If you've got a sweet-tooth like us, you know the pains of scrambling through your fridge, freezer and ingredients just to find any semblance of something sweet.
With just three affordable ingredients and 20 minutes to spare, you can create a warm, gooey and crispy delight that is the perfect cross between a croissant and Singapore's favourite local breakfast.
For this recipe, you'll need:
Kaya Spread (Click here to find out where you can get Fong Yit's Lower Sugar Kaya)

2. Scoop a generous dollop of Fong Yit's Kaya spread onto the middle of the pastry sheet and fold the ends to sell it. You can use a fork to crimp the edges, so that the filling does not leak out.
3. Lightly beat an egg and glaze your pastry with the beaten egg. This will give the puff the additional crispiness and golden-brown look that most baked goods have.

4. Place your puffs in your preheated oven (190°C) for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
And that's how you make Kaya Puffs (AKA Kaya Poks)! No tips or tricks — it's really that simple. If you're looking to indulge, you could even add a knob of butter in your kaya filling for a buttery and flaky pastry!
