how did you cook it ? in a wok or slow cooker or double boil or breadmaker style?

because each style will affect the texture.

Hi lilian2000,

I just made another batch yesterday. After it's done in the bread maker, it's lumpy and there is sugar water. I used a stick mixer to blend mine. After blending, it's more liquid, but when put in the freezer, it will be more firm up.

Coincidentally, my very good friend (not a member of this forum) shared this recipe with me this afternoon. Then, I read this thread! I must try especially after reading all the success stories. I will use my slow cooker & just sit back & relax while waiting for the delicious kaya that melts in the mouth. This would make hubby a very happy man as he loves kaya! Hope mine turn out well!

Just joined this forum recently and decided to try out the kaya recipe by using ordinary rice cooker yesterday. That was my first time cooking kaya.

I've bought a coconut and extracted its milk. The coconut milk was a bit watery. Perhaps should soak the shredded coconut with water a bit longer. I just whisked with other ingredients for a while and then cooked them in the rice cooker.

Once the 'cook' button popped up, I had a shock when lifting up the rice cooker cover. That didn't look like kaya but more like lumpy steamed egg with some part being burnt & stuck to the rice cooker bowl. Decided not to follow the rest of steps but just blended the 'lumpy egg' after it has cooled down.

Managed to get the smooth texture but with dark brown burnt dots. Now it looks more like kaya. However, it is a bit dry but tasted good. Just like the kaya I love to eat.

Thanks for the recipe and cooking technique.

I was so tempted and tried it too. Results was quite good and tasty but a bit too liquid.

Do I need to add plain flour to make it more gluey? Appreciate your advice.

Hope to try more new recipes here.

Thanks!

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.


I happened upon this slow cooker kaya thread last week and decided to try out tthksy's recipe, taking into account the various reviews, etc, of course Very Happy. I am so happy to report that I made it yesterday and it turned out to be one of the easiest and best kaya I've made (and I have made it using different methods, like the stove top, double boiler and microwave).

I adjusted recipe as follows :-
1 cup eggs
1 cup coconut cream (I just used canned ones as fresh coconut is difficult to get here in Melbourne)
1 1/2 cups white sugar (but I think I will try reducing it next time to 1 cup or at the most, 1 1/4 cups as it is quite sweet).
1 pandan leave (knotted)

Used a stick blender to blend all ingreadients (except pandan leave) and then sieve into crockpot bowl. Because my littly crockpot does not have temperature control, what I did was to zap this mixture in the microwave for 2 mins (zap 1 min, stir, zap another minute) just to give it a head start as I only started making it at nearly 5pm in the afternoon and didn't fancy staying up past midnight waiting for it to finish Cheeky grin. Then I just added in the pandan leave, turn crockpot on and about 6 hours later, turned crockpot off, remove pandan leave, gave it a whiz with the stick blender, voila, perfect kaya with a greenish tinge. Hubby asked how come not brown!! Mr. Green. But taste wise, lovely.

Am thinking that next time I might try caramelising the sugar and then diluting it with some coconut milk (hence cooling it) before beating in the eggs just to get the brown kaya grin. Anyone tried that before?

I have been making kaya using a bread machine. The end result is usually lumpy. To get a smooth and creamy kaya, I would then blend the lumpy kaya using a blender.

i think for the reddish brown kaya...you should use brown sugar instead.

actually, its not brown sugar. Its still the regular white sugar, slowly cook till it caramalises.
