  • Oven
  • Mixing bowl
  • Cake pan


  • 175 g Gulab jamun mix (MTR brand – 1 cup roughly)
  • ½ cup Jaggery powder
  • or Brown sugar
  • ¼ cup White sugar (powdered)
  • 1/3 cup Oil (5 tbsp)
  • ½ cup warm Milk
  • ½ tsp Cardamom powder (or cinnamon powder)
  • 1 tbsp mixed chopped nuts or dry fruits or choc chips



  • Measure all the ingredients and keep ready.
  • If you have kept the pack for quite a while it is best practice to sift the flour before mixing.
  • I used 175g MTR gulab jamun mix and if you are making a bigger cake just double up the ingredients. Make sure to choose the right sized cake pan.
  • This recipe needs an 8"*4" loaf pan.


  • Take 175g of instant gulab jamun mix powder in a metal sieve. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl. It approximately measures one (US measuring) cup. Break the lumps with a spatula and sift.
  • Add 1/2 cup of fine jaggery powder. Use good quality dirt less jaggery and powder it without lumps. Instead, you can use 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar.
  • Next, add 1/4 cup of powdered white sugar.
  • Put 1/4 tsp of cardamom powder or cinnamon powder.
  • Mix the dry ingredients well.
  • Measure and add 1/3 cup of flavorless cooking oil(approximately 5 tbsp).
  • Add 1/2 cup of warm milk.
  • Now mix the dry and wet ingredients completely.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven to 365F(180C).
  • Pour the batter into a greased or lined loaf pan. Tap it gently to remove the air bubbles and level the top.
  • Bake the jamun mix cake for up to 30 minutes until done. Check after 20 minutes once with a toothpick. Bake until it comes out clean.
  • Baking time differs based on the oven and baking pan.
  • Let the cake cool down a bit and shift it to a plate to make slices.
  • Serve this warm or cold as you wish. Shelf life is two days and inside the refrigerator stays good for a week.



1) Firstly use a good quality readymade jamun mix and sift before baking.
2) You can use full Jaggery powder for a darker and moist cake.
3) There is no need for leavening agents like baking powder or soda as the mix itself has enough raising in its premix.
