    This is a great sweet we have here in Scotland. It is a complete sugar rush. It may be too sweet for some people but I love it. Try it anyway and see what you think. Kids will love it!

    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.

    This is a traditional Scottish dish. Made for after Christmas dinner, the remainder was kept for Hogmanay. In years gone by it was wrapped in cloth and steamed in a pot. The old six penny was wrapped in wax paper and cooked into the dumpling mixture, where it was good luck to find one in your slice of the dumpling. This recipe is made in the microwave and is much quicker and still has the same tasteful flavour. You will need 1 pot, 2 pint pudding bowl, cling film.

    This Scottish favourite is sure to please! This tastes just like the one you had as a child! Butter tablet is creamier crumbly fudge that is absolutely delicious! It may sound as though there is a lot of ingredients and you may think it might be tricky but it’s so easy and so tasty! I hope that you enjoy my recipe as much as I do! It melts in your mouth and is crumbly but not too hard at the same time, TRY IT! It’s lovely!

    This is pure heaven - well I think so anyway! It's sweet, melts in your mouth but is not chewy. This version is flavoured with chocolate and it makes a great gift. I always make some for my daughter's teachers at Christmas.

    A Scottish twist on a traditional bread pudding recipe. Make in individual ramekins for an impressive dinner party presentation, and try using brioche or pannetone instead of plain bread to make it extra special.

    My granny's clootie dumpling brought into the 21st century is no longer hours on end cooking, but just ten minutes in microwave! She makes it every year on Hogmanay.

    For a sticky treat, pour over ice-cream, sliced bananas and chopped walnuts or pecans.

    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.
