Cranachan (traditional Scottish dessert) 传统苏格兰甜点

Cranachan, is a traditional Scottish dessert, made from a mixture of whipped cream, whisky, honey, and fresh raspberries, with toasted oatmeal. I have never been to Scotland and never try this dessert before. I found this dessert when I try to find a recipe to use up some oats that have keeping for too long. My family don't consume much oats, I will buy when there is a need arise..

I was impressed with this honey toasted oats, sweet and a bit crunchy..

Since the raspberries were a bit sour, combine with sweet and crunchy honey oats and smooth cream, this is a nice dessert actually..

This is my first known about cranachan,
i guess i'll like it because it contains fresh raspberry and cream, the crispy oatmeal topping made it better
since wiskey is not that easy to find here in indonesia, i guess i'll replace it with other liquor.....

lena said...

Anything with cream and raspberries look good to me. Its great oats is included which makes it so healthy.
