Why I Love This Recipe

Cointreau and peach ice cream are good combinations.

6 egg whites give enough meringue for one large Alaska.


Ingredients You'll Need

Pound cake
Liqueur (e.g., Cointreau, Grand Marnier)
Candied fruit
Ice cream (solidly frozen)
Meringue
Brandy, warmed


Directions

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.
