Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar 
  • 2 cups milk 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 teaspoons fennel seeds 
  • 1/2 teaspoon green cardamom powder 
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips 
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cinnamon sticks 
  • 6 cardamom pods 
  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced 
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and sliced 
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries 
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting 

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Combine the whipping cream and sugar in large bowl. Beat with a whisk or hand mixer until soft peaks form. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, flour, egg and salt until smooth. Stir in the fennel and cardamom powder. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Melt the chocolate and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a double boiler over low heat. Stir in the cinnamon sticks and cardamom pods. Once chocolate is melted, turn off the heat and let sit until ready to use.

Heat a large nonstick skillet or cast iron griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with some of the remaining butter. For each crepe, ladle about 3 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet or griddle and spread to 4 inches in diameter. Depending on the size of the griddle or skillet, you should be able to make 3 to 4 crepes at a time. Cook the crepes until lightly browned on the bottoms, about 2 minutes. Gently flip the crepes and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes longer. Stack the crepes on a plate and repeat with the remaining batter, making sure to butter the pan between batches. You will need 12 crepes.

To assemble: Spread about 2 teaspoons of the melted chocolate on a crepe and arrange some sliced strawberries on top. Place a second crepe on the strawberries. Spread 2 teaspoons of the chocolate on the second crepe and arrange some kiwi slices on top. Place a third crepe on top of the kiwis. Spread 2 teaspoons of the chocolate on the crepe and arrange some raspberries on top. Place a fourth crepe on the raspberries. Make 2 more stacks in the same way. Dust the stacks with confectioners' sugar and garnish each with a dollop of whipped cream. 

Cook's Note

These crepes are slightly thicker then a regular crepe and thinner than a pancake.
