Tres Leches cake?

annalulu May 12, 2005 07:47 PM

I did the Control-F search on the board and nothing came up...maybe I spelled it wrong?

Looking for a really GOOD recipe for tres leches cake. Can be fairly authentic and complicated, I think I can handle it...but "simplified" versions welcome too.

    It's pretty simple, make any yellow or white cake with milk instead of water; when it's cooled enough to touch, depan and poke holes in the top (don't go all the way through!) and pour condensed milk into the holes; then frost with real whipped cream.

    Leche numero uno: milk in batter
    Leche numero dos: condensed milk
    Leche numero tres: whipped cream

      Hi there,

      I couldn't resist answering your request, even though I am late for a dinner date. I have tried more versions of this dessert than I can say. I tend to get really obsessed and go way overboard. In any event, the following link is to a recipe I've come to feel is about as good as I've made. It is ridiculously simple, but oh so tasty. I am 99% of the time a totally from scratch baker and cook. Try the following recipe, and you will hopefully agree that sometimes easy can be delish.

      Happy baking,

        Oh my God these are so good! I put on about 10 lbs every time I make one.
