Muffin Recipe @

I had half a botlle of kaya (coconut jam) left after making my Heart Shaped Kaya Rolls  . At first, I thought of  preparing  a pancake stuffed with kaya but changed my mind and chose Kaya Pancake Muffin instead.

Kaya Pancake Muffin is much quicker and importantly less messy and save your time.  Just imagine, frying the pancake,  stuffing then roll them up one by one.

These are versatile, on the go and delicious meals.  There are  ways to fill up these muffin  with sweet or savory stuffing. Pancake don't have to be sweet.  You can also make incredible meals with savory pancake too.   Just omit the sugar if you opt for  savory stuffing like cooked  shredded chicken, turkey, bacon or even mushroom, spinach or garbanzo beans..   Vary your fillings with  blueberry, apple, fruit pie filling,  nutella, chocolate, peanut butter instead of kaya.

Make it lactose free by using soy or coconut milk in place of milk. Go eggless by adding 1/4 cup yogurt or 1/3 cup of apple sauce instead of an egg.
