  • Spread onto a lined cookie sheet and bake for approx 15- 20 minutes in

  • Freeze this mixture in a container with a lid over night.

To Assemble

  • Take the icecream out of the freezer to soften for 10-20minutes.
  • Have moulds ready( small Chinese teacups or ramekins or plastic ones like I've used) and space in the freezer ready along with the frozen raspberries.
  • Working quickly spoon the ice cream into moulds pushing down to eliminate air pockets to a bit over halfway. Press two or three raspberries into the ice cream and top with a piece of cake ( as shown below) and freeze till needed.
  • To Serve
  • Beat the egg whites in a clean grease free bowl, till frothy and then gradually add sugar until the meringue is glossy and thick. Transfer to a piping bag or zip lock bag with the corner snipped off.
  • Demould the bombs by dipping briefly into hot water, and gently running a knife around the edge( you can do this and refreeze them) and turning out. Pipe each one with meringue ( or just spread with a knife). Brown the completed Alaskas under a hot grill or with a brulee torch till golden ( like I did)
  • Serve with Raspberry sauce and Praline

Raspberry Sauce

  • Put the sugar and raspberries into a pot and simmer till melted.
  • Put through a sieve and chill.
