Caramel Kaya

I saw this recipes in an old microwave cook book and decided to try it out. I used only half the recipe. It did not turn out well and so I don't bother to take picture. I think I over cooked the sugar. I should have reduced half or less the cooking time as I only used half the recipe. I reduced the sugar too much as well and it did not turn out sweet. Kaya should be sweet and not to worry about health because we used it only as a spread. and we eat only a bit each time . In the end, it went to the bin LOL.
On the whole I think this is a good way to make caramel preparation for other recipes.
