Baked Alaska from a Pound Cake

A classic pound-cake is hollowed-out in the middle, filled with vanilla ice cream, topped with meringue, and baked for a few minutes until the edges are lightly-browned. This “Alaska” cake  is ready to be baked.

Coconut Milk, Ideal for the Low-Carb Dieter

I like to use coconut milk in puddings, pies, cakes and in my coffee. It is smooth, delicious and one 403 ml can contains only fifteen grams of carbohydrate. One-third of a cup has but three grams of it.
Coconut milk is good for marinating and poaching chicken, for grilled hors d’oeuvres on skewers, and in savoury main-dishes.
