Gulab Jamun Cake



This week is a birthday week at my place.My husband, my brother, mom and dad,all celebrate their birthday this week .So i decided to make a cake for all of them .I read about this type of cake in some magazine but forgot to note down the recipe .But i decided to try this on my own .Trupti was right in guessing .It is gulab jamun cake .Very simple and straight forward cake .......

Raw Materials Required


1 pkt for Gulab Jamun mix
3/4 Cup -Whipping Cream
1 Angel Cake
3 cup - Vanilla Ice Cream

Preparation style


Prepare the gulab jamun as stated in the instruction of the mix.Cut 3 portions of the angle cake vertically.First lay the bottom portion of the cake and make a circle in the middle of the cake and remove the cake pieces from that area.The circle should be thick enough so that the gulab jamuns would fix inside them .Then arrange the gulab jammuns one by one in the center.Then drizzle some of the sugar water on top of them.Then lay the second layer of the cake .One the top of them spread the vanilla ice cream evenly.Then place the gulab jammun on top of the ice cream .Then place the last layer of the cake .Cover the entire cake with the cool whip cream.Drizzle chocolate syrup on top .So her you go Gulab jammun cake is ready ......

I have only had gulab jamun at Indian restaurants and I always thought they would be so good with a little ice-cream! What a wonderful idea! Sounds soooo good!

Deepa,

I love the combination of gulab jamun and ice cream, but I never saw it in a cake!

Was there any left that day, or was all of it eaten up?! How does it keep?

Vini K said...

Hmm.,very interesting.Nver in my life have I heard of this one.Looks so simple to make too!

Anonymous said...

Hai the cake is really great, and my too late belated wishes to all ur bday members
i have small doubt about how the icecream does not melt,is it that we should arrange the cake just before cutting and cant we make it and keep it in fridge one day before,pls let me know i am intereted to do it

Deepa said...

sorry anonymous ...i am really late ...been a very busy week .The ice cream does not melt that quickly .You can make the cake and keep it in the fridge and then cut it .But the point is depends on the cake Whether it states moist.So it is better to arrange and cut it after few hours ...so that the liquid if the gamun sinks it ...Hope it is now fine with you ..

Deepa said...

Thankyou arts, madhavi,viji ,shn and vini..Do please try it once ...

rahin said...

very innovative of u , hope u all had a nice bday
