"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!"

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.
We love this recipe.
This was lovely. Much lighter taste than you would imagine. Very quick and easy to make.
I added a little bit of extra sugar and some chocolate chips. It really made a sweet difference. For the whiskey I used Dalwhinnie 15 because it's naturally sweet and it really made it pop
