Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Sift the flour into a mixing blow, then combine with the baking powder & salt. Once dry ingredients are mixed, set the mixing bowl aside.

Combine the ‘ulu fruit, eggs, milk, and oil into a blender and mix until well blended.

Step 6
Add the sugar to the mixture and mix again until a thick batter is formed.
