This festive pudding is just the thing to round off a Burns' Night supper around the time of the Scottish poet's birthday on 25 January. Cranachan used to be served chilled in Scottish farmhouses or sometimes frozen into an ice cream. Scottish Heather Honey is a rich reddish-amber with a jellied consistency and a sultry taste of burnt caramel that evokes summer on the moorlands. It goes hand in hand with oatmeal, whisky and raspberries. Andre Guepratte's Raspberry Coulis is used instead of raspberries for its intense flavour, although any raspberry coulis will do.
If you can't find pinhead oatmeal,the alternative is to sift medium oatmeal through a sieve. Doing this will separate out the fine dust and coarse pinheads. Use the pinheads in the dessert and carefully return the remaining dust to the pack.
