Hello!! It has been months since I last updated my blog. I was back on track in October last year after some months of disappearance. Then, I published a few posts. Without much realisation, we are now in 2015. Well, Happy New Year! (pretty late to say this!)
I really don’t know where to begin. Since my last post, there has been a big change in our lives! We are now proud parents of a baby boy! That explains my lack of activities on the blogging end. Though I update my Facebook and Instagram from time to time.
Taking care of a newborn isn’t easy! It has been really challenging and I realise I have less time to blog. I’m still in the process of establishing my little boy’s schedule. I guess, once his schedule is more established, it will be much better and I’ll have more time updating my blog. Though there will be less updates on here, I promise, I will never give up blogging! 🙂
Last week, I made my favourite food spread – Kaya also known as Serikaya, that is made of coconut milk, eggs and sugar. Kaya literally means rich in Malay language because of its taste and texture. Pandan leaf is one of the ingredients that is used to flavour the jam. Sometimes, it is also used as colouring. Therefore, you will come across Kaya that looks green as pandan extract is added. The other variation, which is brown, is done by adding caramelised sugar.
Kaya is typically used on toast and served as breakfast. Sometimes, it is served with some desserts that are made with glutinous rice.
I love to have it with toast – the fragrant of coconut milk and pandan are just match made in heaven! It takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to make the below recipe – but it is silky smooth! I’m going try out a quicker method, where you put all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over low flame. Meanwhile, you can give this recipe a go! It makes two 370g jam jars. Kaya is so addicted that we managed to finish both bottles in less than 2 weeks!
