Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-9-inch cake pan with butter-flavored cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir in skim milk and margarine. Add flour, 3/4 cup Sugar Twin, and baking powder. Mix just to combine.
  3. Pour batter into prepared cake pan. (Batter will be thin.) Bake for 22 to 26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Remove cake from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack. Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  6. Add remaining 6 tablespoons Sugar Twin, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and cream of tartar. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  7. To assemble, place a piece of brown paper on a baking sheet, arrange partially cooled cake on paper, place ice cream in a mound on cake, and cover cake and ice cream evenly with meringue mixture.
  8. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or just until the meringue browns. Remove from oven, cut into 8 servings and serve immediately.
Tips:
  • 1. Egg whites beat best at room temperature. 2. Meringue cuts easily if you dip a sharp knife in warm water before cutting.
