Baked Alaska

  • Total Time: 21 mins
  • Yield: 3 1x




  1. Line a paper plate with plastic wrap. Place whoopie pie on the plastic. Take a generous scoop of maple pecan gelato and place it on top of the whoopie pie. Leave about a ½ inch border of cake, but spread the gelato to cover the rest of the cake. Take a generous scoop of vanilla gelato and spread on top of the maple pecan gelato. Wrap the plastic up around the entire thing and press the gelato together so it forms an oval shape. Freeze for at least 2 hours and up to 12.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and preheat broiler. Remove the frozen cake and ice cream from the freezer, unwrap it, and place it on the tray. Cover the entire thing with meringue. Be very generous and do not leave any ice cream or cake uncovered. Try to make some pretty peaks in the meringue before placing under the broiler for about 1 minute. Keep a very close eye on it and do not walk away from the oven, as it can burn very easily. Serve immediately.
