Mokie

When we were at the Bentong market, my friend bought some pastries from a stall outside the market. She read from some blogs that the pastries can't be found any where else and are quite special. I do not know how much she paid for her two bags of kaya pastry and pineapple pastry but she let me tried one of each.

Mokie Home Baked Pastry

The size is about 4 cm x 7 cm x 2.5 cm so it is quite big. The crust is quite soft. This one has kaya fillings.

Thick home-made kaya fillings, not very sweet so is very tasty if you like to eat home made kaya with its strong egg and coconut milk taste 

Same size but with a red dot to mark it as having pineapple fillings inside. The crust is soft too.

The fillings are not as thick as the kaya ones but taste very nice because its pineapple fillings are sweet and sour like plum sauce. I think I can detect preserved plum taste in the fillings. Very special indeed both of them.

  2. I want to try both! I love homemade kaya, and not the commercial ones like we can find in mini-marts and convenience stores.. I love those from Nyonya stalls or bakery (I judge from their colour and texture, haha)..

    1. Homemade kaya is more fragrant with strong egg and santan taste.

  3. I'd love the one with the thicker pastry - I'm not like some who'd go for very very thin pastry skin with almost all filling. I enjoy eating good pastry...with the filling, of course - a perfect balance!

  8. Oh, they're very "tai fong" with the kaya filling. If it's not sweet, I like :)

  9. Oh yes, I do love to eat kaya! I used to curi curi eat them by itself, by the spoonfuls, when I was a kid. I did not know it would be obvious and was perplexed that my mom always found out!

    I think I will love this kaya pastry!

    2. Can you still eat peanut butter by the spoonfuls?

    3. RG, your mother is smart or you have a smudge of kaya on your face after curi curi makan the kaya.

    4. Actually, no. Now that I buy and manage my own kaya, I realize it is really very obvious. When I dig a spoonful out as a kid, I did not try to flatten that hole up so every time my mom sees the kaya container, she can see that spoon mark and I will kena! >.<
