The adorable Christmas treats – Gulab jamun cupcakes

Gulab jamun cupcakes

Cool weather, festive air, sound of jingles and happiness around. Goa is ready to usher in Christmas. It is the time of the year to be happy and spread cheer around.

Goa is at its best during Christmas. Most of the streets are decorated with lights, posters and paintings of Santa Claus and Nativity scenes adorn the glass walled shops around, stars light up in many of the households and Noel decorations flood the market. Christmas parties, fetes and exhibitions are held in most parts of this State. Not to forget, the varied traditional sweet treats which abound in the local markets.

I love this season in Goa and try to bake many goodies during this time of the year.

Here comes one such delicious sweet treat – gulab jamun cupcakes. Made with some of the basic cake ingredients including our very own gulab jamun mix. Earlier, I had posted the recipe for gulab jamun mix cake. The same batter is used to make these easy cupcakes.

The subtle aroma of the ‘oh so dear’ gulab jamuns mingles with the sweetness and gentle crunch of tutti frutti to create a magical culinary experience!
