Method

  1. To toast the oatmeal, spread it out on a baking sheet and grill until it smells rich and nutty. It will not darken quickly, so use your sense of smell to tell you when it is nutty enough. Cool the oatmeal.

  2. Make a raspberry purée by crushing half the fruit and sieving. Sweeten this to taste with a little caster sugar. Whisk the double cream until just set, and stir in the honey and whisky, trying not to over-whip the cream. Taste the mix and add more of either if you feel the need.

  3. Stir in the oatmeal and whisk lightly until the mixture is just firm. Alternate layers of the cream with the remaining whole raspberries and purée in 4 serving dishes. Allow to chill slightly before eating.

Very tasty and easy to prepare. Also used used half of the raspberry amount as they were so very expensive. Still seemed to be enough. Went rather well with a Glengoyne single malt.

made this with greek yogurt rather than cream to keep the calorie content down and it was delicious. It isn't as firm as it should be but the taste is lovely.

A lovely and quick cranachan recipe. I only had half the amount of raspberries needed and found that this was still enough to make the sauce and have enough fresh ones left to put through the cream mixture. Therefore this works perfect if your looking to keep the cost down when making larger batches.

Very quick to prepare, and a great, summery combination of flavours. And even though this dessert contains a lot of cream, the fruit, honey and oatmeal make it feel a tiny bit more virtuous!

I tried this out last evening for Burns dinner party; for simplicity I substituted the oats for 'all butter treacle and oat cookies, made with Scottish oats, of which I roughly crushed. These were folded into the pre- prepared cream, whiskey, honey mixture along with the fresh raspberries (no puree required) just before serving, (i.e. no need to layer here); this still looked amazing served up in wide necked wine glasses and tasted absolutely delicious.
