Sweeeeet quesadillas – with nutella, biscoff and more!

I’ve had this idea for sweet quesadillas in mind for a while, so when the people at Mission Deli offered me a packet of their wraps and the ‘mission’ Use a Mission Deli Super Soft Wrap in a creative way, I decided it was finally time to realise the dream, as it were.

The original idea to make a chocolate & banana quesadilla came as I was reminiscing about a Mexican takeaway I used to go to as a student, where they made an incredible choc-banana chimichanga. With about 10,000 calories, it was a deep-fried tortilla parcel containing chocolate and sliced banana, and if I remember rightly it was also dusted with cinnamon-sugar when it came out of the fryer. Oh boy.

So, hoping to recreate the yumminess without generating a snack that has a week’s calories in it, I decided to avoid the deep-frying and make an oven-baked quesadilla instead. 

Nutella and banana were the obvious filling ingredients (although I’m not sure the original chimichanga didn’t have actual chocolate in it) as they go together so well. But right next to the jar of Nutella in the cupboard is a jar of biscoff (aka Lotus Caramelised Biscuit Spread) and attempting a banoffee version using biscoff and banana was too good an opportunity to miss.

Then things started to spiral out of control. Mixing up cream cheese, lemon & icing sugar to make a “cheesecake” spread and adding blueberries to create a blueberry cheesecake quesadilla? Consider it done.

Nutella and raspberry? Yes please.

Oh, and there was some cinnamon-icing-sugar for dusting, and a dollop of whipped cream, too.

Fortunately, I’d planned ahead and some friends had come round, and brought their children, to help us eat these delicious sweet quesadillas. The general consensus among the adults was that Nutella-raspberry was the messiest, but also the most delicious. Banoffee was a close second in yumminess.

The kids went for the Nutella-banana ones, although I think they would have preferred it if we’d left out the banana! They disappeared, anyway.

The only ones which were remotely controversial were the blueberry cheesecake quesadillas. I tasted the cheesecake mixture and got it to my liking, and I thought the end result was just right, but our guests said the cheesy bit wasn’t sweet enough. The lesson, I think, is to adjust the sugar to taste.

We made four quesadillas and devoured them between four adults and three children. As a snack, mind you! I think these would probably be fantastic for breakfast, too. Yummy.
