MADAGASCAR CHOCOLATE VANILLA OLIVE CAKE | BIG BOYS OVEN SWEET DESSERT

We had a great time baking and meeting new friends in Johor Bahru (JB). We had 3 sets of baking on the first day instead of two by request and at the end all of us got into being a zombie . . . . yeah, we were so tired and went straight to our bunker!

There were a lot of changes in the Johor Bahru scenery, lots of new roads and new buildings as for food, I would amazingly say, just amazing, just delicious, just awesome!. We had loads of Italian food, you just can’t imagine, just pure lovely, perfect pasta and drooling pizza. We had japanese too, outstanding flavours, fresh shashimi, truely teppanyaki of a whole squid, unagi maki, tempura, not forgetting the garlic fried rice and flushed down with a few cup of rejunevating cooling green tea.

Another exciting menu we had, it was the Bak Kut Teh flushed within the Johor Bahru downtown scene, it was totally amazing delicious. Yet another exciting meal we had was the beef noodle and also the stewed duckling noodle, both amazingly delicious, something not to be missed and I will defintely post about them this coming weeks.

And as for today, I am going to share my delicious discovery of baking, a chocolate vanilla olive oil cake and a recipe by a modest, loyal, good looking and a winning pastry chef himself, Chef Ronny Leung from the famous Hong Kong Club.

DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) DESSERT

I am sure you are very eager by now, waiting patiently for my tiramisu, but before that I would like to invite you to view The Ho Chak! TV8 program (Ho Chak! 5 – Episode 5 – Part 1) which had featured Chef Steven Cheng and his mini Buddha jump over the wall (mini futt till cheong), myself and sidney were also interviewed.

The picture below is not the mini Buddha jump over the wall dish but it is an extra large Xiu Long Bao (oppssss…..) which I saw and captured through my lense while I was at the Kuala Lumpur newest shopping mall, the Pavalion. It is really exciting and really can’t imagine sipping the soup inside of the dumpling through using a straw. Well, it will be even more exciting if a dessert can be eaten that way using a straw sipping all the great juices and continue eating and enjoying them.

So what is the most best dessert that can be eaten the same way as this huge Xio Long Bau? What came into my mind was this dessert called Tiramisu, but how should it be done? Therefore let us explore and see how we can enjoy having the similar thing but as a dessert.


Things that needed would be a good cup of espresso, coffee syrup, sponge cake, tiramisu cream and a good container to hold this exciting and delicious Tiramisu. The Tiramisu container that I used is this illy tappered glass as shown below.


Make some good brewed espresso according to your taste and set it aside, but as usual I use illy espresso coffee. You can get a tin of illy espresso coffee powder about 150gm for RM23(USD6) at Isetan, KLCC.


Making Tiramisu Cream

Whipping cream 120ml
Egg yolks 35g
Sugar 40g
Sweet Marsala 45ml
Mascarpone, softened 110g

1. Get the tappered glass ready before beginning preparation
2. Whip the whipping cream to soft peaks. Cover and reserve under refrigeration.
3. (Sabayon) Combine egg yolks, sugar and marsala in a stainless steel bowl and whip together until thoroughly blended. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and heat, whisking constantly, until the moisture is thick and foamy and has reached at least 165F/74C.
4. Remove from the heat and whip, using an electric mixer fitted with the wire whip attachment, on high speed until cool.
5. Fold the egg yolk mixture into the mascarpone. Gently blend in approximately one-third of the reserved whipped whipping cream. Fold in the remaing whipped whipping cream.
6. Immediately pipe or spead into prepared tappered glass which contained espresso coffee and sponge cake.

Sponge Cake


Espresso and sponge cake with coffee syrup are assembled into the illy tappered glass. Once done, pipe the Tiramisu cream into the the illy tappered glass and finish it with a dust of chocolat powder and snow sugar. Cover and refrigerate until completely set.

Once the tiramisu is chilled, you just need a straw and a teaspoon. Plunge the straw into the tiramisu and start sipping the chilled espresso and start digging into it. It is really fantastic and for myself, I just can’t stop enjoying having them and hope that goes same with you too.

Black & White Cupcake (Part 1)

It had been a great weekend…. and as usual busy, but still manage to have time to meet up with friends and have lunch on Sunday. Busy with? really?… well baking for most, visiting new malls such as Pavilion and the Gardens, dinner with Steven Cheng, our new on board and regular food churner at Big Boys Kitchen, nothing else to talk but just talk about food over dinner… sounds bored but it was really a journey about food, creation and taste, it was something no one would like to share… especially their secrets. I did check on other bloggers update post and also not forgetting, updating my post.

Got to say, last week was such a happening days, for most we would like to thank Little Corner of Mine for awarding us the Creative Blogger Award. Thank you very much and will soon be awarding to some other great bloggers out there in the cyberworld.

Secondly, me and Sid had our 30 second fame on telly 6pm today. Steven Cheng was interviewed and his dish “mini monk jump over the wall” was featured on 8TV’s “Ho Chiak” food program. We were also interview about the dish…… and sid was having a joyly time… not forgetting me too.

On this post, I am posting my latest collection of cupcakes and I call them black & white cupcakes. Here I baked caramel banana cupcakes and decorated them with dark chocolat ganache and white butter cream and finished them off with chocolat at the centre. There are two sizes and with different decoration, a medium and a big ones and both of this cupcakes are available at Ole Cafe.




Prefer to keep them simple and maintain their natural beauty and elegant. They look so gorgeous just like my own babies. I also know that you are waiting for my tiramisu, and will be posting them this week. So while waiting make sure you have mascarpone cheese, sponge cake and a good espresso waiting in your fridge.

OPERA – Always On My Mind


This opera cake had been always on my mind. Why?….. cause of it’s colour, texture and flavour as what Michael Buble sings ” Always on my mind”. Opera cake is something that I cannot resist. And here, I did a four layered opera cake. Each layer consists of thin layer of almond sponge cake, coffee syrup, butter cream and chocolate ganache. At the end I top it with gold flake and chocolate bits.

This is something that I can’t resist myself from, opera, you always on my mind.

Matcha Mousse Cake


It seems like a japanese food preview for most KL bloggers this week ( such meiyin and lyrical lemongrass) and my oven got under attack too. I wish cicak man can come to rescue me. hahaha… that’s funny.

Matcha (Green Tea) Mousse Cake is nothing new these days in KL as you can get it at most cake shops in KL. For my version, I used matcha sponge cake, matcha syrup to moist the sponge cake during assembling, matcha mousse, azuki (red bean) and white chocolate for the deco.

This is yet another very simple cake to make and has a very oriental flavour and taste.

Tarte Fruit


It had been a busy week and the good news is, we are going to feature the work of chef William T (Singapore) on Big Boys Oven. I am sure it is going to be a very exciting and just can’t wait to see chef William T’s creation soon

For this week, I decided to put up a very simple tarte fruit as the ingredients are found in my fridge. Fresh fruits, sponge cake, strawberry cream, strawberry syrup and tarte shell. I started to assemble this tarte fruit by piping the strawberry cream onto the tart shell. Place a sponge cake on top of the strawberry cream and brushed some strawberry syrup over the cake sponge.

Once the tarte based is completed, the fresh fruits are arranged according to your liking. Lastly applied apricot glazing on to the fresh fruits as to bring the creation to life.

Do try this, it is simple, fast and yet gorgeous.
