Over the summer, my husband and I took turns taking our son out for dinner one a week night to give him a break from (I mean, not to point fingers or anything) the occasional yelling/food-flinging dinnertime antics of The Interloper, a.k.a. On one of my evenings, he pointed to the top of one of the many mirror-covered walls at the restaurant with the menu scrawled over it and said “What’s a Baked Alaska?
” “Well, son,” I began because let’s not even pretend I don’t live for this kind of stuff, “It’s a dessert in which ice cream is wrapped in cake and then covered in a marshmallow-y frosting that’s toasted and then they light it on fire…” Look, I don’t know what stuff you’re made of, but I consider telling a 6 year-old that ice cream wrapped in cake, frosting and fire exists but not for them is cruel and unusual punishment.
Put the cooling rack with the brownie right into the freezer to fully cool and firm up, about 30 minutes. Use the outline of the ice cream bowl to mark the size you want to trim the brownie to, and then cut away — don’t forget to share the scraps (or not).
Use the plastic covering the bowl/mold as handles to yank the firm ice cream out of the bowl and onto the brownie. Return the ice cream-topped brownie cake to the freezer to firm again, 1 to 2 hours.
The frosting is just a meringue and we’ve totally got that down. Now, I understand that Turning Seven and Setting Cakes On Fire is pretty exciting stuff. But we’re not because I’ve been fidgeting in the background all month trying to figure out how to tell you something cool was happening but couldn’t decide how. I tried so hard to come up with the perfect way to celebrate this and then got flummoxed and picked 4. Without you, well, I don’t know what I’d be doing but it certainly wouldn’t be getting to write songs of fire and ice cream all day. Most importantly: What’s your favorite thing to cook? (I’ll settle for an answer to any of the above.) It’s been way too since our last Q&A — almost two years (gulp). Snap me all your questions you have and I’ll do my best to answer them before my kids find me and demand I make them dinner. I was going to soften the ice creams and freeze them in layers that lined the bowl so when you sliced into it, you’d have arcs of ice cream and it was going to sooo special and then I did one layer and it was a mess (pulling up the plastic, melting off too fast) and said “AARGH!
Whisk in sugar, then eggs, one at a time, then vanilla and salt.
Stir in flour with a spoon or flexible spatula and scrape batter into prepared pan, spread until even.
Plus, I learned you can frost it and freeze it hours and more before you need it, meaning that it was easy to get a lead on this. Food52 invited me to be their newest Writer In Residence this month, which is fun enough, but given the big anniversary over here, I’ve been writing on the topic of 10 years of blogging, if you ever wanted to read more behind-the-scenes stuff. ” and just started scooping the ice cream into the bowl instead and it’s 1) so much easier and 2) marbled and pretty. You can throw many other things into this massive bowl — fudge sauce (mint optional), butterscotch, salted caramel, rainbow sprinkles, cookie crumbles — to add more texture and flavor but you’ll also be just fine without it.
We use a brownie here for the base; it’s a ridiculously simple one-bowl recipe and my favorite brownie. While this could theoretically be done over a few hours, especially if you have a freezer that’s pretty good, I found it a lot easier to do over 2 days, mostly because at each step that you have the ice cream out of the freezer — first, to scoop it into the bowl mold, next to unmold it onto the brownie base and third when you’re frosting it in meringue, your ice cream is going to want to soften so you’re going to want to get it back in the freezer for a bit.
I started looking at recipes that involved homemade ice cream and that’s great and all if you wish but as my son is perfectly happy with a good old-fashioned chocolate-vanilla-strawberry trifecta from the store, I decided to save my energies.
