This is a popular Scottish dessert and there are many variations and names such as Cream Crowdie. Toasted oats are folded into lightly sweetened whipped cream and topped off with berries and a splash of dark rum or whisky. Surprisingly tasty!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread oats out in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Toast in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until nut-brown. Set aside to cool. Remove them from the pan for faster cooling.
  2. In a medium bowl, whip the cream to firm peaks, but not grainy. Gently fold in the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and toasted oats. Spoon into 4 serving bowls, and top with fresh berries. For an extra touch, drizzle a bit of dark rum over each serving. Garnish with a mint leaf.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

In scotland it would really be a good scottish whisky (Scotch) that would be used not rum as suggested. I always add honey, again preferrably heather honey to the cream to give a better flavour. We have fantastic raspberries in scotland and cranachan is a nice way of using them.

I love making this simple dessert for the summer. I leave the rum out for my son and add a little extra for my husband.
