Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert made from raspberries, cream, oatmeal and honey. It’s often served on Burns Night.

  • 300ml (10fl oz) double cream
  • 3tbsp heather honey
  • 6tbsp Scotch whisky
  • 340g (12oz) fresh raspberries

Method

  • 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.
