Gulab jamun cupcakes – Make your favorite gulab jamun a real show stopper with these easy to make and fun cupcakes recipe. Cardamom-spiced cupcakes are topped with decadent buttercream, and are finished with gulab jamuns to create these cute festive treats.
To be very honest, I’m going through another “super busy” phase. I really feel like the days are too short, and I have a yard long to-do list. However, it’s not going to stop me from telling you all about these super cute cupcakes.
Well, these gulab jamun cupcakes have been on my mind for a while now. But, I have been waiting for the right time to share it with you. And now that Diwali (Indian festival of lights)is here, I think this is the best way to add more fun and sweetness to your celebrations.
Do you like gulab jamuns, the Indian style fried doughnuts soaked in sugar syrup? Oh, I love them. As these gulab jamuns are the stars of this recipe, I made a batch of my favorite easy peasy bread gulab jamuns. (Get the recipe here). If you’re time-poor, you can use store bought jamuns. On the other hand, if you are planning to go with homemade ones, make small jamuns that’ll look perfectly cute on the cupcakes.
The cupcakes are basically a variation of my favorite vanilla cupcakes. Brown sugar adds a rich flavor to the cupcakes, and I used ground cardamom to add more flavor. I really wanted to add a flavor punch to the buttercream frosting. So I decided to add a pinch of ground cardamom to it. Just perfect.
Is there a better way to celebrate this week than with these cute gulab jamun cupcakes? I’d say, ‘no’.
