Makes for a perfect dessert. Relish it with some whipped cream if you may 🙂

Fall is here now but till a few days back, at the tail end of summer, I could still spot some pineapples at my local grocery store. I got one home.

I had my tropical fruit sitting right there so I thought, “How about baking the Pineapple Upside Down Cake for dessert?!’ A perfect dessert for Fall-Winter too, have it warm with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Coming from city of Kolkata in India, sweets surround our lives. There is a sweet shop in every nook and corner of the city, some are big-wigs in the business while others are small scale shops. People eat sweets as a snack, as dessert and of course if you invite guests to your house you will inevitably receive a box-full of sweet treats. In short, everyone Loves their sweets! We will go into the Bengali favorites in later blogs but for now let me tell you this about this strange yet real person who grew up amidst all this sweet-eating frenzy but never for once developed the very Bengali sweet tooth.

But an even stranger thing is I love making desserts, Indian or Western. Continue reading
