““Ataif” are popular in the Middle East. The batter is very sweet and the pancakes are dipped in honey, sprinkled liberally with walnuts and cinnamon and topped with a thick, almost solid cream called “kaymak”. This unctuous topping makes even Double Devon cream seem weak and watery, although Double Devon—or even stiffly whipped cream—can be used.”
