Tres Leches Cake

Tres leches (i.e. three types of milk) cake, is one of my favorite desserts to order, whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant. The spongy cake is oozing with a tasty milk syrup, and topped with whipped vanilla cream. Granted, it is sweeter than most cakes I’m usually making, but it is also very delicious and irresistible. So far, I was happy enough with only ordering it when at the restaurant, and didn’t make it at home. But with limited restaurant experiences lately, things changed, and I was looking for an authentic recipe, in order to make it at home. When I saw the detailed recipe for it on a blog I follow, Irene’s “My slice of Mexico”, I knew it was the one to try first. Continue reading “Tres Leches Cake”
