Bread Qatayef with Cream and Nuts

Bread Qatayef with Cream and Nuts

It's the last 10 day of Ramadan and I just can't believe how fast the Holy month is coming to an end. May we all reap the benefits of this Ramadan and May the Almighty forgive us for our shortcomings. 

Coming to the recipe of the day, it's QATAYEF. Who doesn't love a crunchy Qatayef filled with Cream and/ nuts drenched in sugar syrup? It's definitely a match made in heaven. With some basic ingredients you can create a magical dish for iftar that is going to wow everyone. 

Unlike the traditional Qatayef, the pancakes are not prepared from scratch instead, store bought bread is used as the Qatayef, which is filled with nuts, fried until golden and crunchy. Finally filled with Cream using a squeeze bottle. This step is preferably done after frying because you don't want a Qatayef firecracker due to cream leaking from the Qatayef while frying.  

I am all about these delicacies, you can find more on my blog, like these Cream Cheese Kunafa Rolls, Galaktoboureko , Tulumba etc. Nothing shouts Iftar more when delicacies like these are placed on the table for iftar. This is one easy recipe won't take much time and effort too. Let's make most out of these beautiful nights and do try these bread Qatayef and let me know your feedbacks.
