“Quick-cooking aromatic Kaya jam ready in less than 30 minutes.”
For those who aren’t staying in Singapore, Malaysia or nearby countries, you might not know what is Kaya jam. Kaya, is a sweet & creamy coconut spread made from coconut milk, eggs and sweetened with sugar. It is usually served on toast with butter slice as a great breakfast or tea time snack. It is also great as filling in bao (steamed bun) and cakes. Some Kaya will be flavored with Pandan juice or essence, but I still preferred the traditional brown color type, with just a hint of Pandan flavor instead of making it the strong flavor and in green. It’s just personal personal choice with no special reason.
Actually, I wasn’t really keen to make Kaya as we don’t usually eat this at home. Fresh homemade Kaya jam is best to consume within 5-7 days, and a most of the time, we couldn’t. So, I would only make Kaya, unless I have the right amount of yolks leftover unused. Yes, that’s the reason I made this Kaya yesterday. I left some yolks from making the flourless Nutella cake the other day! See, these recipes now come hand in hand (chuckles).
