firstly ...Welcome to KC and enjoy yourself here. Watching and drooling at the same time Razz :lol:

back to your questions

Cups mentioned here are measuring cups unless otherwise stated.
Sometimes, we use Chinese rice/soup bowl to measure. So we MUST state that in our recipe posting.

So 1 cup of coconut milk is 250ml not 400ml
Large eggs usually measure up to 60g per egg
1.5 cups of sugar would be 250g x 1.5 = 375g

Look! I can do it too.

This recipe is like super simple. And i did it with my breadmaker(okay, not mine, my mummy's)! And it was done in an hour! But yes, think i would cut the sugar content to 1 cup(or 1 1/4 cup) next time(cos i used a little less than 1 1/2 cups). My bf found it a tad too sweet... But my mum thinks that its just right... haha...

By the way, really love it here in Kitchen Capers. So glad i chanced upon it while surfing ard! Been totally crazy about cooking and baking recently, but am super busy with uni, so am only allowed some time off to indulge in my hobby during the weekends. Hope to share some of my recipes here soon too! Very Happy

The kaya looks so tempting that I wanted to try. But first, I wanted to know what is the brand's name of the breadmaker machine that has jam function, or does every breadmaker has this function? Very Happy

Well, mine is kenwood. And it has this jam function. Entire cycle takes 1 hour. Gina(the 'founder' of this site) uses another brand, Bluesky.

I presume almost all the newer ones on the market now should have this function. Well, shop around and you should be able to find out more!

Hi Gina

Thot you might like to know that I've actually tried out this recipe last Thurs & came out shining like a rose (talking abt me!!). Made the kaya in a slow cooker & cannot believe how easy it was. Only ingre missing was the pandan flavour. Thks again to all you "kaya gurus" for sharing this recipe & all the tips.

Cheerio.

Just wanted to share my experience with the Crockpot Kaya -

I put
9 large eggs (carton says 50gm per egg)
1 can of coconut milk (400ml)
500gm of sugar

into the crockpot all at once and used the Braun Stick Blender to blend everything (to break up the eggs and dissolve the sugar). Then, I added 10 pandan leaves (frozen ones, washed as I could only find those at the nearby supermarket).

Switch on the Crockpot on LOW and went to bed. 8 hours later, the kaya smelt heavenly and was ready! However, the kaya looked like set egg custard. Hence, I brought out the Braun stick blender again and blended everything very well. The end result is a shiny, glossy smooth golden brown with a deep green tinge kaya that was very thick and yummy!

However, next time, I might try it with 7 or 8 eggs (it was a little too thick, in my opinion, and maybe with less sugar (say, 450gms/1 lb), and check the kaya after 6-7 hours. My crockpot has hot spots and a little bit was burnt at the side. In such a case, do not scrape the burnt bits as I did not want to spoil the whole batch of kaya.

Thank you all for sharing this wonderful recipe!!!

Hi Gina,

I have been logging on but have not had to cook much lately. Thanks for your tips - we did manage to find the chrysanthemum flowers. They had a lot (and pretty cheaply too), at the market next to Fu Lu Shou Complex (the second level with lots of dried foods).

Thank you for remembering. Very Happy

Well, i complained that the 1st time i made this, it was far too sweet for my bf's liking...


So, i changed the quantity of sugar added, and made 1.5 times the original recipe, cos i wanted to share them with my other pals...


Verdict? I didn't let the pandan leaves cook in the kaya long enough, so, the colour is a tad greyish... (hmm, i wonder why?) BUT, everyone loves it cos its much healthier cos of lesser sugar!


Well, here it is... =)



(*made the pics smaller, so it's easier on the eye... =)*)

if you want it to be more Green..then you need to use as much as 12 to 15 pcs of pandan leaves to get the nice even colour.

what I did was to blend the leaves with the coconut milk(just a bit). Then run thru a sieve to get the pandan juice.

Ahhh... Okay...


I will keep that in mind the next time i make this again! Come to think about it, i only used about 6-7 pieces of pandan leaves? Haha...


Thanks for the tip! Very Happy

Hi! I would like to find out from members who made this kaya with breadmaker. Somehow, mine has the coconut oil smell & taste... :roll: This normally happens when the coconut milk is overcooked. I used the fresh coconut milk. Did that happen to your kaya?

Would appreciate feedback, thanks.

Rgds, Connie

Got it... here it is..

actualy many years ago when i try to make kaya with electrical hotplate.. my kaya end up in lumps like this one i made today.. i thought spoil.. so i threw it away.. now i know i can blend it smooth

the egg smell was quite strong and the kaya was too thick.. is it too much eggs? or too much coconut milk? my 1 cup of egg was about 5 eggs...
