Black-and-White Baked Alaska

Tuesdays with Dorie
Baking Chez Moi
This wonderful baked Alaska was the dessert for our Father’s Day celebration. The base is a flourless chocolate cake described as “fallen souffle with a brownie-like texture”. It was  the perfect base because it did not get too hard in the freezer. 
I made anise ice cream from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz. His recipes never disappoint and this one was no different. 
The meringue whipped up nicely without any problems. I prefer to use a torch to toast my meringue instead of putting in the oven. 
This was a huge hit with my family and I would definitely make this again. To see what others thought head over to TWD.
