Tres Leche Cake

Tres leche cake is one of the best cake I have had .Tres leche means three milk cake A sponge or a butter cake soaked in three milks and topped with whipped cream .This is actually baked in a 9 ×13 pan but since It was made for a birthday I wanted to frost it completely with whipped cream so I used a 9 inch cake tin .This cake is soft and very moist..Its easy to make and utterly delicious and you can never go wrong with this. Have baked this many times and we love it..I had mentioned in my birthday cake post that I will be posting this soon but it completely forgot about it. Thought of posting this today as my little space turns 4 years old. 
This day 4 yrs back I started this little space to keep a record of my recipes .It has been a wonderful journey so far hope the coming years I am more active and am able to share more recipes .I would like to thank all my friends readers and all those who earnestly follow my blog and try the recipes.   
Do try this you and your family will love it.

  • I used a 9 inch cake tin lined with parchment.
  • Bake for 35 to 45 min until skewer comes out clean .
  • Allow to cool then prick holes with a skewer or fork.
  • Mix the condensed milk evaporated milk and fresh cream together with a whisk

notes
1 cup =250 ml

For the milk mixture I have used amul fresh cream which is available easily here .
This cake is a bit messy to work with I bake it a day ahead and let the liquid soak up and frost it the other day.
