Dessert Chimichangas

OK, time for a new dessert! If you like apple cake, you just have to try this recipe. It’s full of sweet and tasty flavors.

Serving: 4 portions
Estimated time to prepare: 60 min
Difficulty: 2


Apple sauce:

2 apples
1,75 dl water
0,3 dl cornstarch (Maizena)
Seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean
0,75 dl granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt

4 small tortillas (i prefer corn over wheat, but that’s up to you)
Granulated sugar
Oil for frying



Peel and cut the apples into small cubes.


Mix the dry ingredients first, including the seeds from the vanilla bean. Add the water and bring up to a boil. Cook a few minutes until the mixture is getting thick.

Add the apple cubes and cook until they are almost tender. This may take 10-20 minutes depending on the size of the cubes. Let the mixture cool before you continue.


When the mixture finally has cooled, spoon a decent amount in the middle on a tortilla. Wrap the ends in and roll it. Heat frying oil in a roasting pan to about 150-160 degreees C. Fry the chimichangas one side at the time until they have nice color.


Mix sugar and cinnamon on a plate. Roll the fried chimichangas in the mixture to get a nice coating.


Let them cool a bit before you serve. They can be reheated for later use as well. 🙂 They can be served alone, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy this exciting dessert!
