Kaya toast is a well-known breakfast item in Singapore. It’s simple, shiok, and really enjoyable any time of the day. What we feel is key in this dish is the kaya, which we will teach you how to do this at any time of the day in the comfort of home under 30 mins or less.
Not only is kaya simple to prepare, it is also really enjoyable to make breakfast with love for those close to you too! It might be worth mentioning that there are two types of sugar used, palm sugar and the typical regular sugar. Our recipe, is closer to the caramel coloured version, instead of the usual green ones, the intense flavour of the coconut cream with the palm sugar, really makes for a great coconut caramel tasting kaya. Now let’s get cooking!
