Jamun or Java Plum is one of my most favourite summer fruit. And this Jamun Cake is what summer dreams are made of. Almond meal, olive oil, cream cheese frosting and topped with Jamun compote make this cake dream come true.
Pretty purple jamuns or Java Plum is one of the best things to happen to summer. And this Jamun cake uses them to make the best summer cake ever.
I have been wanting to bake with Jamun for the past two years. But last year all I did with the jamun I bought was make multiple bottles of Jamun infused Gin.

And this year before I got on to this crazy ride, I decided to bake with this gorgeous fruit. The color of both the compote and the marbling inside the cake is so gorgeous that you will want to keep looking at it. But don’t because it tastes better than it looks. I know it is a little hard to believe that but it really is the truth.
Another reason I love this cake is that it is totally my kind of cake. Simple and old fashioned! Dense and moist base, a no-fuss cream cheese frosting, that one can completely skip if they want. And a simple jammy compote. No fussy layers, no fancy ingredients and absolutely no fondant. So what are you waiting for? Make it soon and share a slice with me 🙂
