Baked Alaska – Christmas Eve Menu 9/9

005That dessert was the best success of my Christmas Eve dinner. All my guests had liked it.

To do it, you need : 4 cups of vanilla ice cream.

For the biscuit : 6 eggs, 7 oz of sugar, 5 oz of flour, the zest of a lemon, 2 pinches of salt, 1 oz of almonds fringes.

Preheat your oven at 400 °F. Mix together 3 eggs, 3 egg yolks (reserve egg whites), the sugar and zest of lemon. When it’s homogeneous, add the flour and a pinch of salt and mix it. Beat egg whites until stiff with the second pinch of salt. Incorporate the whites into snow in the preparation. Pour on a pastry baking tray covered with parchment paper and strew flaked almonds. Cook in the oven during 12 minutes. Put out the plate and cool the biscuit. Put some cling film inside a loaf pan. Cut the biscuit at the good size to put one in the bottom of the loaf pan. Put the ice cream on the top of the biscuit and finish with the second biscuit you have already cut at the good size.

Put in the freezer until time to serve it at your guests. When you are ready, take out the cake of the freezer and go in the kitchen to prepare the Italian-style meringue. Preheat the oven at 400 °F.

To do the meringue, you need : 3 egg whites, 3.5 oz of sugar and one pinch of salt.

Put in a bowl the egg whites, the salt and half of the sugar. Beat egg whites until stiff for 2 minutes, add the second half of the sugar and beat again for two more minutes.

Turn out the cake on a pastry baking tray. Coat the biscuit of meringue with a spatula. Make some drawings on it with a fork. Put in the oven for 5 minutes and serve your Baked Alaska just after in a nice plate.

Bon appétit !
