How To: Make Kaya

Spread over thin warm toast, sometimes with a piece of unmelted butter, kaya toast (and runny eggs!) is a typical Singaporean and Malaysian breakfast affair. This coconut jam indeed has a richer flavour than other fruit jams, with a texture that’s gooey, creamy and smooth all at the same timeFreshly made kaya may not last as long as factory made ones, but it’s so much more aromatic, tasty and rewarding in terms of the experience.
