Pandan Kaya Using Joyoung Soymilk Maker

My impulse on making this Pandan Kaya comes from Celes (Celestial Delish) who recently shared with us some of her delicious homemade kaya as we were both inspired by Chef Ann's mentioned on making kaya using Joyoung soymilk maker during the media preview (read more here).

Making kaya is quiet similar to the western style of making lime/lemon curd or custard where egg, sugar and in this case, coconut milk and pandan leaves are needed for it's uniquer fragrant, colour and taste. Here with either soymilk maker or bread machine that comes with "Jam" function, it actually cuts down cooking time a lot more and delicious homemade kaya will ready ready in breeze without you standing at the stove for hours stirring and keep an eye for it.

I love the natural jade green colour and taste of this Homemade Pandan Kaya. The natural green and unique aroma comes from using fresh Pandan Leaves blended with coconut milk which both can be found in either major supermarkets or wet markets.

(Make: 1 Cup  | Preparation: 10 minutes  | Cooking: 30 minutes)

250ml Coconut Milk
4 (55g) Whole Egg
120g - 150g Caster Sugar
15 Pieces of Pandan Leaves

1. Blend Pandan leaves (cut into 1cm wide pieces) together with coconut milk and strained through muslin cloth or soup bag. Set aside.

2. Whisk egg and sugar together till sugar dissolve (about 2 minutes or less). Stir in pandan coconut milk mixture and mix well.

3. Pour the mixture into Joyoung soymilk maker. Select "Jam" function. (I repeat the process twice in the soymilk maker to get a thicker texture)

4. Once done, let it stand in the machine for about 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a double-boiler (I pour it into a glass mixing bowl and simmer over a pot of boiling water till the kaya is thicker, it takes about 8 - 10 minutes)

5. Store kaya in sterilized glass jar (boil glass jar in boiling water for about 5 minutes) and keep in the fridge after completely cool down.


  1. Whoa... interesting machine! I bet you are already addicted to create something new with this maker! :) Pandan leaves give such a beautiful color!

  6. WOW impressive! homemade kaya!! can do business le!

    Hey dun mind if I add ur blog link into mine. =)

  7. Hi Ellena,

    Can you please advise what could be the reason my kaya wasn't turn up 'smooth' although I boiled in using double boiler method.. It was the same texture as I removed it from the soya maker (picture 5 in your blog).


    1. Hi Karen, Emmm did you used a hand whisk to whisk your kaya while double-boiled it? That might helps to smooth the texture but if your texture is not smooth it might due to the egg mixture too

  8. Hi,

    May i know is Joyoung soya milk maker worth buying?

    Best regards
