June 2018 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Brownie Baked Alaska

As the temperatures heat up, cool down with homemade baked Alaska– made with a brownie base and creamy marshmallow meringue topping. I approached baked Alaska in a completely unconventional way, preparing both a large brownie baked Alaska for a big group and mini brownie baked Alaskas for a smaller setting. 


Everyone who participates in the June Sally’s Baking Challenge is automatically entered. See below for How to Join Sally’s Baking Challenge. My assistants and I keep track of your photos and randomly select 1 winner at the end of the month. This giveaway is open to the whole world. Visit the Sally’s Baking Challenge FAQ page if you have any questions about my baking challenges!

Let’s Review the May Baking Challenge

May 2018 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Classic Cheesecake

This month, I provided you with a classic cheesecake recipe but put the creativity in YOUR hands. You filled, garnished, and served cheesecake many different ways and I’m floored with your presentations. Oh my gosh the flavors– key lime cheesecake, white chocolate blueberry cheesecake, mint Oreo cheesecake, salted caramel turtle cheesecake, raspberry lime cheesecake, and so many more! My mind is racing with which one I’ll try first.

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Dana:

“I made it and it was great! No cracking, no soggy crust! The only challenge was keeping my family away from it until it cooled!”

We gathered as many cheesecake photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to guarantee your photo will be included!)

Giveaway winner for May is Jessie and she’s been notified. 🙂
