Tres Leches Cake recipe|| 3 milk cake recipe|| Mexican dessert and very easy to make

A Tres Leches Cake is called pastel de tres leches in Spanish. It is a sponge cake specially a butter sponge cake which is soaked in three kinds of milk – heavy cream, condensed milk and evaporated milk.
When butter is not used the Tres Leches Cake becomes very light with many air bubbles and doesn’t have that much soggy consistency,despite being sokaed in 3 milk mixture.But when is butter included as an ingredient then after soaking you can taste all the milky sweet mixture in every spoon you take.

You can simply soak and add whipping cream on top of the cake with fresh strawberries or other berries or you can take t to a notch by decoration either way the taste is awesome ๐Ÿ‘.

It is an ultra light spongy cake and is great for milk lovers. It is mainly popular in Mexico and Latin America. There is literally no Cinco de Mayo celebration without this cake. This cake is similar to angel food cake.
