ISO Alaska Cake Recipe

Hi, I'm from Israel and my brother lives in Boston.
I know he likes a cake that is called: Alaske cake.
He's coming for visit and i want to make it for him.....
All the recepies i found contain a "devil's food cake mix",
and i'm not familiar with that mix....
What is it exactly and does anybody have a recepie without it...???

Thanks!!!!!!!
Tami

Here is a recipe that was posted here last year. I don't believe anyone has tried it (or if they have they haven't posted a review) so I can't vouch for it, but it may be more in line with what you're looking for.

Good luck!

Here's a site with several different Alaska cakes. I hope you find what you are looking for!
Devilsfood is a chocolate cake.

tami, welcome to DC.

Devil's food cake is a dark chocolate cake. So you could make this recipe with a chocolate cake mix.

It sounds like your recipe is different from traditional baked alaska. Does it also contain some fruit?

I found all kinds of recepies, they all had fruits or ice crime or both...
So now i know i can make a simple chocolate sponge cake or a chocolate fudge cake!
I don't like using cake mix anyway........
