Kaya is a jam made with coconut, egg and caramel. It is very popular and easily available in Malaysia and Singapore. In Singapore, Kaya Toast is a delicacy snack or breakfast item and sold in any local coffee shops. It is a combination of toasted bread, kaya, melted butter or cheese etc. and very crispy on the outer part and creamy in the inner.
When I came to Singapore, Vijoo introduced me to this breakfast item and I love its crispy and creamy taste at the first bite. After that I loved to eat it frequently as breakfast or an evening snack. Gradually I realized that it was very easy and simple to make at home. From that day I started to store kaya bottle in my refrigerator π . Yes! We can get different flavoured kaya in Singapore super market. Even the taste of spread kaya on bread is also very tasty and yummy. I love that taste too π
In my home, Vijoo and kids want to go office and schools early morning and they refused to eat heavy breakfast.So these kinds of recipes are filling for them and very easy and helpful for me.
Normally Kaya toasts made with butter slices, it is very tasty but for the healthy choice I prefer cheese slice instead of butter. So now I share that recipe here with my hubby’s break fast platter π Enjoy π
