In its place of origin, the Bangka-Belitung Islands, Bangka martabak is also known as Hok Lo Pan, which means it’s a Hoklo people’s cake.

- Pandan Roll Martabak
Resembling a Swiss roll, but not quite a Swiss roll? Yes, that’s the pandan roll martabak. This martabak is an innovation of the usual sweet martabak with a slightly different presentation. With the addition of pandan essence to the dough, this martabak looks even more beautiful and tempting. Delicious!
- Black Martabak
Why is the martabak so dark? Well… the darkness of this martabak doesn’t mean it’s burnt. Black martabak intentionally has black coloring in its dough like black cocoa powder, black forest powder, or charcoal powder. Not only does it make the martabak more visually appealing, but the addition of these powders also apparently enhances the unique aroma and flavor of the martabak.
