Bread Maker Butter Cake

Have you ever try to bake cake with bread maker? I still remember, one of the attractive point of this new bread maker is the "bake cake" function. I wonder how will the cake taste with this super lazy method. No baking tool (except weight machine) is needed. What you need to do is to dump everything into the machine and press few buttons. That's all!

 

Green Island Western Food | Bayan Lepas, Penang

Not long ago, there is one newly open western food restaurant open at The One, Bayan Lepas. Feedback from friends that they serve reasonable price range western food, just like James Foo. Although I am Penangite, but experience to dine in James Foo is only once. But that one time experience gave us a good impression on the food and price range. Due to far distance from home, we seldom have chance to visit there often. Hence this newly open restaurant is a good place for us to visit as it is nearer to our company and house. Wifi is available in the restaurant.

Kaya_11"kaya" is a jam made with coconut milk (santan), sugar and eggs. Pandan leaves are added during cooking process to bring more fragrance to the jam.

I have this homemade kaya recipe from my mother while she made kaya jam last Sunday. The ingredients used are very simple but I was impressed with her patient during the cooking process. It was really time consuming to make the delicious kaya. You need to stir the mixture continuously during the cooking process in order to get the smooth texture kaya.

If this time consuming version does not suit you, go for this version, which only required less than 30 minutes to get your kaya jam ready.

Let's go into the ingredients and cooking method now.


Ingredients:
10 eggs
900g sugar
1kg coconut milk
pandan leaves (wash)

Method:

1. Beat 10 eggs into a big pot. Stir!

9. Serve with bread or biscuit as you like.

The whole process took about 4 hours. Patient and hardwork are needed to make it successful. I believed most of the people will rather buy it outside. Tongue out But, I did appreciate the time and effort that mom spent to make the delicious kaya jam for her family. Thank you mom Kiss ! It was soooooo delicious and "sweet". Wink

Hi Phyllis, thanks for dropping by. According to mom, it is necessary to ladle the mixture into a bag first if you want your kaya to have a smooth texture.

Hi, I am so excited to have found this recipe! Thank you for posting it! I remember my aunties making this and have wanted to make it myself.

I noticed that in one of the photos, the jam seemed to be ladled into a bag? Can you tell me if that is necessary to do?

Thank you

Hi

I would like to know when you double boiled the kaya, in step 8,

1) do you cover the pot with the kaya and also the double boiled pot?
2) how long do you double boiled it?
3) do you open it regularly to stir it?

Looking forwad to your answers.

TQ.
