Steamed Bread with Kaya Jam

Steamed Bread with Kaya Jam

Do you have leftover kaya jam (coconut jam) that you received as a gift from Singapore? You can make plump steamed bread with only 3 ingredients.

Ingredients: 5 cup cakes

Cake flour
120 g
Baking powder
5 g
Kaya jam (coconut jam)
100 g
120 g


1. This is the kaya jam I used this time. I received it as a gift from Singapore.
2. Sift the cake flour and baking powder together.
3. Pour the water into the sifted dry ingredients, mix, then add the kaya jam, and combine thoroughly.
4. Fill each cup with the batter (until 70-80% full) and steam in a preheated steamer for about 15 minutes.
5. Poke a bamboo skewer in and if it comes out clean, they're done.
6. The steamed buns are filled with the aroma of the coconut milk if you eat them as-is. They're also delicious served with jam or butter.

Story Behind this Recipe

I created this bread to use up leftover kaya jam. In order to retain the fragrance of the coconut milk, I didn't use milk, eggs, or oil, and they turned out to be delicious.
