Batik cake (Malay: Kek batik) is a type of non-baked Malaysian cake dessert. This cake was made by mixing broken Marie biscuits combined with a chocolate sauce or runny custard made with egg, butter/margarine, condensed milk, Milo[1] and chocolate powders.[2] The cake is served during special occasions like the Eid al-Fitr and Christmas.[3]


The origin of this type of cake is somewhat uncertain; it is similar to hedgehog slice and the latest Prince William chocolate biscuit cake, although with some different ingredients.[3] As Malaysia and Brunei were once colonies of Great Britain, it is believed the cake was introduced by the British. In Brunei, their Batik cake is covered by green colour topping.[4]
