Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片


I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!






Kaya Slice ~   咖椰片
Ingredients
  • 2 pieces of 8 inch sq frozen puff pastry
  • Homemade kaya/coconut egg jam
  • Icing sugar to dust
Method
  1. Defrost the frozen pastries.
  2. Place a puff pastry onto a parchment lined pan.  Prick holes with a fork to prevent it from blowing up.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 15 to 20 mins. till brown.
  4. Remove from oven and place a pan on top and gently press down to give a flat surface.
  5. Repeat with the other pastry.
  6. Cut pastry into 2 halves to make 4 halves.
  7. Spread a  generous amount of kaya on one half of the pastry and place another half sheet on top.  Repeat.
  8. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
Here's wishing everyone a very Happy Lunar New Year with abundance health, luck and prosperity!
