Paul Hollywood Pies and Puds: Cranachan Cheese Cake

Paul went north for his next recipe; all the way to sunny Scotland to research on of the Scott’s best kept secret food, cranachan. So secret in fact that many of the locals he spoke to about the desert in Dundee, had never heard of it.

Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert usually made from a mixture of whipped cream, whisky, honey, and fresh raspberries, with toasted oatmeal soaked overnight in a little whisky.

Paul invites Judy to his kitchen, who is an expert on cranachan, to sample his twist on this Scottish delight, a cranachan cheese cake using crowdie – a type of soft, mild cheese.

Judy also made a contribution to today’s lunch by making her version of a traditional cranachan for them to try later.
