How to make Tres Leches Recipe - Mexican Three Milk Cake

  1. To begin making the Tres Leches Recipe - Mexican Three Milk Cake we will first make the cake

Method for the cake
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease and flour a square or round 8 inch baking pan and keep aside.

  2. In a bowl combine the vanilla, oil and milk. Keep aside. 

  3. In another bowl sift the flour, salt, baking powder. Keep aside.  

  4. In a large bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until fluffy. Gradually beat in the milk mixture and continue to add the flour mixture. Beat just until all the ingredients are combined. 

  5. Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan and bake in the preheated oven for about 35 to 40 minutes or until tester like a pick or a skewer when inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool completely. 

Method for the Leche (Milk Mixture)
  1. Whisk together the evaporated milk/milk, sweetened condensed milk and cream. Once combined, pour the leches over the cake. Refrigerate the cake overnight. Every hour or so keep pouring over the milk mixture that collects in the platter back into the cake, this way the cake will absorb the leches mixture better and have a rich taste.

Final Tres Leche
  1. Whip the cream and icing sugar and vanilla essence until you get a stiff cream mixture that you can pipe over the Tres Leches.

  2. You can pipe or spread the icing onto the Tres Leches to give it a good decoration. Refrigerate for about an hour or more.

  3. Serve the Tres Leches sprinkled with some cinnamon powder and some fresh berries. You could also add some rum or brandy to the milk mixture to add more flavors into it.

  4. Serve Tres Leches as dessert after a Mexican meal of Delicious Spiced Red Bean Mexican Burrito Bowl With Avocados and Cheesy Garlic Mayo for a simple yet satisfying meal.
