Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It has a crisp crust and soft, light inside, usually topped with fruit and whipped cream.

10 oz thickened cream
1 tablespoon pure icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
9 oz tub mascarpone
Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a round oven tray with baking paper. Draw a 9-inch circle on paper.
In a large, clean bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
Gradually add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating until sugar dissolves and foam is stiff, thick, and glossy. Beat in lemon juice and vanilla extract.
