Atholl Brose


Atholl Brose
A staple of the Scottish Highlands, this pudding proves that the amount of effort expended into a dessert can be in inverse proportion to the enjoyment in return. It’s stupidly easy, yet so satisfying on a dark autumnal or winter night. Don’t take the quantities too seriously - this is meant to be adjusted to your taste
Serves: 4
  • 4 tbsp medium porridge oats
  • (or 3 tbsp oats + 1 tbsp ground almonds)
  • 4 tbsp whisky
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 150ml double cream
  1. First, spread the porridge oats (or combined oats/ground almonds) on a baking tray and put under the grill on a low heat to toast gently. Keep an eye on it, remove the minute it is gently browned.
  2. Set aside to cool.
  3. Combine the whisky, lemon juice and honey in a bowl, then add the cream and whisk into soft peaks.
  4. Fold in the toasted oats, turn into cups or glasses and chill.
  5. Serve garnished with a stick of cinnamon, a twist of lemon zest, or homemade thin shortbread rounds.
