Kaya Recipe


Kaya is a jam made from coconut milk and cream, sugar, and eggs. Imagine
Dulce de Leche with a tropical twist! Kaya is eaten all around Asia and is
usually enjoyed with bread and coffee. It has a thick and creamy consistency –
the flavor is similar to caramel, but with a punch of coconut flavor! It can also be
used as an ingredient for baked goods such as muffins, cupcakes, and cookies.
With this recipe, you can make a batch of Kaya that you can enjoy yourself or as
a nice gift for your friends and family!

Cook Time: 20 minutes
4 eggs
7 oz. refined sugar
½ cup coconut cream
¾ cup coconut milk
3 pandan leaves, tied
1 ½ corn starch
1 ½ Tbsp. water
1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the eggs, coconut milk,
coconut cream, and sugar. Mix well. Filter onto another container using
a strainer.
2. Transfer the mixture into a non-stick sauce pan and add in the pandan
leaves. Cook this over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until
cooked. Combine the corn starch and water to make a slurry and add into
the egg mixture. Add the caramel into the egg mixture and keep stirring
until you have a smooth consistency.
3. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool down. Discard the pandan
leaves and transfer to a blender or food processor. Blend until you have a
silky jam.
4. Transfer to a jar and keep in the fridge. This will keep for about a week.
