How to Make Pumpkin Bavarian Dessert

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pudding according to package directions.
    Combine in a large bowl the prepared pudding, pumpkin, sugar,spice and vanilla. Mix well. Chill for 1 hour.
  2. Prepare an 8-inch spring form pan with the 2 Tablespoons of corn syrup and sprinkle with 4 ounces of the toasted almonds. Set aside.
  3. Beat the whipping cream until stiff and then fold into the chilled pumpkin mixture.
    Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan. Freeze overnight.
  4. About an hour before serving, loosen torte around edges with a knife; release spring and carefully lift off pan. Place torte and bottom base on a large serving plate. Place in refrigerator to soften.
  5. Just before serving, scoop the ice cream into petals with a large spoon and mound on top of torte.
    Drizzle with the Golden Sparkle Sauce and sprinkle with the remaining almonds.
    Cut into wedges, serve with additional sauce, if desired. This dessert will hold up well in freezer for several days.
    Golden Sparkle Sauce:
    Heat sugar in a heavy skillet over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until melted into a golden syrup.Remove from heat and very slowly stir in the boiling water.
    Return to heat and add the butter and corn syrup.
    Cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and blended; remove from heat(the sauce will be thin,but thickens as it cools). Store in a covered jar at room temperature. Makes 2 cups..
