Tres Leches Cake

One of the best deserts and it is pretty easy to make. It is made from 3 different milks, hence the name.

Ingredients:
5 eggs
2 cups of flour
1.5 cups of sugar
2 tsp of baking powder
1.5 tsp of vanila extract
1/2 cup of milk

1 can of condensed milk
1 can of evaporated milk
1.5 cup of heavy cream

Process:

  • Separate egg whites and egg yolk.
    Put egg whites into a separate bowl and mix it with a mixer while gradually adding the sugar

  • Blend it untill mixture becomes stiff and you see soft peaks

  • Add egg yolks one by one while continuously mixing

  • Meanwhile heat up the oven to 350 degrees and butter up the baking pan
  • Keep blending untill mixture thickens

  • While blending continuously, gradually pour in the milk

  • Add teaspoon of vanila extract

  • Gradually add flour

  • Pour the dough into the baking pan and bake for 30 minutes

  • Take it out of the oven and check for readiness with a fork or toothpeak – it has to come out clean

  • In a bowl mix together condensed milk, evaporated milk and half if the heavy cream

  • Slow pour some of the milk mixture evenly over the cake

  • Let it cool down for 20-30 minues and pour another portion of milk mixture

  • Them refrigerate the cake for a couple of hours with remaining milk mixture
  • Take out the cake and pour another potion of the mixture, let it absorb and pour another portion
  • Put the remaining heavy cream into a separate bown with 2-3 teaspoons of sugar and 1/2 of teaspoon of vanila extract. Whip it untill the cream thikens to the point where it can br spread

  • Spread the whipped cream on top of the sponge cake and top it with some sliced fruit. Personally I prefer strawberries or raspberries
