  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the figs in a roasting tin, drizzle over the honey and sprinkle over the cardamom seeds. Bake for 10 mins. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the figs to a bowl, then stir the lemon juice into the syrup in the tin to taste and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the cream to stiff peaks. Fold through the yogurt, half the orange zest and half the fig syrup.
  3. To assemble, put a meringue pavlova on a serving plate. Top with half the cream, then repeat with the remaining meringue and cream. Arrange the figs on top, then scatter over the hazelnuts, remaining orange zest and the pomegranate seeds. Drizzle with the remaining syrup to serve.
