Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches cake is of course made with 3 milks. The cake is at first baked as you would a normal cake, then breathing holes are poked into the cake. Afterward 3 different sweet milks are poured onto the cake until it is totally saturated. A light frosting can be added topped by a Maraschino cherry.

Simple Tres Leches Cake

This a moist, sweet and delicious version of Tres Leches Cake. It uses very few ingredients and is just the right size for a small family.

Authentic Tres Leches Cake/No Butter

This is my third Tres Leches Recipe at the site. Although the other 2 tastes just as delicious, this one is more authentic because if uses only the eggs for the moisture. The cool whip frosting is a wonderfully delectable addition to this cake. The secret ingredient cinnamon just sets the cake in a different plane.

How To Make Cuatro Leches Cake

Tres Leches or 3 Milks cake is a sponge type cake where three different milks are poured on top of the cake after it's baked. I put a spin on this recipe and I've made 4 milks or CUATRO LECHES CAKE. Happy Cinco de Mayo.

Cake Ingredients
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. granulated white sugar (divided)
3/4 c. whole milk
6 eggs (separated)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

4 Milk/Cuatro Milk Mixture
1 (7.6 oz.) can media crema
1 (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 (12 oz.) evaporated milk
1 c. heavy cream

16 oz. heavy cream
1 c. granulated white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract


Mix all dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks, milk, sugar and vanilla extract for 3 minutes. Beat egg whites to soft peaks then add 1/2 cup sugar. Fold the dry ingredient into the the egg yolk mixture then fold in egg whites. Pour batter in a greased 13x9x2 and bake at 350° for 30 minutes

After cake is cooled stab holes all over, using a toothpick, then mix media crema, evap mik, condensed milk and heavy cream in a large bowl. Pour milk mixture on top the cake slowly, giving it time to saturate.

Put a metal bowl with the beaters from a hand mixer in the freezer for at least 30 minutes then beat 2 cups of heavy cream to soft peaks. Add 1 tsp. vanilla then add 1 cup of granulated white sugar slowly until well incorporated. Beat for only 5 minutes total.
