Kaya Glorious Kaya

We swore never to do it again

But our memories too short

Our mind too frail

We had forgotten how laborious the task was

1 kg of sugar

3 pint of coconut milk

18 eggs

6 hours of monotonous stirring

It was painful

It was sinful

But it tasted so good

the texture was simply puuurfect

We were proud

Malcolm was delighted

for this is his favourite spread for bread

Nutella can only come second

and of course

he had to lick everyΒ  single pandan leaves dry

when we fished them out from the pot

    I have a friend who once tried kaya in Malaysia could never get enough of it. She is from Laos and thus cannot find it there…so I end up shipping some to her every now and then! hahaha….maybe should pass her the recipe instead.

    Rachel : hey Ann, yeah i think u should pass her the recipe. It is really simple, just need some patience πŸ™‚

    So the nutella container is just a ‘container’, and not that nutella produces Kaya now eh?! *laugh* silly me! I could have got the hint from the picture… *laugh*

    I think you are a very talented lady… your hubby is such a lucky guy!

    Rachel : Hey angeline! thanks, it’s called ‘desperation’ πŸ˜‰
