Ah yes, the Tres Leches cake or here in the USA also known as The Tres Leches cake.
LOL Ok Ok enough of me trying be funny (“How dare you try to be funny……”)
The Three Milk Cake is another one of my “most asked for recipes” and it is exactly what the name implies: 3 milks mixed together and poured over a sponge cake that will soak up every bit of it and leave you with a super soaked, super delicious Spanish dessert that is as simple and tasty as most Spanish desserts are.
Now of course I have my Gretchen’s Bakery way, which is a slight variation from the original dessert that I believe came from Nicaragua~ but let’s take a spin on a classic as I always do here and make it super easy for you ~as I always do!
Quien te ama? Yep- I do!
We are going to do some Building on Recipes and for those who are already in love with my Vanilla Sponge Cake, well you are in luck because that happens to be the BEST cake recipe for this Tres Leches Cake.
So go bake your cake and get right back here with me to watch the making of the Tres Leches Cake!
Cool completely before pouring the tres leches mixture over top.
Do not prepare the whipped cream until you are ready to spread it over the top of the finished cake
- Combine the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, whole milk and vanilla together and mix well.
- Pour entire mixture over the cooled Vanilla Sponge Cake while still in the cake pan
- Prepare the whipped cream and spread over the top, sprinkle with cocoa powder or cinnamon optional
