I’ve been wanting to try making Tres Leches Cake (or three milks cake) for awhile now. The cake itself will seem very dry and airy, which is exactly what you want. It’s going to soak up all that sweet milk and become incredibly moist and delicious.
It really is best if you can make it a day ahead so there is plenty of time for all of the glaze to be absorbed. But honestly, I couldn’t wait that long and it was still delicious–although I’m sure it will be even better tomorrow. I wasn’t sure how my family would like this, but they all kept telling me how good it was. It was really quite simple to make, and would be a perfect dessert for Cinco de Mayo, or any Mexican themed meal.
Substitution: If you don’t have cake flour, just add a tablespoon of cornstarch per 1 cup of all-purpose flour.
