No added sugar 'Madeleine' by Chef Gunawan
The madeleine or petite madeleine is a traditional small cake from Commercy and Liverdun, two communes located in the Lorraine region in northeastern France. Madeleines are very small sponge cakes with a distinctive shell-like shape acquired from being baked in pans with shell-shaped depressions.
Here's a healthy Madeleine by Chef Gunawan with NO added sugar using our Dragon fruit or Pitaya powder, as we've just had World Diabetes Day held yearly on the 14th November. The primary global awareness campaign focuses on diabetes mellitus with a different theme each year. World Diabetes Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the impact of diabetes on the health of people and to highlight the opportunities to strengthen the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diabetes.
