Bombe Alaska

Method

  • Preheat oven to 210°C fan forced (230°C normal).
  • Beat the egg whites using a hand mixer until soft peaks are formed. Then add the caster sugar and beat until stiff and shiny. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag and set aside.
  • Lay slices of the Swiss roll on a lightly oiled baking tray, in one layer, and top with a scoop of ice cream.
  • Then pipe a thick layer of meringue over the sponge and ice cream and cook in the oven for 2-3 mins until lightly browned. 
  • nb. You could make one large Bombe Alaska, if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites
  • 90 gm caster sugar
