Baked Alaska with garlic and herb cream cheese and orange


Preparation method

  1. Place the garlic and herb cream cheese into the middle of a large heatproof plate and top with the orange segments.

  2. Place the egg whites into a clean bowl and whisk until stiff peaks are formed when the whisk is removed.

  3. Whisk the caster sugar into the egg whites a tablespoonful at a time, until the mixture becomes glossy.

  4. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and pipe around the garlic and herb cream cheese to cover it completely.

  5. Brown the outside of the meringue using a mini-blowtorch until golden-brown, or place briefly under a hot grill.

  6. To serve, dust the meringue with cocoa powder and garnish with orange slices.
