I have a Penne!


I have a Apple!


 Uh! Apple Penne!

I have a Penne!


 I have a Pineapple!


 Uh! Pineapple Penne!

I have a Penne Pineapple Apple Penne!


All those who have seen this hilarious viral video know I have not gone crazy. Every other person around me is humming the PPAP song.It has been reportedly viewed over 25 million times and leaves it’s viewers in splits.For those who somehow missed the bizarre sensation check this out. It can leave you either amused or irritated, but one thing is for sure it won’t leave you for the rest of the day:

People are making parodies of the PPAP song. So I thought I will try something else and make a dessert out of it. Because….I have a Penne! I have a Apple!  I have a Pineapple…I threw them all together and… Uh! I now have a Penne Pineapple Apple Penne dessert. Beaming over a slice to Piko-Taro.

If you want to be a part of this crazy sensation make a note of this  crunchy and delicious dessert I came up with. I mixed the pineapple in the batter but flavored the apple slices with lemon and cinnamon and layered them on the top and baked it till the crust became golden and crunchy. The dessert looked very pretty when sliced. It tastes best when eaten warm.


Ingredients for batter:

  • 350g penne pasta
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cottage cheese crumbed
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 1 and 1/2 cups greek yogurt+1/2 tsp.baking soda OR 2 cups sour cream
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup tinned Pineapple  chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla essence

Ingredients for crust:

  • 1 apple thinly sliced
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1-2 cups cornflakes crushed


Heat water in a large pot. Add 1/2tsp. salt. Cook the penne pasta till aldente. Strain,run cold water over it and keep seperately.

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

In a bowl put all the ingredients required for batter and mix well.

Grease a baking dish with butter and pour the batter into it.


In a microwaveable bowl put a glass of water,apple slices and lemon juice. Heat in microwave for 3 minutes. Take the apple slices out of the water gently and place on a kitchen towel to remove extra moisture.

Spread crushed cornflakes on the batter.Arrange the apple slices over the cornflakes. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon all over.


Bake for approximately an hour or until the crust is golden and the knife comes out clean.


Serve warm and enjoy….

  1. Dear skd, although i may be out of topic, I have a question for you:
    during my trip to Tamil Nadu I fell in love with the Indian hot coffee!! I bought a couple of bags ( Tripti blend ) but I forgot to ask how do you prepare it…
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    {Excellent watermarks 😉 }

    1. Hi Spira! I hope you had a nice time in India. Tripti blend is instant coffee if I am not wrong. Like all instant coffees we need to boil a cup of water and turn off heat.Then we add milk, sugar to taste and a teaspoon of instant coffee powder. You can add or reduce the amount of coffee according to how strong you want it. If you have taken fancy to South Indian coffee then instead of water take a full cup of milk, boil it, turn off heat, add sugar and a tsp of coffee powder. Pour it from a height into your cup so that it froths. Sprinkle a dash of coffee powder on top. Enjoy👍☺
      Though I have to add here that authentic South Indian coffee is made from coffee beans and a special coffee filter which is a tricky procedure.
      The procedure I have mentioned above is best with instant coffee.
      Thank you and regards ☺

      1. Thank you so much for your great response.
        Yes, it was beyond words…loved the people. Both my wife and I agree, that the people we met are the most warm and welcoming people we’ve met as travelers.

        yes, it is an instant blend. I guess they were making it with milk, that’s why I couldn’t tell exactly how they did it.

        Thanks again! I’ll go and make me a cup & drink it to your health and happiness 🙂
