Preheat oven to 320ºF. (160ºC)
Place the flour, baking powder, sugar, lemon rind and butter in the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
With the motor running, add the egg yolks and process until well combined.
Press into the base of a 9x9 square cake pan lined with parchment and bake for 20--25 minutes or until light golden and firm to the touch.
Place the mascarpone, sugar, egg, flour, lemon rind and vanilla in a bowl and mix until just smooth.
Pour onto the base and bake for 30--35 minutes or until the edges are golden and the middle is just set.
Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set, before serving.
