You can bring all the elements to the table and let your guests serve themselves – it’s a very sociable way to enjoy dessert. But if you’d prefer to make it ahead of time, here’s everything you need to know.

  1. Step 1

    Spread the Scottish oatmeal onto a large baking sheet and pop it under a medium-hot grill until it releases a deliciously nutty aroma. Remove from the grill and let the oats cool.

  2. Step 2

    Using a wooden spoon, gently crush half of the fresh raspberries and push the pulp through a sieve.

  3. Step 3

    Whisk the cream and raspberries together, gradually stirring in the Glen Dochus and heather honey.

  4. Step 4

    Stir in the toasted Scottish oatmeal and whisk the mixture to create a light, airy blend.

  5. Step 5

    Take the remaining half of the raspberries and share them between glass dessert dishes. Pour the creamy Glen Dochus and raspberry mix over each one.

  6. Step 6

    Before serving, chill your Cranachan in the fridge. Now just relax and enjoy a dram or two of Glen Dochus while you wait for your guests to arrive.
