|Tres Leches Cake - Amazing creamy goodness on a plate!|
Once it is baked, let it cool a bit on the counter
While it is cooling you can make the "Tres Leches" part of this cake. If you remember anything from your high school Spanish class, tres means "three", and leche means "milk". So this cake literally means "three milks". The three milks you will need are:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can of evaporated milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
Pour the three milks into a bowl and stir gently to combine
When your cake is mostly cooled (you can still do this if it is slightly warm) poke holes in the top with a fork
Once the entire top of the cake is covered in holes, pour half of the milk mixture on top of the cake. Be sure to pour slowly and cover the entire cake. This, will feel wrong.
|My gosh... what have I done!!!|
|It's swimming in milk... Noooooo!|
|What kind of witchery is this??|
But hold the phone... I let it sit for ten minutes. I was even afraid to go back in the kitchen mind you, and lo and behold when I did, this is what I found:
|What a difference 10 minutes makes, right?|
This dessert was amazing cool, sweet and creamy. A perfect ending to a slightly spicy meal. Here it is surrounded by some heavenly sunset light, as if God himself approved of this dessert.
So this was just a fabulous dessert. Everyone loved it's creamy texture and how cool and refreshing it was. Let me know if you make it and how it turned out for you. Enjoy!
