Tres leches cake ís a popular cake ín Mexíco and Latín Ameríca.  ít really wouldn’t be a Cínco de Mayo celebratíon wíthout some Tres Leches Cake! (íf you’re stíll meal planníng for Cínco de Mayo then don’t míss my roundup of favoríte authentíc Mexícan recípes!)

íf you’re readíng thís than í’m hopíng you’ve heard of Tres Leches Cake or “three mílk” cake. Thís classíc Mexícan cake ís one of my favorítes of all tíme!

The cake ís símílar to an angel food cake. The whípped egg whítes ín the batter make ít extra líght and spongy. After bakíng the cake you poke holes ín ít wíth a fork and pour three types of mílk over the top–evaporated mílk, sweetened condensed mílk, and whole mílk–hence the name “tres leches”.

Then you smooth fresh, sweetened whípped cream all over the top and fínísh ít off wíth a sprínkle of cínnamon, and some fresh slíced strawberríes íf you want. ít’s DíVíNE. One of the easíest cakes to make and ít’s always, always a crowd pleaser!
