The idea of a dessert burrito recipe is a bit ridiculous, but who cares when the result is so delicious? It starts with a soft tortilla slathered in dark chocolate dipping sauce. Dollop a generous line of homemade vanilla custard down the centre, then add fresh fruit. Decorate the top with drizzled chocolate and a dusting of icing sugar. It’s a cool and refreshing treat that’s simple to make.

DESSERT BURRITO

Makes: around 4 burritos         Difficulty: Easy

EQUIPMENT:

Two Medium saucepans
Whisk

INGREDIENTS:

Crème Patissiere filling (vanilla custard)

500ml Full Cream Milk
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 large Egg Yolks
1 large whole Egg
125g Caster Sugar
40g Plain Flour

Extra

4 Soft tortilla shells
Dark chocolate dipping sauce
Icing sugar mixture, to dust
Chopped fruit filling of your choice (I used strawberry, banana and kiwifruit)

METHOD:

Make the crème patissiere filling

Add the milk and vanilla to a medium saucepan. Heat on low flame until the milk starts to boil. While the milk is heating get a medium bowl. Add in the egg yolks, whole egg and sugar. Whisk together until pale and thickened. Add the flour and whisk until all is combined

Immediately pour the mixture into a clean saucepan. Keep whisking together over medium heat until a thick custard forms. Remove from heat.

Pour the custard into a bowl. Cover the surface with clingwrap to prevent a crust forming on the custard. Place in the fridge to cool completely.

Assembly

Heat a tortilla in the microwave for 5 seconds. Spread a layer of chocolate sauce over the entire tortilla. Spoon a thick line of crème patissiere down the middle. Top the crème with chopped fresh fruit. Roll up the tortilla. Drizzle the top with more chocolate sauce and dust with icing sugar to finish.
