Toasted oats are folded into lightly sweetened whipped cream and topped off with berries and a splash of dark rum in this popular Scottish dessert.
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. - 14 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 23 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
