1 litre Vanilla Ice Cream
1 (8 in square) vanilla cake
8 egg whites
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup powdered sugar
Line an 8 in square pan with aluminum foil.
Slice the cake in somewhat thin slices.
Line the the bottom and sides of the foil lined pan with cake slices.
Soften the ice cream enough so that you easily spread it.
Spread ice cream evenly over the cake.
Cover and freeze for about 8 hours or until firm.
Beat egg whites, cream of tartar, salt and sugar until very stiff peaks form.
Immediately turn cake and ice-cream upside down on to an oven proof serving dish.
Cover all over with the egg white mixture. Cover cake completely to seal.
To serve, preheat oven to 425.
Remove ice cream from the freezer and bake 8-10 minutes, or until the meringue is a little firm on top.
Serve and enjoy this “hot” ice cream treat!
