It may sound complicated but Baked Alaska is actually very simple to make. Our recipe is very naughty indeed. But oh so delicious...

  • Preheat the oven to 220C/ fan 200C
  • For the chocolate sauce, place the sugar, butter and vanilla seeds into a pan over a medium heat and cook, stirring gently, until melted and combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate, water and cocoa powder and heat gently for 6-8 minutes, until a glossy, thick sauce forms.
  • For the baked Alaska, press the brownies into the bottom of a 20cm round ovenproof dish.
  • Drizzle over the white chocolate liqueur, then add a couple of spoonfuls of the chocolate sauce.
  • Top with 2-3 large scoops of each of the ice creams and place into the freezer to chill.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites with 25g of the sugar until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed.
  • Add the remaining sugar and whisk again until the egg white mixture is stiff and glossy.
  • Remove the dish from the freezer.  Spoon the meringue mixture over the ice cream to completely cover.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 3-4 minutes (no longer), until the meringue is just golden-brown.
  • To serve, place generous spoonfuls of the baked Alaska into bowls and drizzle with more chocolate sauce.
