This traditional Scottish dessert is quick and easy to put together, and the nutritious combination of cream, fromage frais, oats and fresh fruit makes a superb sweet course for a special occasion meal. The whisky not only adds a taste of Scotland, but gives a fantastic kick to the flavour.

A traditional Scottish pudding that is very quick and easy to make. Use good quality honey and a single malt whisky for the best results. A simpler, but richer version can be made by omitting the raspberry.

Cranachan is traditionally eaten in January on Burns Night as a dessert following a feast of haggis. Ever so easy to make, just fresh raspberries, cream, whisky, honey and oats - that's it!

This traditional recipe is the one I use every year at Hogmanay dinner. If you leave the cranachan in a cool place for a while the oats expand and make a nice crunchy addition.
