These individual baked Alaska couldn’t be easier to make. Simply top ready-made madeira cake with smooth peanut butter, chocolate ice cream and quick meringue then bake until gooey perfection.

We used bought madeira sponge cake, but any sponge cake or flan case will do the trick. Please note: you might have some meringue mixture left over.
Prepare the ice cream sponge bases up to 2-3 days ahead and store in the freezer, wrapped, until ready to finish the dish (steps 3-4).
The secret to baked Alaska is to make sure everything is frozen solid before adding the meringue. It’s also important to heat the oven before you start whisking the meringue – any delay and the ice cream might start melting too quickly. And don’t leave any gaps in the meringue coating.
