Cranachan Recipe

      6 Servings


  • 1/3 cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 3 tablespoons Scotch Whiskey, divided
  • 12 ounces Fresh Raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 tablespoon Honey


  1. Add the oats to a large sauté pan and toast over medium heat, stirring often until they smell nutty. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl with a lid. Mix in 2 tablespoons of whiskey, cover and allow to soak overnight.
  2. Add the raspberries to a small pan along with the granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon water over medium low heat.
  3. Mash the raspberries a with a spoon and cook until the sugar dissolves and it resembles a chunky sauce.
  4. Turn off the heat and transfer to a bowl to cool.
  5. Whip the cream, honey and remaining whiskey using a stand or hand mixer until it forms stiff peaks.
  6. Using a glass bowl or glass tumbler, add a layer of raspberries to the bottom of the bowl. Top with cream, then sprinkle with oats. Repeat the layers until the bowl is full.
