Burns Night - 25 January - is fast approaching and if you don't fancy going down the classic route of haggis for your Caledonian celebrations then why not try this delicious raspberry cranachan dessert instead?

A traditional Scottish dessert, cranachan is usually made with toasted oatmeal soaked overnight in a little whisky. However, this version has swapped oats for crunchy cereal, while fresh raspberries, oodles of whipped double cream and a hint of whisky complete the treat.

  • 100g (4oz) Jordans Country Crisp with Raspberries
  • 300g (10oz) raspberries (thawed if frozen)
  • 300ml (1/2 pint) fresh double cream
  • 2 tablespoons whisky (optional)
  • Mint leaves, to decorate


1 Lightly crush the raspberries with a fork. Reserve half of them, then share the rest between the serving glasses.

2 Whip the cream in a large chilled bowl until it holds it shape; then fold in the whisky (if using) and remaining raspberries. Add the country crisp and fold in gently.

3 Spoon into the glasses and chill until ready to serve, decorated with mint leaves.
