Many of the Singaporean families left this week and thanks to the wives I have more than half year supply of spices, premixes and eggs at home. After baking 3 pandan cakes (that uses almost 30 eggs) I still have about 30 in my fridge.
So I decided to make kaya using my breadmaker today, I have done it before and the results were fantastic. No more standing by the stove and stirring for 2 hours ; ))
Definitely not when I have a crawler at home now.
Try this easy peasy recipe : ))
What you need:
1 can of coconut milk (abt 400ml), fresh ones if you have it
380g caster sugar
What to do:
1. Mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl using a whisk
2. Pour into breadmaker thru a sieve to get a smooth consistency
3. Set to 'Jam' function
4. Stir (with a small non-stick whisk) every 10 mins towards the end of the cycle (when the machine stopped stirring on its own, usually the last 25mins)
5. It will get hotter towards the last 15 mins and you will notice that the kaya will curd faster. So you will have to stand by the machine and stir about every 3-5 mins. But hey, that beats standing for 2hrs right??!!!
Note 1: I do not like to add pandan leaves or paste to my kaya as I prefer the original egg fragrant especially if you use fresh eggs and coconut milk!
Note 2: If you are too lazy to stir at all, you can just let the breadmaker make the kaya and blend the mixture when the cycle is done.
