Couple of days ago, photo of this Malaysian pastry appeared on my facebook feed. Since there are some left-over baking ingredients from xmas and new year, I couldn't resist baking again!
Kaya literally means rich in Malay ; while in the food dictionary it is known as a type of Coconut custard
Go check out the recipe and step-by-step at My simple food
I'm satisfy with this recipe. with some tweaking :-
1) Butter sold over here is unsalted ; hence, I would add 1/4 tsp of salt to bring the pastry to life.
2) Additional 10 mins. in the oven to further brown the pastry.
