Description

Baked Alaska is a tricky dish to master, but it will leave your family and guests in awe. A delicate layer of sponge cake made with brown butter is the base for this stunning and impressive dessert. A layer of ice cream (you can use whatever flavor…

you like) is then added to the cake and frozen overnight to set. The last element added to this dessert is meringue, which is briefly baked so it caramelizes for a beautiful finish.
