Scottish Brose Pudding Recipe
Brose is a Scots word for an uncooked form of porridge in which oatmeal (and/or other meals) is mixed with boiling water and allowed to stand for a short time. The recipe for Athole Brose, the cocktail form of brose, in “Traditional Scottish Recipes” by George L Thomson is flavored with whiskey and honey. To make this brose pudding, I pureed steel cut oats and mixed it with whipped cream, whiskey and honey. The texture is similar to tapioca, but the flavor is undeniably Scottish.

Prep: 20 minutes Cook time: 30 minutes Serves: 8
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 cup honey
- 3 tablespoons whiskey
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 6 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons whiskey
- Place the steel cut oats in a large heat resistant bowl. Add boiling water to the steel cut oats and allow to sit for 30 minutes. With an immersion blender or in a food processor, blend the oats. Stir in the honey and whiskey until well-combined.
- Whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold into the oatmeal mixture.
- Place into serving bowls and refrigerate until set, at least one hour. If using a glass container, you can put a little of the honey drizzle at the bottom of the container for a prettier presentation.
- Before serving, drizzle with the honey/whiskey mixture.
