Last week, a cousin came by to invite my family to his wedding. Usually, in these situations, we make lots and lots of good food. And I told my mom I’d make the dessert.
The problem was: I’d be coming from work, so I had to find a nice and impressive dessert that could be whipped up in nearly 15 minutes of working time.
Baked Alaska is one perfect choice for these situations: A cake bottom, ice cream filling and meringue top. Bake it just enough to brown the meringue. It will work as an insulating layer, so the ice cream will barely feel the heat coming. Slice it, and off you go! (Ah, and sorry for the picture... It was from my cellphone)
