Baked Alaska




This is one of my first dessert , I learnt it from one of my aunties. I learnt it when I was in collage. .... and still remember the mess I made...!!!!!
There are many ways to make Alaska. This is my way.





1 basic recipe sponge cake, ( the recipe I used for the cake is linked)  baked in a 10 inches round tin.
1 litre vanilla ice cream
1 tin mixed fruit tin.
5 egg whites + 10 tbsp fine sugar



Make sponge cake and cool.
Cut horixontally  1/3 of the cake from top and keep aside.
Keep a steel plate upside down and cover it with foil and place the 2/3rd part of the cake on top.
Fill the center of the cake with fruits.
Cover the ice cream with the 1/3 of the cake.
Beat the egg whites till soft peaks form, then add 1 tbsp sugar at a time  and beat to a smooth, glossy meringue.
Spread the meringue on top of the cake.
Sprinkle fine sugar on top.
Preheat the oven to 220C and bake for 5 to 10 minutes until the meringue is light brown.
