Usually, gulab jamun is fried, but this recipe bakes the gulab jamun. Make gulab jamun batter just like you make cake mix. To bring in the core elements of gulab jamun, add cardamom powder along with other ingredients for the cake batter. Bake it till is done with a bright brown colour that matches the colour of gulab jamun.
Gulab jamun is incomplete if it is not dunked in luscious sugar syrup. Make the syrup separately with sugar, water, lemon juice, cardamom, and saffron. Poke holes in the cake with the help of a fork and pour the syrup all over the cake while it is still warm. Let it rest for 10 minutes; the cake will absorb the syrup. The gulab jamun cake will keep good for a couple of weeks. This homemade gulab jamun cake is garnished with a layer of chocolate ganache and sliced nuts. But, you can choose to decorate it the way you like.
