on counter and dust evenly with icing sugar. Turn the hot cake onto the towel and remove the paper. Trim any crisp edges from cake and roll up in towel lengthwise. Let cool.

Lemon Curd:

Stir sugar with cornstarch. Whisk in lemon juice until well blended. Stir in eggs. Cook, stirring, in a double boiler until very thick, about 10 minutes. Add butter to mixture gradually, stirring constantly. Chill until set.

Unroll cooled cake. Spread cooled lemon curd over cake. Sprinkle with blueberries. Re-roll. Slice and serve.
