Cranachan (Scottish soft fruit brose)

Recipe by Mille®

This recipe combines traditional Scottish produce to good effect, creating a mouthwatering desert that is a delightful treat whenever fresh soft fruit is in season. Although this elegant desert is popular across Scotland, it is consumed in enormous quantities in the Loch Ness area and in the Northeast of Scotland where huge, fat, juicy raspberries abound in late summer.

I made this last night with raspberries, and loved it. I have to admit thought that I was out of whiskey so I used cognac. I can't wait to make it again, but with whiskey.
