Kaya Butter Toast is our local people ultimate comfort food. Kaya is a traditional jam made from coconut milk, eggs and sugar. Some like to eat Kaya butter Toast for breakfast, others prefer it for tea. This toast set is usually accompanied by two soft cooked eggs eaten with a dash of dark soy sauce and white pepper. The eggs are a perfect complement to the sweet toast. The thick kopi (coffee) or teh(tea) completes the meal.
White bread is usually toast on a hot grill and spread with a generous dollop of salted butter and thick kaya.
You can eat this toast by dipping into the soft boiled eggs, and slurp the rest down. This kaya toast set is easily available everywhere in local kopitiams(coffee shops),food courts and shopping malls. But if you have sudden cravings of sweet kaya like me, you can make it at home too! This recipe doesn't require you to slave over the stove and stir the kaya for hours. Try! and you be amazed by how easy and quick you can prepare it!

Nothing can separate us from God's love! God's love is steadfast, sturdy and inseparable! Paul is utterly convinced of God's love for us that he says.....
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor ruler, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8;38-39
