This Tres Leches Cake is definitely like a piece of dessert heaven! Not too sweet, and just a hint of cinnamon. It’s ridiculously delicious.
Happy Monday morning! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. We certainly did, and my best present was being able to Skype with my son who is serving a mission in Cusco, Peru. Honestly, it was the best and I wish I could do it again today, but I can’t so I’ll just have to be happy with getting his weekly email today.
In case you didn’t notice, I took last week off, but I’m back today with an amazing Tres Leches Cake recipe. If you’re not familiar with Tres leches cake, it’s a sponge cake soaked with a mixture of “three milks” then topped with sweetened whipping cream. It’s tender and creamy and so, so good. This cake kind of just melts in your mouth. I’ve had versions of tres leches cake before that were just a little too soggy for me, but this one is not! I promise. It has the most incredible flavor and I love the hint of cinnamon in it. Don’t leave it out.This cake is heavenly. It’s moist, but not mushy and not too sweet. . . .it’s perfect! An an added bonus is that your house smells amazing while it’s baking! YUM!Print
