Strawberry Alaska No-Bake

No recipe image available.For this no-bake version of the classic dessert, fluffy whipped cream visually mimics the meringue that is used to make a traditional Baked Alaska.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 cups whole fresh California strawberries
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur
1 (11.5-ounce) frozen pound cake, defrosted
1 (7-ounce) can refrigerated whipped light cream

Cooking Directions:

  1. Early in the day or the day before, prepare strawberry ice: in blender, whirl berries smooth. Add sugar and liqueur; whirl again to dissolve. Pour into a loaf pan (9 x 5 x 2 3/4-inches) and freeze until almost firm.
  2. Unmold strawberry ice onto serving plate by loosening along edges with knife; touch bottom of pan in hot water for 10 seconds. (If melting occurs, place dessert in freezer for 10 minutes.)
  3. Cut cake into 6 slices. Arrange cake slices evenly over strawberry ice. Return to freezer for at least one hour.
  4. Frost entire cake with whipped light cream.
  5. Return to freezer for an hour, or cut and serve at once.

Makes 8 servings.


  • For ease in cutting remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving.
  • Substitute: 2 (10-ounce each) packages frozen sliced California strawberries with sugar and omit 3/4 cup sugar. Thaw just enough to chop. Whirl in blender, and proceed as directed above.
