  • Yield 4 servings
  • For Easy Kaya:
  • 250 millilitres Coconut milk
  • 2-3 Pandan leaves
  • 150 grams dark Brown sugar
  • 4 Egg yolks
  • 1 large Egg
  • 75 grams Butter, cut into pieces
  • For French Toast:
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 250 millilitres 2% Milk
  • 8 slices day-old Egg bread
  • 200 grams flaked sweetened Coconut
  • Butter for the pan
  • Fresh fruit, as garnish
  1. Heat the coconut milk in a small saucepan over medium heat with the pandan leaves for about 4 minutes (to draw out the flavor). Remove the pandan leaves and discard. Add half of the brown sugar to the coconut milk and whisk in to dissolve
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks, whole egg and remaining half of the brown sugar. In a separate bowl, have the butter ready with a strainer placed over the bowl. Slowly pour the hot coconut milk into the eggs while whisking the eggs constantly. Transfer this back to the pot and whisk over medium heat until thickened, about 4 minutes. Pour this through the strainer over the butter and whisk until the butter has melted. Cool the kaya to room temperature, then cover and chill completely until ready to use
  3. For the French toast, whisk the eggs in a flat dish and then whisk in the milk. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add a little butter, enough to coat the pan when melted and swirled. Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture and then dip one side into the coconut to coat. Place the bread slices, coconut-side at the bottom, in the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat in batches until all the French toast has been cooked (French toast can be held in a 160 C (325 F) oven to keep warm
  4. To serve, arrange the French toast on plates (you can cut the toast in half, if you wish) and spoon the Kaya generously overtop (a little extra dish of Kaya on the side might be nice – it’s delicious!). Top with fresh fruit and and serve

Alternatively, serve the French toast with the Kaya alongside poached or fried eggs
