Batik cake is a type of fridge dessert which does not include any baking whatsoever! It’s probably one of my favourite desserts, and it is very easy to make. Although it might take a while before they’re actually ready to be served, the wait is totally worth it.
1 pack of Marie biscuits (or any type of rich tea biscuit!)
250g of butter
200g of Milo, Ovaltine, or Nesquik powder
3 large spoonfuls of cocoa powder
3/4 of a tin of condensed milk
Line the baking pan with parchment or baking paper so that it is easy to remove the Batik cake later on.
Cut the stick of butter into cubes. Heat it in a pot on medium heat until it melts.
Put in the Milo powder, condensed milk, and cocoa powder. Mix until it has a smooth, thick consistency.
Arrange the Marie biscuits in the baking pan. Then, pour the chocolate mixture on top of the biscuits evenly. This will be the chocolate layer on top of the biscuits.
Keep arranging the Marie biscuits in the baking pan and pouring the chocolate mixture over them to form alternate layers until all the ingredients are used up.
Place the baking pan in the fridge overnight.
Cut it into small pieces and serve!
Once you get the hang of the recipe, you can have fun with it and start swapping out ingredients. For example, instead of using Marie biscuits, you could use Oreos instead! A tip for this recipe is that the kind of butter you use really makes or breaks the outcome. You could even use Margarine, but you have to keep in mind that it will taste slightly different.
Happy baking (or refrigerating)!
