Cranachan, A Classic Scottish Dessert

One of my favorite Scottish dishes has to be Cranachan. Cranachan is dessert traditionally comprised of whipped cream, oats, honey, raspberries and whiskey, typically served in a glass. A very simple, quick dish to make yet incredibly delicious. Here is the recipe I use, enjoy.

2tbsp of Oatmeal
300g of Fresh Raspberries
1tbsp of Caster Sugar
350ml of Double Cream
2tbsp of Honey
2tbsp of Whiskey
Some Raspberry Coulis (as garnish)

1. Toast the Oatmeal until the color changes slightly and emits a nutty aroma. Set aside to cool.
2. Whisk the Double Cream until it reaches soft peaks and then add in the Honey, Whisky and Sugar. Be sure not to over whip the Cream. If you do, just add a bit more Cream and it should fix itself.
3. Fold in the Oatmeal and whisk until firm. 
4. Serve however you see fit, use your imagination. Allow to chill before eating.
