How to make Kaya

Kaya is like jam for us, Malaysians and yours truly is a big fan of kaya.

I don't like those over-commercialised ones like the ones from Gardenia or High Five coz they tend to be too sweet. The ones sold in our local bakery are usually good enough to satisfy my tastebuds but recently,the price of everything seems to go up and the quality isn't that good anymore.

So, Chef Mel decided to make her own kaya! Armed with a cook book that was older than me! :P


You need sugar. About 300g - You can add more if you're a sweet tooth or lose some if you're diabetic.

5 Eggs, 4 pandan leaves and about 1 biji of coconut.

Beat sugar and egg till they mixed well.

After that, pour in the coconut milk till it mix well.

Then sift it so that your kaya won't be so kasar.

Put on double boil, and constantly stirring it for the first 15 minutes.

Then leave it without stirring at very low heat for about 4 hours.

Ta-da! Kaya!

The whole process was so easy although it's a bit time consuming! I'm making some more tomorrow ! yay!
