Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert made from raspberries, cream, oatmeal and honey. It’s often served on Burns Night.
- 50g(2oz) medium oatmeal
- 300ml (10fl oz) double cream
- 3tbsp heather honey
- 6tbsp Scotch whisky
- 340g (12oz) fresh raspberries
Toast the oatmeal under the grill, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Allow to cool.
Whip the cream until it holds its shape, then fold in the oatmeal, honey and whisky.
Layer the cream mixture with the raspberries in four glass pots, finishing with a few raspberries and some extra oatmeal.
These will sit happily in the fridge for a few hours – just bring the Cranachan out 30 mins before you need them.
Top tip: For a kids' version of Cranachan, swap the whisky for orange juice.
