Glucerna® Challenge Me for Diabetics

Diabetes is a very common word, but do you actually understand what is diabetes? Thanks to the Butterfly Project, I was invited to Glucerna® Challenge Me blogger event last month where I get to know more about diabetes and how Glucerna® Challenge Me program incorporating the new product, Glucerna, can help diabetics to manage their condition better.

Glucerna® Challenge Me is a specially designed program for people with diabetes to learn simple techniques to help them manage their diabetes with a healthy lifestyle. It helps to address three important components of managing their condition - managing blood sugar level, supporting weight management and reducing cholesterol as part of an overall diabetes management plan.

This 12-week program features a robust set of online tools and resources to provide people with diabetes with:
  • easy meal plans and recipes
  • guides on how to incorporate Glucerna into their healthy diet
  • daily exercise plans through step-by-step instructions

Glucerna is a diabetes nutrition product which provides a unique system of ingredients to help patients manage their blood glucose levels, weight and cholesterol. It can help reduce weight when used as part of an overall diabetes management plan. Best part is it can be added into any kind of food or beverages and we're so honored to have Ms. Suraiya to teach us how to bake cupcakes infused with Glucerna. (Y)

So here's the secret recipe of making Glucerna Hokkaido pandan cupcake with panda custard cream filling of 20 servings (credits to Glucerna):

Ingredient A

Egg yolks
Vegetable oil
Few drops  Pandan essence

Ingredient B
4 tbsp
Cake flour
Glucerna® powder
3 scoops
Baking powder
1 tsp
Ingredient A

Egg white


Pandan Custard Cream Filling

Custard powder
Few drops Pandan essence

Dairy whipping cream, whipped

First you need to mix all ingredient A to smooth paste in order to make the cupcake batter.

Sift ingredient B and add this into ingredient A mixture. Stir and make sure it combine well.

In a separate clean bowl, whisk the egg white to stiff foam, add in sugar gradually and continue to whisk until a stiff peak form. Fold the egg white form into the batter in 2-3 times and mix lightly until egg white is cooperated with the batter.

Then you can pour the batter into the cupcake moulds until 80% full.

Bake the cupcakes in a pre-heated oven at 170C for 15-20 minutes.

In the meanwhile, you can start preparing for the pandan custard cream filling. To make the filling, you need to first dissolve custard powder with Glucerna then cook the mixture to a thick consistency at low heat. Add in pandan essence then let the custard cool completely before fold in the whipped cream. When the cupcake is done, make a small hole at the middle and pipe in the filling and you're done! Easy peasy, isn't it? Now diabetics can have delicious cupcakes too! :D

Note: It is best to chill the filled cupcakes overnight before serving straight from the cup with a spoon.

Apart from learning how to bake delicious cupcakes which is suitable for diabetics, we also get to decorate our very own cupcakes with fresh fruits. Yummm!
