Learn how to make the best traditional Singapore kaya toast smeared with rich and creamy homemade kaya jam and cold slices of butter. It’s impossible not to like this!
KAYA TOAST WITH HOMEMADE KAYA JAM IS THE BEST THING EVER
My dad is a coffee drinker, so he always had his doses (yeah…several throughout the days) of caffeine at an old school coffee shop (Kopitiam) and he would order me some milk tea and a breakfast of my choice when I went with him. The food was super awesome! That’s like the highlight of my every visit. Seriously. I just believe I was born to love food. Like really love food! One of my favorite breakfast food from that kopi tiam was kaya toast.
I’m sure you know what toast is and I’m sorry if you are a bit lost with what the heck kaya is. Last week I posted about this creamy 10-minute easy authentic kaya jam recipe that I literally just couldn’t stop spreading on any toasts or buns I could get myself hands on. I learned about kaya toast with cold butter when I lived in Singapore for 3 years. Places like Ya Kun, Kopitiam, Toast Box, or similar coffee shops serve this type of kaya toast. So, The toast is built on kaya jam and cold butter. You read it right BUTTER! and I will not argue that butter…butter just makes everything tastes good. Even my kids know that fact!
KAYA TOAST AND SUPER SOFT BOILED EGGS
Kaya toast is usually served Kopitiam soft-boiled eggs doused in a bit of soy sauce and ground white peppercorns (it must be white pepper for me) and milk tea. All of these just seriously remind me of childhood. My mom made this soft-boiled eggs for me for breakfast every morning.
HOW TO MAKE THE BEST SINGAPORE KAYA TOAST
Get two slices of bread
Cut the crust off the bread
Toast the slices of bread in your toaster and toast until they are golden brown, slightly darker if I may put it that way
Spread the kaya generously on both sides of the toast
Cut thin slices of cold butter and arrange it on top of the toast, about 4 slices
Top with another piece of toast
Cut them into four equal sizes or you can cut it diagonally into half. The cold butter will gradually melt when it comes into contact with the heat from the toast
Are you ready to eat them? Don’t you just want to take a big bite?
The cold butter that slowly melts as you eat the toast paired with sweet creamy aromatic kaya jam is like a “foodgasm” (my husband’s comment!)
