Yesterday we went to our friends' house for their annual Halloween bash. We eat, we laugh, we drink, and then we trick-or-treat. I asked her what I could bring and she asked if I could make a Baked Alaska. Apparently, she's been coveting one since I posted this one, this one, and - maybe - this one. Done. It had to be gluten-free because her son and a few guests can't tolerate gluten.
- ice cream (I used pumpkin and eggnog)
- 8 egg whites
- 2 T organic granulated sugar
- Also needed: butane torch
Traditionally, you brown this in the oven. Since I was doing this at a friend's house, I decided to brown the peaks with my torch. It was simple and might be the way I make Baked Alaska from now on. Serve immediately!
