[These recipes were part of a series of ads in the Kuokoa (and in papers across the United States as well). It is a good way to get cooking descriptions in Hawaiian!
The English for the main parts of the recipes came from "The New Royal Cookbook" put out by the Royal Baking Powder Company in 1920 (which is the cookbook mentioned in this ad which they are giving away free if you mail away for it). It is provided online by Project Gutenberg!]
