Customer Recipe: Merlin’s Jungle-Style Ulu Cookies

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Ulu (breadfruit) is a starchy food grown in the tropic regions of the world.

Excerpted from Living More Closely with Spirit of Nature. Available at:

Sticky, gooey, ripe ulu (breadfruit) can be a mysterious element to engage the first
time. It looks slightly like roof tar yet tastes yummy, sweet with super-fine fibers
persisting after the sweetness melts in the mouth like a wad of chewing gum.
Breadfruit is perfect when it is soft, sweet, and sticky. As soon as it gets a tangy
bite in the flavor or loses its tenacity with mushiness it is overripe and shouldn’t
be used. Remember sticky and sweet. Usually the color also changes with
over-ripeness, looking wet and custardy rather than doughy. (more…)

Ulu Chocolate Cake (Gluten-free & Vegan)

Living here in Hawai‘i, we find some very interesting fruits. Breadfruit or ulu, as it is also known, is a very unique one indeed. You can usually find the round green ulu at the local farmers market or health food store. Recipes most often call for a hard, young breadfruit but for my recipe here we will need one that is ripe and soft.

This recipe came out of a happy accident and some experimentation. I had originally planned to use a green ulu a try out another recipe, but I waited too long and it got soft. Frugal girl that I am, I refused to waste it so I cut it open and tasted the soft flesh. I noticed it was naturally sweet but a little bitter. I then just went with my adventurous spirit and began to add some fresh ripe apple bananas, honey, carob and cacao powders and other stuff. I noticed that the batter was very elastic and almost cake-like so I decided to throw it in the oven to see what would come of it. (more…)
