UPDATED POST ON 14 JUNE 2015

I have prepared another batch of kaya muffins using homemade caramel Hainanese kaya and the outcome is very good with the amended recipe as listed below. It is fluffier as expected.

INTRODUCTION

I do not know how to convince you that this is a nice muffin as the colour combination is not beautiful.. In fact I find that it is rather awful. Actually, I should have used caramelized Hainanese kaya which is orange in colour instead of the greenish Nonya pandan kaya…

Facebook Group members are assuring me that it looks ok and they are willing to try as they have trust with my recipe.. I have to thank them for  having confidence on me and that is why I am issuing the post today..

I have a bottle of Pandan kaya sitting in my kitchen cabinet for ages and I desperately wanted to get rid of it. Since kaya is made of sugar, eggs and coconut milk, it forms the major part of my intended muffins. Therefore, what is needed is only flour and some liquid. In my illustration, I have only used melted butter and after tasting, I found that some milk should have been added to further moisten the cake.. In addition, I have amended the recipe for better fluffiness.

As with all muffins, preparation is very easy. Just a bowl and a fork. It took me about 1/2 hour to transform the ingredients into muffins. Therefore, this recipe is very suitable if you want to get rid of your coconut jam and you are rushing for time.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.

  • Stir the melted butter, kaya and milk until well combined. Set aside. Sift the self raising flour and baking soda, make a well in the centre. Pour the Kaya mixture onto the flour. Use a spoon or fork to quickly and lightly fold it. A bit of lumps is acceptable. Transfer the batter to the muffin cups. Bake in the pre-heated oven of 180 degree Celsius for 15-20 minutes or when a skewer inserted into the muffin comes out clean.

CONCLUSION

This is a simple recipe.. If you like Kaya, you will like this. Your eventually output may look slightly different from this illustration as I have amended the recipe for a fluffier muffin.
