Whipped Cream, Berries and Whiskey

Whiskey, honey and cream are a perfect combo

Whiskey, honey and cream are a perfect combo

This is a twist on the classic Scottish dessert. I used blueberries and strawberries, but any type of berry combination can be used.

Cranachan

  • 3 tbsp oatmeal
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Irish whiskey
  • 1/2 lb mixed berries washed and cut into small pieces

Toast oats in a frying pan until golden. Whip cream with honey and whiskey until thick. Mix in 2 tbsp toasted oats. In a glass, layer fruit, then whipped cream, then fruit, then whipped cream until full finishing with a layer of cream. This should make four normal glasses. Refrigerate for two hours. Top with last tablespoon of oats and serve.

    I adore Cranachan. I always tell myself that it’s healthy as it’s full of oats, raw honey and fruit! Can I eat it for breakfast?! Please tell me yes, Greg!
