Tres Leche Cake is a dense and moist “three milks” cake topped with a cloud of vanilla whipped cream. What makes it unique is that after baked, it is perforated and soaked in a mixture of three different milk products: evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whole milk or heavy cream, hence the name Tres Leches. The three milks, when combined, create just the right sweetness, density and “mouth feel” for a rich cake, making it moist but not mushy. The cake is like one big giant sponge soaking up the delicious milk syrup. Tres Leche cake finds it’s orgins in Latin America and especially popular in the countries of Nicaragua, Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Guatemala.
