Tres Leches Cake

from my peeps

Tres Leches Cake

Here is another wonderful recipe from our South American adventure. It’s a delightful finish to a spicy Latin meal.

1 ½ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
5 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups whole milk
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12oz) can evaporated milk
1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat Oven to 350. Spray 9 x13 with Pam or other cooking spray.
Stir flour and baking powder together and set aside.
Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and the ½ tsp of vanilla and beat well
Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture 2 tablespoons at a time. Mix until well blended. Spread batter into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 for 30minutes.When cake is out of the oven pierce all over with fork
Combine whole milk, condensed milk and evaporated milk together. Pour over top of cooled cake.
Whip whipping cream, the remaining cup of sugar and remaining vanilla together until thick. Spread on top of cake and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. Be sure to keep refrigerated.— Enjoy and don’t tell your cardiologist what you are having for dessert.
