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 and chocolate powders.[1] The cake was served during special occasion like the Eid al-Fitr and Christmas.[2]


The origin of this type of cake is somewhat uncertain as it is similar like the hedgehog slice and the latest Prince William chocolate biscuit cake, although with some different ingredients.[2] As Malaysia and Brunei were once a colony of Great Britain, it is believed the cake was introduced by the British. In Brunei, their Batik cake is covering by green colour topping.[3]
