Baked Alaska

1/2 cup sifted cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
Vegetable cooking spray
3 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
1/2 gallon raspberry-vanilla swirl frozen yogurt
4 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons water
Raspberries (optional)
Mint leaves (optional)

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a bowl; stir well, and set aside.
Beat 2 egg yolks in a large bowl at high speed of a mixer for 2
minutes. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating until thick and pale
(about 2 minutes). Add 2 tablespoons water and vanilla, beating at
low speed until blended. Add the flour mixture, and beat well.

Beat 3 egg whites at high speed of a mixer until foamy. Gradually
add 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff
peaks form. Gently stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into batter;
gently fold in remaining egg white mixture.

Pour batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking
spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until cake springs
back when touched lightly in center; let cool 5 minutes in pan on
a wire rack. Loosen cake from sides of pan, using a narrow metal
spatula, and turn out onto wire rack; let cool completely.

Place cake, bottom side up, on an ovenproof platter. Spread jam
over cake. Cut container of frozen yogurt in half; reserve one
half for another use. Cut remaining half of frozen yogurt into
1-inch-thick slices. Arrange frozen yogurt slices over jam; cover
and freeze at least 15 minutes.

Beat 4 egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed of a mixer
until stiff peaks form; set aside. Combine 1/3 cup sugar and 3
tablespoons water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook, without
stirring, until candy thermometer registers 238 degrees. Pour sugar
mixture in a thin stream over egg whites, beating at high speed.
Spread meringue over yogurt slices and around sides of cake (yogurt
and cake should be completely covered with meringue). Bake at 500
degrees for 2 minutes. Yield: 9 servings.

Serve immediately.

NOTES: You can substitute any flavor frozen yogurt and a complementary
flavored jam. Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves, if
