2 tbsp good malt whisky

First, you’ll need to toast the oats to bring out their nutty flavour. You can do this either in a dry frying pan, or on a tray in the oven. Toast until they’ve slightly darkened in colour, then remove from the pan to cool.
Lightly whip the cream until it reaches the soft peak stage, then combine gently with the whisky and honey.
Crush the majority of the raspberries roughly with a fork and set aside, saving a few whole ones to garnish the top.
Carefully assemble the dessert in individual glasses, starting with a layer of cream, followed by the mashed raspberries and oats, ending with a layer of cream. How many layers you do depends on the glass size and portions you’re making.
Cover and allow to chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Drizzle with honey, oats and a few fresh raspberries before serving.
