 Serve this colorful fruity dish as a starter course for a substantial Mexican-inspired breakfast.


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 pints strawberries, hulled, sliced (grind a little black pepper on top)
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 mango, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 kiwi, peeled, sliced
  • 1 banana, peeled, sliced just before serving to prevent browning
  • 1/2 pint sorbet (use a flavor of one of the fruits)
  • 8 mint sprigs
  • 8 edible flowers


  1. To make the batter, place all chocolate tortilla ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth with an electric mixer. Cover the batter and place it in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. To make the tortillas, remove the batter from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature, 20 to 30 minutes. Heat a small skillet or crepe pan over low heat. Pour in a little less than 1/4-cup batter and tilt pan quickly to spread batter into a 6-inch circle. Once the edges look dry, 2 to 3 minutes, loosen the edges with a knife and turn over the tortilla. Cook for another minute or two.
  3. To shape tortilla, lift the tortilla out of pan with a knife or spatula and quickly drape it over a rolling pin. It will become firm and crisp as it cools. If the tortilla doesn’t firm up, it means it isn’t thoroughly done, so cook it a bit longer.
  4. To make the fruit filling, gently mix berries in a bowl. Keep remaining fruit separate until assembling or they’ll pick up color from the berries. To serve, place a tortilla on a serving plate and generously fill it with berries, then tuck in the mango, kiwi and bananas. Add a scoop of sorbet and garnish with mint and an edible flower.
