I made this cake awhile ago. It is unlike any other cake in the universe, and it tasted completely different than what I thought it would.
Different = AWESOME!
It is so moist and dense, yet light and refreshing.....I can't even describe it.
I'm not a humongous fan of cakes that aren't chocolate or at least have a lot of chocolate in them.....But this cake did it for me. And it will do it for you too.
And if it doesn't, it's not my fault.
It's not like I forced you to make it.
Tres Leches Cake
1 Cup All-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
5 Whole Eggs
1 cup Sugar, divided
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/3 Cup Milk
1 Can Evaporated Milk
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/4 Cup Heavy Cream
For the icing:
1 Pint Heavy Cream (for whipping)
3 Tbsp. Sugar
Allow the cake to absorb the milk mixture for 30 minutes. To ice the cake, whip 1 pint heavy cream with 3 tablespoons of sugar until thick and spreadable.
Spread over the surface of the cake.
If you want, you can decorate the cake with whole or chopped maraschino cherries. Cut into squares and serve.
Or eat it off the plate directly. Not that I did that or anything.
