Hi Bold Bakers!

A great dessert idea to make this summer is Dessert Tacos! Most of all, they are fun to make and you can customize the flavors to your preference. Dress them up any which way you like because the flavor combinations are endless.

I recently made Homemade Ice Cream Cones. They turned out so great and I quickly realized the batter has multiple uses since it is able to be shaped and crisps up well so it is perfect to use to make tacos with. Plus, it works great for edible ice cream bowls.

For these Dessert Tacos there is no need for any special equipment like a waffle maker so I just cook them off on a cast iron or nonstick pan. You might be wondering how do I shape them? I use a very advanced system called “putting  a wooden spoon under your heaviest book” (patent pending). You lay your cooked shell on the handle of the spoon and gently fold it over keeping it nice and open so you’ll be able to fit your filling in there. It sounds simple because it is simple, and that was the hardest part of this recipe.

This Bananas Foster Taco was my brain child for the simple fact that I want everyone to a least try roasted banana. They are one of life’s simplest pleasures.  Even If you don’t make the taco, grill off a banana and have it with vanilla ice cream. If it is not one of the most wonderful things you have ever eaten then I’ll eat my hat.

Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ½ cup (4 oz/115g) sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • ⅔ cup (5 ⅓ oz/150g) all purpose flour, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/30g) butter, melted
Instructions
  1. For the Taco Shell: Place egg whites, sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt into a mixing bowl and whisk together. Stir in flour and butter until fully incorporated and batter is smooth.
  2. Place a nonstick skillet, cast iron pan or frying pan on low heat.
  3. Scoop 1 generous tablespoons of batter into the skillet over low heat and spread into a thin even layer. Move it around fast to get a nice round shape. Spread it out roughly 5 inches x 5 inches.
  4. Place skillet over medium heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until base has set. Flip and continue to cook for 1- 2 minutes.
  5. Lift the disc off the griddle and QUICKLY and carefully lay it over the handle of a thick, round wooden spoon. Guide the shell with your hands to make sure the sides of the shell are even. Hold it for a few seconds until it hardens and then leave it there to cool. Use a heavy pan or big book to keep your wooden spoon in place. This must be done quickly as the shell will begin to harden almost immediately after leaving the skillet. Set up the wooden spoon before your start cooking off your tacos.
  6. These taco shells are best eaten the day they are made but If you have any left over carefully store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
  7. Nutella & Strawberry Taco: Pipe or scoop some Nutella into the taco shell. Lay on some slices of strawberries and pipe on some freshly whipped cream. Enjoy straight away!
  8. Choco Taco: Dip the shell in melted Chocolate and sprinkle on finely chopped, salted peanuts. Scoop some vanilla fudge ice cream into the shell. Drizzle over some extra fudge sauce and some more chopped nuts. Eat straight away or place the filled shell in the freezer to enjoy later.
  9. Roasted Banana & Vanilla Ice Cream Taco: Place a griddle or pan over medium heat. Brush with some butter and lay thick slices a banana on the pan. Let the banana sit here and caramelize for roughly 3 minutes. Do not move, just let them sit and roast.
  10. Flip and cook for another 3 minutes on the other side. You will notice they are soft and have a lovely golden brown color. Remove from the heat.
  11. Scoop some vanilla ice cream into the taco shell, lay over some bananas and drizzle over some salted caramel sauce. Eat straight away or place the filled shell in the freezer to enjoy later.

    Yoo-hoo! Yet another delicious and fantastic recipe! ???? I finally am able to buy baking powder and soda, so I am planning to make microwaveable pizza tomorrow. It is the last day of school today, and I look forward to the stuff I am gonna make!
    Thanks for the great recipe,

  5. joshnee on July 1, 2016 at 12:13 am

    Hi Gemma 🙂 love the idea its a fabulous twist on tacos for all the dessert loving people out there. Could one change this into chocolate tacos? How much cocoa would you add?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 1, 2016 at 3:49 pm

      Hi Joshnee,
      About one tablespoon of a good cocoa powder to the batter, this should not change the consistency too much,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Mila on July 1, 2016 at 5:11 am

    Hi Gemma, This looks really good!
    Can you tell me how long these taco’s will last in the freezer with and without the ice cream, and will they go soft when they defrost?
    I have done loads of your recipe’s and they have turned out great every time.
    Great videos, easy to follow recipes (keep em coming) very appreciated by the family 🙂
    Thanks for all your hard work…. and your hubby’s too!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 1, 2016 at 3:37 pm

      Hi Mila,
      These are really best served when they are made. If you freeze them you will need to refresh them in the oven before serving,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma! I made mug pizza today and it was SO DELICIOUS! I also registered for the profile thing, and saved a whole lot of recipes. But one question: how do you open the recipe in your profile? I can’t get it to open….. When I click on the saved recipes link, it only shows a whole lots of these:
    SUKY
    By/
    And the heart icon
    But how do you open up the recipe?!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      When you go to your profile page, you will see something that says ‘Saved Recipes’. You will be able to click on that and it will open up a page that has all of the recipes you have saved. Let me know if you have trouble with this.

    Hi gemma! Your recipes always look SO amazing and I especially love your mug recipes:) they always come out great!! I just started a blog (with baking☺) and it would be great if you could check it out and maybe even leave a comment!!! Also, how do you make a blog/youtube channel popular? I love making blog posts, but I am not sure how to get people to read it! Thank you so much!

    This is the website:

      Hi Isha,
      There seems to be a problem with your website, I could not raise it. WordPress will not give priority to free sites, and it is impossible to be ‘found’ on the web with the free version, if this is what you have.
      The best way to get out there with a blog is to be giving people what they want, discover what they are looking for, and respond to that need. If you do a short course on Digital Media Marketing, even online, you will learn a lot. Check out YouTube for lots of tutorials. Whiteboard Friday is a good one! Google also have loads of tutorials. It is important to know what you are doing!
      Gemma 🙂

    were did you get this recipe its awesome

  12. Isha on July 3, 2016 at 7:54 am

    Hi gemma! I am confused- under today (7/3) and yesterday (7/2) it said that you visited my website (www.biggerbolderbaking.com) so I am not sure what you mean. Were you not able to view my posts and website or was it something else? I do have the free version, but when I put the link here in these comments did it not take you to the right website? Please let me know so I can fix this for the future! And thank you so much for the tips on blogging☺

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 4, 2016 at 2:29 am

      Hi Isha,
      No, it did not take me to the website, i got an odd page! then I put your address in the search bar and got the message (author has removed this site).
      Gemma 🙂

  13. Mila on July 3, 2016 at 8:27 am

    Hi Gemma, just wondering when making the ice cream base do we add the vanilla or not if we are adding other flavours to it .(chocolate or strawberry) thanks

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 4, 2016 at 2:27 am

      Hi Mila,
      Not necessary when adding other flavors, I tend to add it to everything, just because I love it!
      Gemma 🙂

    Can u plz show how to make cookies in microwave

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 4, 2016 at 2:25 am

      Hi Nazima,
      I have mug cookies for microwaves here on my website (http://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/?s=mug+cookies)
      You can try these. you could also experiment with this mixture on a flat microwave plate, it is worth a try!
      Cookies generally like a dry heat, so these will be a compromise. Make a small batch at first so as not to waste the ingredients.
      Gemma 🙂

  16. Janet on July 6, 2016 at 3:27 am

    Wow Gemma, this looks so delicious! Can’t wait to try it! Could you show us how to make pizza tacos too? Thank you!

    hey gemma do you have a recipe for your salted caramel? it looks so yummy

  18. Profile photo of Rachael curtin Rachael curtin on July 9, 2016 at 8:08 am

    hey gemma i know this is a silly question but how long is your list of requested recipes?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 9, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      Hi Rachael,
      No! this is not a silly question 🙂
      Every day I add at least three requests to my list. I then evaluate them on the basis of how many other people they will appeal to, the time it takes to prepare them, and also the simplicity of preparation, baking, and serving. Sometimes I get the same request over and over, so i know that this is one I should pay attention to! that is it really. Then I have to work it around what I may have planned for special occasions, such as Thanksgiving etc. I work hard to bring you guys what you like to see. thank you Rachael for being interested in this, and for being with us,
      Gemma 🙂
