This is a lovely Scottish desert, if you remember I serve it when I had my Burns party which you can read about here. I thought I'd share the recipe today as it would also make a great desert for a Valentines meal! 

  • 2 tbsp medium oatmeal
  • 300g fresh British raspberries
  • a little caster sugar
  • 350ml double cream 
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2-3 tbsp whisky, to taste
  • Method
  • To toast the oatmeal, spread it out on a baking sheet and grill until it smells rich and nutty. Let it cool
  • Make a raspberry purée by crushing half the fruit and sieving. Sweeten this to taste with a little caster sugar. 
  • Whisk the double cream until just set, and stir in the honey and whisky, try not to over-whip the cream. Taste the mix and add more of either if you feel the need.
  • Stir in the oatmeal and whisk lightly until the mixture is just firm. 
  • Alternate layers of the cream with the remaining whole raspberries and purée in 4 serving dishes, I used wine glasses. Pop in fridge to chill
  • I got the recipe from here

Happy Valentines Day!
