Try battered butter pud

Have your say

Chefs in the Capital have created a calorific treat to rival the deep-fried Mars Bar – deep-fried butter balls.

The Fiddler’s Elbow, in Picardy Place, is serving the pudding for what is thought to be the first time in Scotland.

The sticky dessert, called Braveheart Butter Bombs, is served with Irn-Bru ice cream and coulis. A variation featuring deep-fried whisky will also be offered.

Critics have dubbed deep-fried butter a “coronary on a plate”, but head chef Simon Robertson said it should be alright in moderation.
