About a week ago I was in a conversation with My Aussie BFF (Trish). She told me She was going to make a Tres Leeches cake, I thought that sounds good....(but what is Tres Leches cake?)
Well in a nutshell.. It's the best cake ever! A sponge cake covered with 3 milks, Heavy Cream,Sweetened Condensed milk ans Evaporated Milk. (Oh MaMa), and topped with a whipped cream frosting.
I mulled over making this cake myself after our conversation and today I gave in. I searched the web for Tres Leches and came across a recipe I felt I could do.
I want to give props to www.foodnetwork.com for having this recipe available as well as Marcella Valladolid. ( you Rock).
So I took an inventory of what I had in house then it was off to the market to pick up parchment paper evaporated milk condensed milk heavy cream and whole milk.( I know 4 milks -Tres leches?)
whole milk is part of making the sponge cake.
4 egg whites along with 1 1/2 cups sugar whisked to stiff peaks
Bake at 350 for 32-34 minutes let cool and take out of pan.
add the Tres Leches mixture (NOTE: The recipe I used called for 3 tablespoons of Grand Mariner.
I used 3 tablespoons of mexican vanilla. I felt it worked).
