Unfortunately I’ve been too busy to whip up a new recipe for Burns Night, butttt here are my top three treats to tempt you.
So this is actually a breakfast recipe, but brinner is a thing right? It’s one of those ‘dessert for breakfast’ meals, but I could eat oats for breakfast, lunch and dinner (sometimes I do). Cranachan is the ultimate Burns Night pud, and you could easily upgrade this to an evening treat instead of a meal to break fast with.
Neeps and tatties are the standard accompaniments to haggis on Burns Night. Surprisingly I’m not so much of a haggis girl, so I made this instead. I substituted potatoes for carrots but kept the much loved parsnip for added texture and moisture. It’s a proper cake, nothing fancy at all, and comes complete with a maple glazed crust. (Whisky marmalade is not optional this evening!)
This one takes a little bit more time, but it’s definitely worth it. It’s the party piece. Two-tiered, cinnamon and ginger spiced honey sponge, and topped with lashings of whisky doused cream. Is there anything I need to add?
