I love homemade kaya and I have not been making them ever since I have my kids.  Geesh, this is a very long time ago. 

Well, partly because I was seriously intimated by the long hours of stirring during my last attempt that I swear it wasn’t worth the effort. 

After finding out that I won’t burnt my kaya if I don’t give my 100% to watch over it and yet I can move around and do other household chores.   I am definitely sold on this idea.

Come to think about it, my kids never really tasted this jam!  With the urge to introduce new food to my kiddos, I decided to make again. 

Now do you like my creamy fuss free kaya?  My little wasn’t satisfied with I gave her a small piece to try.  She wanted a full serving on the second round.

For me, yes I am very happy with the outcome and am definitely looking forward to cooking the next batch.

Now I just need to swing by to Whampoa to get some authentic white bread to go with it. 

What you need:

4 eggs (65g)

100g sugar
60g gula melaka
250g thick coconut milk
5 pandan leaves


Over a double boiler, whisk eggs and sugar until dissolved.

Add coconut milk into egg mixture and whisk till combined.  Sieved.

Cook the egg mixture until it has thickened, stirring occassionally for 1 hours over slow heat.

Remove from double boiler and cool thoroughly.

Keep it chilled in fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Serve with a slab of butter on a toasted white bread.

Note: If you like smooth texture, give it a whiz in the blender.


  1. your bread is wicked... love the thick slab of kaya on it!

  2. Edith, your kaya looks real good! Wow, looks like your blog is up & running with all the widgets finally :)

    1. Thanks. Ya I finally figured it out. Really hair pulling activities.

  3. Must be very fragrant. I love the rich brown colour.

    1. Yes it was Lian. With the gula melaka, it added more intense flavour as well.

  4. Simply love your homemade kaya! Haven't made mine for eons!

    1. J you can do it too. I am sure yours is good as well.

  5. What an interesting recipe Edith. I know I would just love it if I had the chance to taste. I'm not sure but I think gula melaka is Palm Sugar. Am I right?

    Thank you so much for sharing, Edith...

    P.s. It isn't too late to join the Pasta Party, Edith. Let me know if you want to join. Or, just dig out those notes from that Pasta class and get boiling, lol...

    1. Yes Louise, Gula Melaka is palm sugar.

      I hope I can find my recipe to participate. Been looking for it the whole day. :(

    2. Thanks Edith. I hope you find it too.

  6. I like eating bread with kaya and butter like this...but I prefer toasted bread!

    1. Jozelyn I was afraid that I burnt my toast so the bread was very lightly warmed. Not very good with the toaster that I am having.

  7. Ma'am, may i have that piece?


Thanks for dropping by. If you have tried a recipe, do share with me your experience. It will be nice to hear from you. Cheers
