Pancake Weekly #4: My kind of jam



Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best. Just like how each and everyone of us has a simple comfort food we can always fall back on. The smell of a warm loaf of bread or the bitter sweet taste of dark chocolate may swoon some while the soft chunk of pork belly or a huge tub of Ben & Jerry's may appeal to others.

Its the time when fine dining would suddenly sound boring and unappetizing. Plus, who really cares for salads or chicken breasts when you're feeling in the dumps right?

In my case, the combination of pandan and coconut never fails to get my attention and the best thing that ever resulted from that mix?

Kaya.



Its plain, its simple, its good. That's all I need for my fix. In this week's Pancake Weekly, I'm talking about plain Jane. She's simple, she's real nice with average looks but somehow, I've got the hots for her. Who really needs sophisticated chicks anyway?

There you go. A good douse of coconut jam slapped between two pancakes. Perfect breakfast for a Sunday morning.

PS: Since we're talking about comfort food, why not tell me what's yours? I'd definately interested in hearing about it.

Hey u know the magic ingredient that makes kaya special is EGG?

How do you make the pancake from scratch? You should set up a stall!
