Nutrition Per Serving
Fat 31 g
Protein 15 g
3.5ozIrish/Scottish steel cut/pinhead oats(Divided: 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup) Toasted
1/3cupScotch whisky (I used Glenfiddich (or use a top quality brand)
3Tbsporganic raw honeyDivided
2cupsorganic heavy whipping creamit’s important to use good quality whipping cream
4Whiskey Glasses or Dessert Glasses
The night before you want to make the dessert, toast 1/3 cup (2 oz) of the oats in a cast iron or very heavy pan until very lightly browned- this won’t take long, so keep a close eye, as you don’t want burnt oats. Next, put these oats in a bowl and cover with 1/3 cup (3 oz) of whiskey. Cover and let stand overnight to soak.
Oats and Berries
When you are ready to make the Cranachan, toast the second batch (1/4 cup) of oats, exactly the same as you did the first ones. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Now, choose a few choice raspberries to decorate the tops and set them aside.
Crush the rest of the raspberries in a bowl, with a spatula or fork, (just a bit, we’re not making jam) 🙂
This is the part that is different: sprinkle the raspberries with 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of whisky. Mix well and set aside.
Whip the cream until it starts to thicken, then add the other 2 tablespoons of honey, and 2 tablespoons of the whiskey. Continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Next, gently fold in the whiskey-soaked oats.
At this point, we are ready to assemble the dessert. I would recommend doing this relatively close to serving time as the dessert will taste better fresh (if possible, don’t make it in the morning to serve for dinner).
