Mummy loves kaya and this has been on list for a week or so... I finally got done to making this bottle of pandan kaya since I was free today. Gosh, the smell of freedom excites me. I slept early last night without setting an alarm for this morning. I had my fill of sleep so I was pumped up for baking.
I made use of the bread machine the hubby got for me a long time ago. It's a Kenwood BM 250. I made use of the jam function to make this Kaya. This kaya is relatively simple to make and it's really fragrant. I'd rate it a difficulty level 2 out of 5 and it takes about 1.5 hours in all to make.
Pandan Kaya Recipe
makes 1 bottle of jam
3 eggs (55-60g each)
320g castor sugar (already reduced)
8 blades of pandan leaves
350ml coconut milk
All ingredients to be of room temperature
Cut and wash the pandan leaves
Add pandan leaves to coconut milk and blend
Add eggs to sugar
Whisk gently to combine till sugar dissolves
Sieve coconut pandan mixture into egg mixture
Whisk gently to combine
Pour into bread machine and chose jam mode. I'm using Kenwood BM 250.
Mixing for this model will only occur in the first 5 minutes. It'll cook the jam after that. Do give it the occasional stir. My kaya was grainy after cooking likely because I used cold coconut milk. Blend it to bring it to a smooth mixture (I used my food processor). Pour into a glass jar and allow mixture to cool before closing the lid and storing in the fridge.
The kaya was really fragrant and not too sweet. It's best consumed within 3 days and probably a max of a week with refrigeration. Have fun with it!
