Tres Leches Cake Recipe

This is original mexican recipe for Tres Leches cake, however i made another version of it with my simple cake recipe and i feel like it turned out better. Because original recipe turned out kind of dense.

We will need:

1-¾ cup of Cake Flour
½ cup of Unsalted Butter at room temperature
1 tsp of Baking Powder
½ tsp of Salt
¾ cup of Granulated Sugar
5 Eggs, separated
¾ cup of Whole Milk
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract

For the 3 Milk Mixture:
1/4 cup of Whole Milk
1 14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 12 oz can of Evaporated Milk

For the Frosting:
1 ½ cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
4 Tbsp of Powdered Sugar

  • Butter needs to be room temperature 
  • Mix butter and sugar with mixer

  • Add eggs and vanilla 

  • Add flour, salt, baking powder 

  • Mix well

  • Spray Pan with cooking spray

  • Bake for about 30-35 min or till toothpick comes out clean

  • Flip cake upsidedown 

  • Poke holes in the cake with fork

  • Mix 3 milks 

  • Pour mixture on top of cake ( make sure your cake is in the deep enough platter) 

  • It wont take all the mixture at once

  • Keep in fridge for about 3-4 hours, the cake should soak in all the milk mixture 

  • Prep whipping cream

  • mix whipping cream with powdered sugar

  • Dont over beat the whipping cream

  • Frost the cake

  • Decorate with maraschino cherries ( this says Happy Birthday in russian)
