easy three milks cake
sorry i haven't been around the past few days, the hubs and i have been battling colds, not much fun. i did get it together enough to try my hand at a tres leches or three milk cake. i scoured the net and found this recipe. it had good reviews, and lots of'em, so i figured why not give it a whirl. this is a super simple cake to bake, comes together quickly and tastes good enough for company. surprisingly, it not super sweet as you might expect. one regret, i wished i had some berries. it needs berries. berries would be nice, any berries. fresh or frozen berries. enjoy.
p.s.-a few notes, i used the two cups of "cake soaking" milk mixture that the recipe calls for, which leaves lots of extra milk, enough for cake #2. i think it will be fine in the fridge for awhile. also, i made the effort to find the crema, which is a table cream. it can be found in most mega marts on the hispanic food aisle . one more thing, pay attention to your whipping cream, don't get distracted by a four year old like i did and beat it too stiff. it should be nice and fluffy. it spreads easier that way.
wouldn't this be pretty with some berries?
