  • 6 jumbo size chocolate cup cakes or 12 cup cakes without frosting sliced in half
  • 6 cups of hazelnut caramel ice cream or any ice cream of your choice, softened
  • 7 egg whites room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup sugar


How to make Baked Alaska:

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place first layer of the cup cakes on a parchment paper and spoon on top about 1 cup of ice cream. Cover the ice cream with the second cup cake layer, place plastic wrap on top and freeze for about 3o minutes.
  • Remove the cakes from the freezer cover individual Baked Alaska with meringue, creating little stiff peaks with the end of the spatula or back of the spoon, then freeze for about 2 hours or over night, or until your guests are ready to have a dessert.
  • Preheat the oven to 500F.
  • Bake Baked Alaska cakes until meringue turns golden brown color, about 3 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

There are two ways of making baked Alaska meringue:

  • First one is super simple and it requires a hand mixer. Whisk egg whites on high speed for about 2 minutes, add cream of tartar, whisk for 3 minutes. Slowly add 1 cup of sugar, then continue whisking until stiff peak forms, about 5 minutes.
  • Another way of making meringue for baked Alaska cake is using a simmering water and placing a bowl over the top. In a small sauce pan add about 1 cup of water and bring it to a gentle boil. In a mixing bowl add eggs whites and sugar, then place the bowl over the simmering water, whisk for about 7 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and the mixture registers 140°F. Now, using hand mixer, add cream of tartar and whisk on high speed until stiff peak forms about 3-5 minutes.
