Kaya Jam

Kaya toast is widely recognized as a national breakfast dish of Singaporeans, in which the toasted bread is filled with butter and kaya, a jam made from eggs, sugar, coconut milk, and pandan leaves.

Ask any Singaporean what their ideal breakfast is and many will mention the homely meal of pale green kaya spread on buttered toast, occasionally accompanied by jiggly soft-boiled eggs and a dash of dark sauce.


Kaya, also called Srikaya (from the word meaning “rich” in Malay based on its golden color) or coconut jam, is made from coconut milk and eggs, flavored by pandan leaf and sweetened with sugar. The spread is sometimes in brown, if you caramelize the sugar.

Making kaya at home is easy yet time consuming but it’s the best bread spread we know, and it also makes a great gift.


Whatever your memory with the iconic spread is, one thing’s for sure: us Singaporeans still can’t get enough of it.
