Bakpia is a food made from flour baked with a filling of mashed green beans mixed with sugar. Name of Bakpia comes from Hokkien dialect with original name Tou Luk Pia which literally means cake or bread filled with meat.

In Indonesia, this food is known as pia cake. Name of Bakpia was adopted from a typical Chinese food if you look at its historical origins, but along with its development type of Bakpia filling itself was adapted to Indonesian culture, such as by replacing it with green beans. Now, there are Bakpia filling types that have been developed with various flavors such as cheese, chocolate, green beans and durian.

In ancient times, residents of Yogyakarta, majority of whom were Muslim, changed filling in Bakpia recipe, which is pork, into green beans. At that time, they were not familiar with term trademark, so many Bakpia products sold to date are labeled with "manufacturer's house number" such as number 25, number 75 and other numbers.
