On a pretty baking sheet arrange a base of 1” thick 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.

Notes

Cointreau and peach ice cream are good combinations.

6 egg whites give enough meringue for one large Alaska.
