If you are visiting Edinburgh for Burns Night take a look at our accommodation available at www.edinburghselfcatering.org.
Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert and it would make a perfect end to a Burn’s Night celebration meal. It also has the added bonus of including my favourite whisky in the ingredients list!
A traditional way to serve cranachan is to bring the ingredients to the table in separate dishes, and then each person can assemble their dessert to taste.
….And as someone with a weakness for puddings I can say that cranachan is incredibly rich and totally delicious! But if you would like to opt for a slightly lighter version you can substitute some of the cream for natural yoghurt!
250ml/½ pint fresh double cream
1 tbsp thick heather honey.
1 generous tbsp of Talisker whisky
1 heaped tbsp of toasted porridge oats
2 punnets raspberries
- Toast the oats in a frying pan being careful not to burn
- Whisk the cream together with the honey and whisky
- Fold in the toasted oatmeal
- Pile together with fresh raspberries and serve.
