Cardamom Oat Crepes with Cranberry Orange Sauce

I was not familiar with baking sweets with spices before since we don’t use them very often in Japan, but I got into it after living in Dubai. Trying new ingredients and finding new great flavor combinations is an exciting challenge.

Helpful Tips

I, personally, like serving this sauce hot, but cold is also tasty. I made this for my breakfast but serving these crepes with this hot sauce and vanilla ice-cream instead of yogurt is one my favorite lovely autumn desserts.
