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.

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.

Are you Gluten Intolerant?

Monday, January 24th, 2011

I caught a glimpse of a segment on Good Morning America about gluten intolerance. 1 out of 7 people have some form of intolerance even as severe as Celiac disease, most not even knowing it. The segment featured Elizabeth Hasselbeck, author of The GFree Diet. She talks about symptoms such as stomach pain, and fatigue, to migraine’s and the inability to conceive. Gluten is found most commonly in products using wheat, barley, and rye. It can also be hidden in marinates, gravies, and soy sauce. To learn more check out or pop into healthy hut and see the great assortment of products that are gluten free.

We get fresh delivery’s from Island Sol Bakery our favorite local gluten free bakery.
