  • 1
    sponge cake layer
  • 1
    vanilla ice cream
  • 6
    egg whites
  • 3
    cream of tartar
  • 125
    castor sugar
  • 1
    vanilla essence
  • pinch salt


Place the sponge cake on a heat resistant serving platter. Soften the ice cream slightly and cover the cake with it, leaving a narrow edge round the cake uncovered. Cover with tin foil and freeze until hard.

Preheat the oven to 220 ºC just before serving.

Make the meringue by beating the egg whites until they froth. Add the cream of tartar and beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Add the castor sugar by the spoonful, beating after each addition.

Cover the ice cream cake entirely with the meringue and bake for 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately.
