Kaya Toast

My today recipe is a most popular and considered as a breakfast staple in Singapore and Malaysia. Well known as Kaya Toast a coconut egg jam spread on a grilled plain toast. This recipe is created my locals of Singapore and Malaysia to replace the jams to give a local touch with coconut. This Kaya toast is served with local kapi (coffee) for breakfast and also as a snack. This kaya toast is a favorite as snack in street food.
 Kaya is a coconut jam with eggs and top with sugar, I tried to make it with out eggs but my husband says there is a big different with eggs and with out eggs. I didn't get the pandan leaves so I used cardamom powder to give good flavor to the jam, that also make a different flavor may be.. 
Any way he likes the jam on toast...

6. Discard the pandan leaves if using and let the kaya cool down.
7. Transfer the kaya again in to a blender and blend till smooth with out lumps.
Store kaya jam in a bottle in the fridge. This jam will stay fresh for a week in the fridge. 
Always use fresh coconut cream and milk for best results.
Kaya jam color depends on caramel so if you want a lighter color use less sugar.
Make it always like thick jam like consistency other wise your toast will become soggy...
Cold butter
1. Toast your bread and remove the crust and cut the bread in to two pieces.
2. Now spread the kaya jam on the toast pieces.
3. Cut the butter ion to thin slices and place in between two kaya toast's
4. Again heat the kaya toast for a few seconds to melt the butter lightly.
Enjoy your Kaya Toast with a cup of black coffee or tea....
