Buttered Scotch Blondies / Skotske Smørblondies

A retro cake recipe found on cookingchannaltv.com
Buttered Scotch Blondies_cookingchanne_post

Baker’s Note: This brownie pays homage to the original drink that inspired the term butterscotch, that is before it was replaced with artificial flavoring during prohibition. The ingredients make these brownies extra special. The addition of real Scotch whisky, a healthy dose of real butter, and the omission of leavening agents, leaves a great textured blondie with balanced sweetness without the harshness of artificially-flavored butterscotch chips.

Cranachan

A traditional Scottish dessert found on picturebritain.com317_Cranachan_post

Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert. It is sometimes called Atholl Brose (which is more properly a drink using similar ingredients). A traditional way to serve Cranachan is to bring dishes of each ingredient to the table, so that each person can assemble their dessert to taste. Tall dessert glasses are also of typical presentation.

It was originally a summer dish and often consumed around harvest time, but is now more likely to be served all year round at weddings and on special occasions. A variant dish was ale-crowdie, consisting of ale, treacle and whisky with the oatmeal – served at a wedding with a ring in the mixture: whoever got the ring would be the next to marry.

Island Whisky & Fruit Cake / Karibisk Whisky & Fruktkake

A tempting, exotic fruit cake recipe found on tesco.realfood.com127_whiskey and fruit cake_post

With a name like that one would think we’re taking about a Scottish speciality, but the recipe actually stems from the Caribbean Islands. But with Whiskey, nuts and dried fruit it may very well replace the more traditional fruit cake around my neck of the woods from now on.
