Ever dreamed of finding a quick and easy dessert that would absolutely blow your friends away, all without you needing to spend hours in the kitchen? Well, you can stop dreaming! This dairy-free baked alaska is proof that delicious desserts don’t need to be difficult – you just need a trick or two up your sleeve.

First things first – what exactly is baked alaska? It’s simply ice cream, sorbet or frozen yoghurt piled on top of light sponge cake and wrapped in a thick layer of meringue which is lightly toasted in the oven or with a kitchen torch. While the meringue gets nice and toasty, the centre of the dessert stays as chilled as ever. Pretty cool, huh?

Since all the flavour of this magical dessert comes from the frozen centre, it’s really important that you use a really good frozen treat – like Kapiti Whipped Sorbet. The team at Kapiti are totally committed to doing whatever it takes for taste and have absolutely nailed it with this dairy-free treat.
