Tres Leches Cake ( translates as ‘three milks cake’ in Spanish) is a traditional Latin American dessert that is found in nearly all Mexican bakeries. It is sponge cake usually with less butter soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk & cream/whole milk. This cake either uses no butter or less butter than usual sponge cakes. This distinct texture is why it doesn’t have a soggy consistency despite it being soaked in three types of milk. We couldn’t resist a little bit of butter so here is our version of the dessert. P.s did you know this dessert became popular in the early 1900s when the recipe was printed on the back of nestle evaporated milk cans or condensed milk cans to promote the use of the product!
