Cooking caramelised Kaya with Thermomix

Posted by Divine Chef on

This is super yummy kaya, tasting just like the good old kopi tiam brown kaya and absolutely so delish on toasted bread or absolutely divine spread on a slice of artisan bread.

Baking bread is a test of patience. For someone like me with almost no patience, it is a huge challenge to not rush. Before Thermomix, my breads were hit or miss. With the Thermomix, I can finally bake.
