I got the recipe out of my Betty Crocker's New Picture Cook Book from the fifties ( I can't find the exact date due to the fact that the first few pages are missing). It wasn't too complicated to do, just had to really plan those last few moments before you put it in the oven.
So as it was coming out of the oven I gathered the victims around it like it was a side show attraction!
Behold the mysterious Baked Alaska!
It did have a little bit of melting as you can see from the photo but that all happened after it came out of the oven and while I was trying to take the perfect photo! Even the one shown in the cookbook had some slight melting. So how did it taste? Like cake and ice cream with meringue. I wasn't too impressed but the fam went ape over it! Go figure!
I have noticed that this blog is really being overcome by my adventures in unusual desserts! I promise some more crafty stuff soon. I have something in the works right now that doesn't involve any measuring cups so stay tuned!
