Tres Leches Cake
This moist, luscious dessert is named "tres leches" because after it's baked, the cake is soaked in three different types of milk; condensed milk, evaporated milk, and whole milk. The milks saturate the cake, making it soft and extra sweet. It's one of the most popular cakes in Mexico and beloved in Nicaragua and other Central American countries. Our easy recipe adds whipped cream and fruit for serving, you can use any fruit that's in season, alone or in a combination. Whipped cream might might seem excessive when the cake is already so rich with dairy but it actually tempers the sweetness of the cake.
