Kaya Toast With Soft-Boiled Eggs

  • Large eggs, room temperature
  • Dark soy sauce
  • White pepper
  • Toasted white bread
  • Salted butter, room temperature


  1. In a medium sauce pot, combine sugar, palm sugar, coconut milk and pandan leaves. Heat until the mixture comes to a simmer and the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat to allow the pandan leaves to steep in the mixture.
