Brownie Baked Alaska
Pistachio and strawberry ice cream top a fudgy brownie base that's frosted with meringue and torched to create this baked Alaska. This concept is said to have emerged when a British physicist known as Count Rumford was experimenting with egg whites during the Revolutionary period and found them to be poor conductors of heat. Make sure to bake the brownie base and layer the ice creams the night before prepping the meringue.
Recipe Summary test
Brownie crust can be made the day of and chilled for a minimum of 1 hour.
If not serving immediately, freeze the cake before torching. You can also assemble the ice cream-brownie dome first, freeze, and frost with meringue later.
