Let me start by saying, yumm!! Me and my family are big fan of moist cakes and this Tres Leches Cake blew me away! Tres Leches Cake has got to be one of the worlds best kinds of cake! A tres leches cake, also known as pan tres leches, is a sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk which keeps this cake moist but had a light feel to it.
If you’ve never had Tres Leches Cake now is the time to make it! It’s a perfectly rich, sweet, satisfying cake and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!
I made this double layer with fruit cocktail filling but you can make in single layer in 9x13 inch pan t and just decorate with fresh berries. This simple, easy and perhaps the moistest cake you’ll ever have had, has a unique flavor you cannot find in any other cakes.
