Baked Alaska


Baked Alaska is Honey-Bunny’s favourite. Miss S likes this a lot too. So does He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers.

Sponge Cake. Buy a double packet from the supermarket, then you can have Baked Alaska twice.

Jam, any flavour. Again, just buy the jam from the supermarket. Raspberry is nice.

Ice cream. Any flavour. You know where to get ice cream from.

Two egg whites.

1/2 Cup white sugar

Scoop the insides out of the cake to make a shell, then spread jam around the cake. Pile the shell up with ice cream then put it in the freezer while you make the meringue.

Turn the oven on to as hot as it will go.

Beat the egg whites, then pour in the sugar bit by bit until the mixture is thick and shiny. Place the sponge onto a baking tray using baking paper, then spread the mixture all over the ice cream and sponge, including down the sides.

Bake In the oven for about four minutes, until the meringue starts to brown. Watch the Baked Alaska with an eagle eye, because if you leave it for too long the ice cream will melt all over the baking tray. Serve straight away.
