Singapore: Kaya Toast

Singapore | August 6, 2015 | By

We love exploring global breakfast at Food Explorer, and here’s something new! Kaya is a sweet, custardy jam made from coconut milk, eggs, sugar and flavored with pandan leaf. Pandan leaf is a little hard to find but it’s necessary for kaya. It adds a subtle flavor that, to us, is slightly nutty. Traditionally, Kaya is spread on toasted white bread along with a slab of cold butter. A soft boiled or over easy egg with a dash of dark say sauce accompanies it. Definitely worth a try if you can find pandan leaves in your area.

Here’s a recipe for Kaya Toast
