Ingredients

  1 cup chocolate
  1 cup whipped cream
 1 loaf pound cake
  ¼ cup brewed coffee
  3 cups coffee ice cream
  6 egg whites
 1 cup sugar
  ½ teaspoon tartar cream
  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 ¼ teaspoon salt

Preparation

1

In a saucepan, bring cream to boil. Pour over chopped chocolate; whisk until smooth. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until cooled, about an hour. Meanwhile, slice pound cake into three layers. Cut it into circles; brush tops with coffee. In a pan, combine egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar. With a hand mixer, beat on low speed for one minute. Continue beating until egg white mixture reaches 160°C, for 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add vanilla and salt; beat until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Invert layered cakes onto an ungreased baking sheet and immediately spread meringue, sealing to cover completely. Heat with a kitchen torch until meringue turns light browned and serve.
