Easy Tres Leches Cake
I wanted to make a simple, quick Tres Leches cake for my family. Too many recipes I'd found called for fruit, or meringue, or coconut -- which detracts from the rich milk flavor.
|1||(18 1/4 ounce) box white cake mix|
|1 1/4 cups||water|
|1 cup||heavy cream|
|1 (12-ounce) can||evaporated milk|
|1 (14-ounce) can||sweetened condensed milk|
1 Preheat over to 350º.
2 Grease or "pam" 9x12 baking pan.
3 Beat eggs in a large bowl.
4 Add water and cake mix and beat 3 minutes.
5 Pour batter into pan.
6 Bake for 30 minutes, or until cake has lost its jiggly center and springs back when touched.
7 Let cool to room temperature.
8 Mix the 3 milks.
9 Poke cake full of holes. A chopstick works great for this. Don't skimp on the holes; that's what allows the cake to absorb the milks.
10 Pour the milk mixture over the cake slowly, until it's absorbed the liquid.
11 Refrigerate until ready to serve.
