Berry Cranachan Mess

Berry Cranachan Mess

A delicious combination of fruit, oats, cream and meringues. Great for celebrating Burns Night!

300g frozen mixed Summer Fruits (or Fruits of the Forest), defrosted 

1-2 tablespoons (depending on how boozy you want it!) Drambuie or Jura

2-3 tablespoons Caster Sugar

½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 tablespoons Jumbo Oats

pinch of ground Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Demerara Sugar

300ml Double (heavy) Cream

5 small Meringue nests, crushed into small pieces

Follow The Steps

Place the defrosted Summer fruits in a bowl, stir in the Drambuie, caster sugar and vanilla extract and set aside to macerate for about 15-20 minutes

Toast the oats with the cinnamon and demerara sugar in a dry frying pan over a low-medium heat, stirring constantly until they are very lightly browned and slightly crisp.  Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool. 

Whip the double cream to soft peaks, then fold in the crushed meringue nests and most of the fruit and the juices at the bottom of the bowl (I like to add a small amount of the berries on the bottom of the glass and to decorate the top for a pretty finish).

Grab 4 pudding/serving glasses and place about a teaspoon of the reserved fruit mixture and a light sprinkling of the toasted oats in the bottom of each glass.  Fill the glasses with the Cranachan mess, then top with the remaining oats.
