Creamy Chocolate Kaya Recipe. Great As A Bread Spread.
This is a special Kaya recipe that I modified from my grandma's recipe. It's also known as coconut egg jam.
I have fond memories of home-made Kaya from my childhood days. My grandma used to make them with caramelised sugar. Then my dad took over the making for as long as I can remember. Back then, you don't buy it from the shop, because it taste best when it's home-made.
And with my love for chocolate, I've improvised it a little to turn my caramel Kaya into chocolate flavoured. The eggs and coconut milk gives it a really rich aroma. You'll love it.
250 ml thick fresh Coconut Milk (Santan)
480 gm Sugar
50 gm Cocoa Powder
- Whisk eggs in a bowl until the yolk is broken. strain the eggs.
- Pour sugar and egg into the top of a double boiler. Keep the water of the bottom part of double boiler simmering at low heat. Use a whisk to continuously stir the egg and sugar mixture until all the sugar is dissolved.
- Add in coconut milk and increase heat to medium. Continously stir the mixture in the double boiler until it coats the back of your spoon. It will thicken after cooling.
- Remove from heat and store in a jar when it is cooled. It can keep for a few weeks in the refrigerator.
Quick and Easy Tips:
To prevent the kaya from cooking too fast and getting all lumpy, continously stir the mixture over low heat.
