I have tasted a traditional kaya which is so yummy. I heard no flour is added just only eggs and coconut. Anyone got this recipe? I really wish to try it.

Hi

this is a passed down recipe

1 cup coconut milk
1 cup eggs
2 cup sugar.

- Taste good but kinda sweet. I usually cut down the sugar. If you have pandan leaves, add them to the mixture, take out when cook. I cannot get it over here, so have to omit it.

Stupid question: Do you literally crack eggs into a measuring cup till you get 1 cup?

Del

I think you have to. 1 cup of eggs with shells on will probably be 2 eggs as it cannot custom-fit it into the shape of the cups.

I tried making kaya this morning using the slow cooker before going to work. Well it turn up very beautiful. As I was abit impatient..., after the kaya mixture turns abit lumpy but still watery, I send the whole batch to the non-stick pot and cook directly under fire. I realise that what makes the lumps gone is to stir it with a handwhisk... My kaya turns out beautifully smooth.

For the ingredients, I used 10 eggs, 510g castor sugar and 400ml of cold coconut milk in packet form (can get fm NTUC) and 3 - 4 strips of pandan leaves. I just mix everything together and whisk till well mixed. Then I sieve it and then put everything in the slow cooker. I only remove the pandan leaves when kaya turns lumpy and thickz

It is really simple!!

Hi Rachel

On high I put in the slow cooker for 3 hours... then after become lumpy (but still abit wet), I cook it under direct fire... small fire for about 5 - 8 mins but must keep using a handwhisk to stir and stir so it will become smooth. My family tastes it this morning and said it is nice. i find it abit too sure. Maybe sugar can be reduced to 450g instead of 510g.

hope that answers yr question.

Hi jewels, rachelokh & makan_kaki

Usually I use low temp, so takes about 7-8 hours or until it turns brown color.
I will put it in before I goes to sleep, everything done in the morning. If too lumpy, get a hand blender and blender it. everything will be smooth.

No particular instructions, I will whisk the eggs & sugar together till sugar dissolve. Add coconut milk, stir till even and pour all into slow cooker. The yield will depend on the size of the cup, I use a 400 ml can coconut milk. It yields about 3 Skippy peanut butter bottles.

Kaya sounds really yummy. I've got to try it when I have a couple of hours free (probably in the summer). I have no idea how I'm going to finish so much though. 3 skippy jars? Gee, I'm going to have to send samples to everyone I know before the kaya spoils.

Thanks for the recipe tthksy. I made it just now using my breadmaker, jam option and completed in less than 2 hrs. Tasted great. I only put 1.5cups sugar but still find it a little bit sweet. Next time will reduce the sugar further. Very happy with the end result Smile

Is the finished product green or dark brown? Dunno how to tell.. since my slow cooker only has Auto and High setting, I used auto and stir occasionally.

No problem Smile Just to let you know that I transfer the kaya into a pot and use the whisk to get rid of the lumps.
