Cranachan, the king of Scottish desserts

Lightly toast the oatmeal in a pan or in the oven at 180°C until it smells nutty (about 5 mins). Add brown sugar at the end of cooking to caramelize. Set aside to cool.
Set a few raspberries aside for garnish and crush the rest with a fork or potato masher.
Whip the cream with an electric mixer until stiff, then add the honey and whisky while continuing to mix with a spoon or whisk. Taste and adjust the amount of ingredients to taste.
Stir in the oatmeal (keep a few for garnish) and mix gently.
In a bowl or verrine, alternate the layers of the cream-based mixture and the raspberry purée. Place a few whole raspberries sprinkled with oatmeal on top. It's ready !
