Baked Alaska is a delicious dessert that mixes sponge cake with ice cream and meringue topping that is then baked. If you have never tried a Baked Alaska before, this is the day to try it and if you already love it, this is an excuse to enjoy it!
Back In 1867, there was an earnest debate over the potential purchase of the Alaskan territory from Russia. Charles Ranhofer, a chef who worked at the famous Delmonico’s Restaurant in New York City, was notoriously known for naming dishes after famous people and events. Taking advantage of the heated controversy surrounding the purchase in the frozen north, the title, “Baked Alaska” seemed to have fit the bill. It was cold, nearly frozen and quickly toasted in a hot oven before serving.
