I think the first time I had Baked Alaska (or remember having it) was on a cruise for our honeymoon. It was served the last night of the cruise and presented with lots of pomp and circumstance. It was pushed out on a cart and it may have been on fire. I can’t remember for sure. I remember thinking “Wow, this must be one serious dessert that is a lot of work”. What a fake out! It is delicious but it is also incredibly easy to make. I love when something is simple to make but looks spectacular. That is why I think it is perfect for Easter. Your guests will be “wowed”. Only you need to know it is easy peasy.

The hardest part was deciding what flavor of ice cream to use. Should it be vanilla and strawberry, mint and chocolate, orange sherbert and vanilla or chocolate and raspberry. As you can see chocolate and raspberry won. It wasn’t the flavor combination that was the deciding factor but it was the color. Vanilla ice cream would have blended right into the angel food cake. Chocolate and raspberry would provide a wonderful contrast. I wanted you to eat with your eyes first. I also happen to have a soft spot for chocolate and raspberries.

Really if you think about it, Baked Alaska is simply an ice cream cake with meringue all around it. The name just makes it sound mysterious. It is usually made with a sponge cake but I lightened it up with angel food instead. It was first made in 1876 to celebrate Alaska being purchased by the US. Delmonico’s in NY was the first restaurant to make it. February 1st is Baked Alaska Day. So funny how every day seems to have some type of food associated with it. Hope you don’t mind the food trivia. I’ve become quite the food geek and love finding out the history of food.

Give Chocolate Raspberry Baked Alaska a try. No one needs to know how easy it is. Wow them with your spectacular culinary prowess.

Ingredients

  • 1 Meyer Lemon Angel food cake or store bought angel food cake
  • 2 cups light Chocolate Ice cream or frozen yogurt
  • 2 pt. Raspberry sorbet
  • 6 egg whites, at room temperature
  • Pinch cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Instructions

  1. Take out the 1-quart of raspberry sorbet about 30 minutes before.
  2. Line a 3-quart bowl with plastic wrap.
  3. Spoon 1 pint raspberry sorbet into the bowl. Even out with a spatula. Freeze for 1 hour. Take out chocolate ice cream 30 minute into that hour.
  4. Spoon chocolate ice cream in an even layer over the sorbet. Freeze for 1 hour. Take out the last quart of raspberry sorbet 30 minutes into the hour.
  5. Spoon remaining raspberry sorbet over chocolate in an even layer.
  6. Cut angel food cake in half horizontally and put the larger half on top of the sorbet. Cut a small piece of angel food cake from the other half and fill the whole in the middle of the angel food cake.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  8. Preheat broiler.
  9. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whisk egg whites and cream of tartar. Start on low speed and slowly work up to medium high speed. Once eggs are at soft peak, turn mixer to high and slowly spoon in sugar. Whisk until stiff peaks form. (If you turn the whisk upside down, the meringue should keep its peak)
  10. Using a spatula, cover cake with meringue.
  11. Place under the broiler for about 3 minutes. Meringue should be browned on the top and just set on the sides.
