This is a popular Scottish dessert and there are many variations and names such as Cream Crowdie. Oats are toasted, then folded into lightly sweetened whipped cream and topped off with berries and a splash of whisky. Finish your Burns supper with this delicious tradition.
Instead of adding all ingredients together - add the sugar (or use syrup) to the cream -layer them into glass's - looks good - tastes yummy - 28 Dec 2011
In scotland it would really be a good scottish whisky (Scotch) that would be used not rum as suggested. I always add honey, again preferrably heather honey to the cream to give a better flavour. We have fantastic raspberries in scotland and cranachan is a nice way of using them. - 14 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love making this simple dessert for the summer. I leave the rum out for my son and add a little extra for my husband. - 23 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
