Easy-peasy Kaya

Source: Various

Easiest kaya recipe ever. As long as you get the proportions equal, ie 1 cup sugar, 1 cup egg, 1 cup coconut cream, you're on your way to kaya success. My slow cooker was a small one, so I only used 2/3 cup of each.

1. Mix beaten egg with sugar (I used Demerara brown sugar).
2. Pour into slow cooker. Pour coconut cream in. Stir.
3. Start slow cooker on low, my slow cooker did not have any dial, so it was probably on medium all the way.
4. Stir constantly. Mixture will thicken in about 2 hours or so.
5. If you do not like your kaya curd-like, blend it (discard any sugar water left i the slow cooker). Kaya will be smooth like those sold in shops.

Yummy. Many recipes use lots more sugar, this one is pretty all right as far as kaya goes. If you have pandan leaves (screwpine leaves), you may cook with them. I did not have any, and the kaya turned out fine. Best way to eat this is to spread them on toast, add a slice of butter, ooooh, great way to start the day! I spread it with butter on bread (not toast) and the mummies in school (from Thailand, Japan and US) loved the kaya sandwich.

Next day update: The boys had kaya sandwich for tea and loved it. They said it was even better straight out from the fridge. Sean had 3 slices and wanted more.
