Oh, wow... I am 64 and remember making Brownie Baked Alaska when I was 14... from a Good Housekeeping Cookbook! My grandson was using the cookbook for a math-class project Nov 5th, 2017 and I showed him the copyright in the book 1967, and the recipe ) Brings back memories... would make it in a hot second if I had a way to transport it to my daughter's house. I didn't use a kitchen torch, just a super-hot oven briefly. I also made a meal of Baked Alaska with meatloaf base and Mashed potato "meringue." If I recall correctly, cooked, chopped carrots replaced the ice cream. The extra-hot oven made the mashed potatoes a bit golden.

This dessert is impressive. The presentation alone will get a few ooh's and ahh's from my family members. (We don't get out much - lol) I like to come with new dishes to try so I don't have to eat it all myself. I know it is my time to bring the dessert for next Sunday dinner. So this is it.

Before I read over the recipe, I just knew this dessert was going to be too complicated for me to tackle. The instructions are clear and the pictures included are inspirational. For the next family gathering, this will be the dish I contribute.

This vintage dessert is something that isn't really talked about that much anymore, but it will really impress your guests at your next dinner party. If you live in my neck of the woods, there is actually a dairy farm / ice cream factory (Hudsonville Ice Cream) that has a limited edition candy cane ice cream around the holidays that is very good. Big time saver. But you could use any flavor of your favorite ice cream and this would still be awesome!

Wow, this has a beautiful presentation! So pretty in pink! I've never made a baked Alaska and I'm not even sure I've ever tasted one either. This intrigues me though because it can be made very easily with a brownie mix and store bought ice cream. I don't own a kitchen torch and it sounds slightly scary to me so I'd roll the dice with the broiler. I can't wait to try this one out!

For a classic dessert, I've never had Baked Alaska. It always looked interesting, but I never had the opportunity to make it. It's always struck me as one of those 1950's style desserts that periodically come back into fashion. This recipe looks easy and straightforward enough to warrant giving a try. I honestly think I'd simplify the process by using a good quality store-bought ice cream the first time I tried this, but I'll definitely be giving it a go.

This looks amazing!

This is a different baked Alaska. It is normally made with cake instead of brownies. I like using peppermint ice cream with the chocolate brownie. Those flavors go great together. I love making everything totally from scratch. It is a nice change from using a box of this or a box of that. For the unsweetened chocolate, you can substitute three tablespoons cocoa powder and one tablespoon oil or butter for every ounce called for.
