Raspberry Cranachan with a twist

raspberries


Jordans cereal got in touch with me asking if I would like to try out some of their cereals in baking and add a little twist to traditional dishes. It's been such a busy week but I thought I would share a real tasty and quick way to create a fairly low fat dessert that is perfect for mothers day - a Raspberry Cranachan with a twist.

Now Cranachan is usually made with fresh double cream but I used a low fat creme fraiche instead for a lighter and less rich but still deliciously creaming version. This recipe also uses the wonderful Country Crisp cereal with raspberries and it adds a lovely crunch to the dessert.



Scottish Cranachan



With a little bit of preparation this dish shouldn't take you any time at all and I managed to whip three up while cooking supper.

Ingredients

100g Jordans Country Crisp with Raspberries
300g raspberries (thawed if frozen)
300ml Low Fat Creme Fraiche (or double cream)
2 table spoons whisky
mint leaves if you have, to decorate

1. Crush the raspberries with a fork. Reserve half of them, then share the rest between 4 attractive serving glasses.

2. Whip the cream or creme fraiche in a large bowl until it holds it's shape, then fold in the whisky and remaining raspberries. Add Jordans Country Crisp and fold in gently

3. Spoon into the glasses and chill until ready to serve, decorate with mint leaves

Jordans was kind enough to send me cereal to use and experiment with in different recopies but words and thoughts are 100% my own
