Tres Leches

A tres leches recipe from Allrecipes. I had made one a long time ago but I couldn't remember where I got the recipe, so I tried a new one which turned out pretty good. Next time I would reduce the condensed milk so it's not as sweet. I tossed out the milk (and used it for a very sweet rice pudding) thinking I had extra, but it completely absorbed all the milk and I wished I had more.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup white sugar
5 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups whole milk
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch baking pan.

Sift flour and baking powder together and set aside. Cream butter or margarine and the 1 cup sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs and the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract; beat well. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture 2 tablespoons at a time; mix until well blended.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Pierce cake several times with a fork.

Combine the whole milk, condensed milk, and evaporated milk together. Pour over the top of the cooled cake.

Whip whipping cream, the remaining 1 cup of the sugar, and the remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla together until thick. Spread over the top of cake. Be sure to keep cake refrigerated, and enjoy!


  1. You got rid of the condensed milk? That's the best part! That's like making an apple pie and throwing out the apples =P
