Homemade Kaya

This recipe is from my friend Sean Lim in facebook.  This shows my 2nd attempt at making Kaya.  James enjoyed it and I am sure you will like it too.

 
Simple ingredients to make our all time favourite Kaya jam.
 
Ingredients
A. Fine Sugar 150 gm
 
B.  Coconut cream 250 ml
Water 60 ml
Fine Sugar 100 gm
3 Pandan Leafs
 
C. 5 eggs beaten and strained
 
Method
1. Use a stainless steel pot.  Put in the A 150gm fine sugar and use low fire to melt the sugar. Stirring constantly with a wooden spoon till it turns golden colour.  Remove from fire.
 
 
2. Pour in the 60ml water a little by little and stirring constantly.  You will see bubbling - don't worry.  It will be good to line your table with newspapers under the pot. 
 
3.  Add in the coconut cream little bit at a time and keep stirring.  Add in the B. 100gm fine sugar and stirring constantly.
 
Leave to cool completely - this is very important.
