- n. A traditional Scottish dessert made with whipped cream, whisky, oatmeal, honey, and raspberries
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Dessert for Laura and me was the cranachan, which is essentially whisky and whipped cream with berries and oatmeal.
In her chocolate cranachan the toasted rolled oats are mixed with chopped toasted hazelnuts, light muscovado sugar and chocolate before being folded into the cream and raspberries.
There was a huge choice for breakfast and I had a bowl of fresh fruit and Crunchy Autumn Yogurt which was a sort of luxury breakfast cranachan – delicious, but again probably a poor pre-race choice.
The lure, according to Ginny, is "wholesome Scottish oats, and local recipes like cranachan - a swirl of raspberries, honey and cream sprinkled with toasted oats - or the punchier whisky and honey, that other great Scottish combination."
Miitra, 27, failed to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace with her dish of cranachan panna cotta, with floating islands, raspberry coulis and shortbread.
