Ice and fire: Baked Alaska


Made this for a friend's birthday like two weeks ago. Baled Alaska is a dessert made of ice cream placed on a slices of sponge cake and topped with meringue. The entire dessert is then placed in an extremely hot oven for just long enough to firm the meringue. Putting ice cream in the oven sound crazy

Basically, you just need three things for this dessert: Sponge cake, ice cream and meringue, I was too lazy+no time to make my own ice cream so i just bought it off from tesco. you can use any flavour of ice cream.

Method:
1. Put ice cream on sponge cake
2. Spread meringue over it
3. Put in a Pre-heated 250C oven for 3-4 mins/ Use a blow torch to colour the meringue.
