Flummery is a very old Irish dessert. This recipe is from "Classic Irish Recipes"

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toast the almonds and oatmeal in a pan until slightly browned. Set aside.
  2. Whip the cream until smooth, but not stiff.
  3. Warm the honey VERY slightly, so that it will run easily.
  4. Fold the honey, whiskey, half of the toasted almonds & oatmeal, half the berries if using them & the lemon juice into the cream.
  5. Mix thoroughly but lightly, and spoon into tall individual glasses. (looks lovely in wine or champaign glasses).
  6. Sprinkle the remaining almonds/oatmeal and berries on top.
  7. Chill and Serve.

This was a wonderful desert. It also looked so pretty in the glasses. I will be serving it again for our St Patricks Day dinner.

My DH and I liked this pretty well, however, we both agreed that if we hadn't put the strawberries in it this wouldn't have been nearly as good. The only "tweaks" I made were: 1. didn't have any almonds, so I left them out. 2. I forgot to put the lemon juice in--I'm not sure that we missed it though...??? I think I needed to whip the cream a bit more, because the strawberries wanted to sink to the bottom, which again, I don't feel that that affected the flavor. Overall, very good....will make again, probably in the spring/summer when the weather is more suited for it. Thanks!!

I made it for PAC and I loved it! So easy and elegant. I substituted berries with fresh peaches. Wordeful! Thanks, Cinnamon1025!
