- To make the oats: Preheat the oven at 180C. Gently melt the butter in a saucepan and then add the honey and the sugar. Cook on a medium heat while stirring for about three minutes.
- Remove from the heat and then add oats. Stir this well while still hot to make sure the oats get fully coats in the mixture.

Cook for eight minutes until the have flattened out and are golden brown. Remove and allow to cool. Stew the fruit: Peel and chop the apple into cubes about 1cm by 1cm.
- Add the sugar to a heavy-bottomed pan and heat gradually until it reaches a light caramel. Carefully add the apple and half the brambles.
- Continue to cook on a medium heat until very soft and the mixture isn’t too wet. Now remove from the heat and add the remaining brambles, whisky and salt. Let the residual heat soften the add brambles.
- To serve: Add a large spoon of the stewed fruits to a bowl and place a disc of the oats on top.
- Optional – lightly blowtorch the oats so it shapes itself over the fruit. Add a scoop of ice cream to the side and garnish with fresh brambles and apple.
