Ernie’s Baked Alaska
Liqueur (e.g., Cointreau, Grand Marnier)
Ice cream (solidly frozen)
On a pretty baking sheet arrange a base of 1” thick pound cake.
Sprinkle with liqueur.
Spread candied fruit over pound cake.
Top with solidly frozen ice cream.
Spread meringue over all (about 1-1/2” thick).
Be sure to seal meringue well over cake edges.
Bake in hot oven (450 degrees) about 4 minutes until light brown.
Have warmed brandy ready.
Pour brandy over all, light and bring to table flaming.
It burns out quickly.

Cointreau and peach ice cream are good combinations.
6 egg whites give enough meringue for one large Alaska.
