Tres Leches Cake - Ultimate Moist Cake

Tres Leches Cake - Ultimate Moist Cake

Ingredients for the cake:
5 large eggs
1 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of milk
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Ingredients for the milk syrup:
1 cup of heavy cream
12 oz can of evaporated milk
12 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Steps for making the cake:
1- Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Place the egg yolks in the larger bowl.
2- Beat in the egg whites into soft peaks using an electrical beater. After 20 seconds, add 1/3 of the sugar to the egg whites and continue beating to firm peaks.
3- Beat the egg yolks with the rest of the sugar until you get a whitish and smooth mixture.
4- Sift the flour and add it to the egg yolk mixture. Add the milk, baking powder, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
5- Fold the egg whites mixture into the egg yolks mixture until you get a smooth batter.
6- Generously batter a 13x9 in. baking pan and add the batter.
7- Preheat the oven to 350 F and bake the cake for 30-40 minutes or until done (when inserting a toothpick, it should come out clean).

Steps for making the milk syrup:
1- Whisk together the heavy cream, evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract.

Last Steps:
1- Let the cake completely cool down. Once it is at room temperature, gently poke it all over with a fork.
2- Pour the milk syrup over the cake. Let the cake soak in the fridge for few hours before serving.

You can serve the Tres Leches cake topped with whipped cream or dry coconut flakes and ice cream or fruit on the side. Enjoy!

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by!
