When I was growing up in New York, mom used to take us to Gertz department store in Jamaica, NY. They had a stand which sold delicious frozen parfaits, laced with chocolate or strawberry sauce, and I remember how my sister and I loved it! I've searched the web trying to find the recipe, along with hundreds of others who also remember them, and I found one young lady who had a recipe that is similar. The dessert was unforgettable and I hope you all enjoy this recipe, too.

Velvety, smooth, creamy... so many ways to describe this delightful custard. Making caramel can be tricky. This recipe is easy and tastes amazing. Keep a stash in the fridge for an ice cream topping. Heavenly! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Bavarian Custard Dessert with Caramel Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Soften gelatin in 1/2 c cold milk.
  2. Beat egg yolks and sugar well in a heatproof bowl. Slowly add 1-1/2 cups of milk. Cook in a double boiler until mixture coats spoon. (Actually, I use a whisk and it also will coat the whisk). Add gelatin mixture and stir together. Place in fridge until mixture is completely chilled.
  3. When totally chilled, beat the mixture, with a whisk, until creamy and not lumpy. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites and whipped cream. Add vanilla and mix well.
  4. Pour into parfait dishes and chill.
  5. For caramel sauce, add butter, cream, vanilla and brown sugar to a saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil and stir for 2 minutes.
  6. Let cool slightly and serve over custard.
  7. You can add any other flavor topping to the custard if you prefer.
