This recipe I saw in the December edition of one of the food magazines here in Turkey.
The recipe seems not to be so difficult. 

I found the end result somehow too sweet so you may consider adding less sugar to the brownie (like 2 glasses instead of 3.5!) 

Ingredients (serves 8):

For the brownie:
2 eggs
1 glass of sugar
Half a glass of yoghurt
Half a glass of oil
One glass of flour
4 spoons of cacao powder
1 bag of baking powder
50 grams of walnuts, chopped fine

walnuts chopped fine

For the pumpkin parfait:
800 grams of pumpkin, cleaned and cubed
