Brief intro:
Fatboybakes is doing this as a hobby. He is a Civil Engineer, albeit a non practising one, and baking, he finds, much like mixing concrete, is therapeutic. And no, there is no physical shop/bakery either. It's all here, in this wonderfully virtual world.

He is also a Realtor by day, so if you are looking for a House to go with that cake, do let him know .

Baked Pandan Cheesecake With Salty Gula Melaka : RM75

A LIL FAT MONKEY CAKE or FAT MONKEY FOR SHORT

Scientific Name : Peanut Butter & Caramelized Banana Cheesecake
Named after a good friend, A Lil Fat Monkey who designed the Fatboybakes logo, this very rich cheese cake comprises Caramelized Bananas, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Bits, in a combination that would please any monkey, or human, who loves the aforementioned ingredients.
RM80 for baked, RM75 for chilled.


BANANAS WITH CHOCOLATE AND CUSTARD TART

If you like good old comfort food, like custard, chocolate and bananas, then this tart will comfort you alright. I wanted to call it BASTART, (credit to Alilfatmonkey) but I am not sure it will go down well with the mothers ...and father...To avoid confusion with the Salty Caramel Banana Tart, please refer to this as Banana Custard. RM75

SALTY CARAMEL BANANA CREAM TART
SALTY CARAMEL BANANA CREAM TART - Salty caramel seems to be a rather "in" flavour these days, though some people find it hard to reconcile salty and sweet. This is probably a cousin of the more famous Banoffee Pie that are everywhere. RM75 for this creamy tart.

SALTY CARAMEL MACADAMIA TART
(Picture taken by Mazlim Husin)

MACADAMIA TART WITH SALTY CARAMEL. A school of macadamias drowned in sea of thick caramel, covered with a layer of dark chocolate ganache. I know, it sounds sickeningly sweet, but surprisingly, salty caramel is .... deceptively not too sweet. RM80


OOZEY (not BOOZEY) CHOCOLATE CARAMEL CAKE WITH SEA SALT


A moist, messy chocolate cake with layers of salty caramel and ganache. It's hard to make caramel sit still, much like a petulant child, so be warned, it oozes out of every pore. It's a heavy cake, about 1.6kg at least. RM80

AROMA THERAPY
AROMA THERAPY, a cake for all durian lovers. Layers of lightly flavoured durian sponge sandwiching layers of durian cream lightened by a hint of whipping cream. Let the aroma of the King of Fruits assail your senses as you cut out a slice. Requires refrigeration. RM80

LEMON PASSION
Lemon yoghurt cake with Passionfruit Curd. A moist lemony cake, with a layer of tangy passionfruit curd in the centre and top. RM75

PEANUT BUTTER BANANA CAKE (TIM'S NUTS)
Bananas and Peanut Butter, and surefire combination, if you enjoy the two ingredients. CONTAINS NUTS, obviously, so not for the "allergic to nuts" people. RM75 (approx 1.4kg)

BAKED OREO CHEESECAKE


Not revolutionary, but good old comfort food. Crushed oreos in the cake batter, reminiscent of cookies and cream ice cream. RM 70 for baked version, RM65 for chilled

SPENCER'S FOUR SEASONS

Spencer's Four Seasons Cake, or 4 Seasons for Short. Named after good friend, Spencer, on the occasion of his 3Xth birthday, and in partial drunken stupor at a Karaoke. Chocolatey with four different layers, with the option of alcohol.

RM70 for Virgin Spencer, RM75 for Boozey Spencer. Approx 1.1kg.

RUM RAISIN CHEESECAKE



Inspired by one of my favourite ice cream flavours, I figured you can't possibly go wrong with a Rum & Raisin Cheesecake. The only question was, to make it baked, or chilled. I believe that both versions would be delicious.

RM75 for Baked Rum & Raisin Cheese Cake, RM70 for Chilled Rum & Raisin Cheese Cake.

BLACK FOREST CAKE (No Picture)
Layers of Chocolate Sponge with Canned Dark Cherries, Fresh Cream and Brandy, Coated with Dark Ganache. RM80 (or RM75 if no alcohol)

RED VELVET WITH CREAM CHEESE ORCHOCOLATE CHEESE VELVET


(Picture courtesy of Lyrical Lemongrass)
This recently popularized cake contains the earthy flavours of beetroot, (and yes, RED COLOURING), the stark bitterness of cocoa, and the decadence of cream cheese, making it a rather unique combination. It is a pretty heavy cake, weight wise, approximately 1.55kg. RM75

Alternatively, opt for the Chocolate Cheese Velvet, aka THE ALAN, which is the same cake minus the RED colouring, but instead of pure cream cheese sandwiching the layers, it has a layer of dark chocolate cream, a layer of cream cheese, and topped with dark chocolate ganache.

THE ALAN
RM80 for Chocolate Cheese Velvet (The Alan)

CHILLED DURIAN CHEESE CAKE

Chilled Durian cheesecake, a best seller by far. Obviously you would need to be a fan of the King of Fruits to be able to appreciate it, so non-durian fans, stay away. The aroma is likely to linger in your car as well, so if going long distance, it might be a challenge.

RM75 subject to availability of durian


DURIAN POPPY SEED CAKE


A rich buttery cake, with real durian pulp, not essence, in the cake, littered with crunchy poppy seed. Great for those who like "real cake" kinda cakes, as opposed to moussey creamy cakes. Comes with a 250gm tub of durian cream, (pureed durian with fresh whipping cream).

RM75, subject to availability of durian
.
DAD'S BAKED MARS BAR CHEESECAKE
Why "Dad's"? Well, it's always Mum's this and Mum's that when it comes to food right?! Oh, my mum's chocolate cake, or my mum's carrot cake.....WELL, it's high time DAD'S GOT THEIR RECOGNITION!!! Hence, DAD'S BAKED MARS BAR CAKE.

A rich baked cheese cakes, with Mars Bars incorporated into the cake. The savouriness of the cheese combats the usual sickly sweetness of the Mars Bar, giving it a perfect blend of salty, sweet, chocolatey, all in one mouthful. Yes, it's one of those from the lip to the hip kinda cake.

RM75 for Dad's Mars Bar Cheesecake

Other baked Confectionary Cheesecakes:
Snickers - RM75
Kinders Bueno - RM75
Toblerone - RM80
Kit Kat - RM75
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - Subject To Availability of Reeses and Market Price

RM70 for Chilled Mars Bar Cheesecake

(Picture courtesy of A Whiff of Lemongrass)


A variety of Chocolate Mousse Cakes Contains Gelatine, as it is required to help the cake set. Chocolate Biscuit Based, either Dark Chocolate (RM70), Mint Chocolate (RM70), Jaffa (RM70), Brandy Chocolate (RM75).
Warning: Contains Raw Eggs

PAVLOVA
Pavlovas: Meringue, crispy on the outside, marshmallowy on the inside, sweetness neutralized somewhat by pure fresh cream. Depending on fruit topping, price ranges from RM75 for plain Strawberry Pavlova. The one pictured above has grapes and physalis, and costs RM75. For added blueberries, RM80
UPSIDE DOWN PEAR AND GINGER CAKE

Okay, so the Pear & Ginger is a "plagiarism" of the ones in the market, but hey, after awhile, there are only so many variations of cake that seem popular. This version, tweaked, with far less sugar, and added crytallised ginger, MUST be served with pure cream or ice cream.

RM70 per cake

TIRAMISU TORTE

Now more popularly served with caramelised nuts topping, (but you can opt for the less sweet toasted almonds and cocoa powder alternative), this universal favourite of mascarpone cheese in between coffee chiffon cake, yummm. However, warning, the ingredients are all fresh, like fresh cream etc, so it melts very easily. If you cannot get it to a fridge within 1/2 an hour, you better tell me, so that some gelatine might have to be added.
RM80 with brandy, RM75 without.

Have omitted raw egg yolks from the recipe.



TEA TIME SCONES
scones

Scones, light and crumbly, married with clotted cream and thick conserve, washed down with a cup of tea. Perfect.
RM50 for batch of 16. (excludes pure cream and jam, but can be supplied at cost)


LEMON MERINGUE PIE
Lemon Meringue Pie

Tarty Lemon Curd Engulfed by Fluffy Sweet Meringue. Buttery pastry crust.
RM75

BANANA WALNUT CAKE
(Picture courtesy of Lyrical Lemongrass)

Banana Walnut Cake With Cream Cheese Topping. A fairly healthy cake, as there is no butter, very few eggs, and uses healthy sunflower oil. Very moist, and nutty. And I personally love cream cheese topping. (Contains walnut, raisins and banana)
RM65with cream cheese topping, RM60without.




BRANDY TRUFFLE CAKE
(Picture courtesy of Lyrical Lemongrass)

BRANDY TRUFFLE CAKE - No flour, so suitable for gluten intolerant, but not suitable if you cannot take egg. Very rich, contains about 600gms of chocolate alone.
RM70 with brandy
. Or if you cant take alcohol, then its RM65 for the virgin version.


ORANGE POPPY SEED CAKE
Orange Poppy Seed, or Lemon Poppy Seed as well. A buttery cake, perfect for tea time, or as a snack. Cream Cheese Topping is optional.
RM60 for plain, RM65 with topping

RUM AND RAISIN PIE
(Picture courtesy of Boolicious of Masak Masak)
Doused with rum, raisins soaked until plump with alcohol, in a custardy filling, encased with shortcrust pastry shell base. RM75 (sorry, no non alcoholic versions, unless you want "rum essence"....which is as bad as fake cream)

QUICHE
(Picture courtesy of Lyrical Lemongrass)
QUICHE - Various fillings, can opt for chicken, beef bacon, mushroom tuna, spinach etc etc. Average cost about RM 70.

APPLE CRUMBLE TART



Apple crumble with a shortcrust pastry base, for easy transportation and cutting. Best served with custard sauce, or fresh cream.

CHOCOLATE OFFERINGS



Clockwise, from Left Top :
Chocolate Oreo Cake - Chocolate sponge with a layer of crushed oreo (one whole pack), rich chocolate cream. Very universal, and easy pleaser. RM70

Chocolate Mud Cake - A dense chocolate cake that goes straight to the hips. Should be accompanied with sour cherries, and fresh cream to counter the richness that is chocolate. RM70. Optional - Brandy RM75. Additional RM5 for cream cheese topping instead of ganache.

Chocolate Jaffa Tart - A hint of orange, literally half baked. Lower half of chocolate layer is baked, upper layer is a rich ganache flavoured with orange rind. RM75

Flourless Chocolate Cakes With Molten Centres - Alas, the lava does not stay molten forever. You need to zap cooled cakes for about 20-30 seconds to re-melt the centres. Minimum order, 12 RM6 per piece.

Orange Mocha Chocolate Brownie - Very safe, so far no complaints by eaters. Goes superbly with vanilla ice cream, or dollop of fresh cream. Not a very high cake, so it might look small, but guaranteed to fill you up. RM65

SAY CHEESE
Mascarporne, cream cheese, cheddars, you don't have to be a mouse to enjoy cheese.
Clockwise from Left Top: Baked Orange, Baked coffee, Chilled Orange, Tiramisu
Baked Orange/Lemon Cheese Cake - RM70, for approx 1.3kg cake.

Chilled Cheesecakes - Lemon/Orange. It's unfathomable how cheesecake eaters are divided into two camps, ie, baked OR chilled, and never the twain shall meet. RM65.

Which is not to say that I don’t love it. Certainly I do. After all a good part of it can happen in your pajamas--although that could help me with my essay also be said, God help us, of the authorship of cruise-missile code.
