THERE IS A traditional Scottish dessert called Cranachan, above.

It’s a mix of whipped cream, whiskey, honey and fresh raspberries with toasted oatmeal soaked in whiskey.

Just imagine, there is delicious whiskey in there along with raspberry and cream as well

Teadoughset themselves up at the Edinburgh Food Festival earlier this month, and their doughnuts turned heads

It’s just a pop-up shop for now, but their unique brand of doughnuts has attracted Buzzfeed and The Edinburgh News to cover them and their deliciousness.
