I was at a friend’s Cuban Restaurant and had this cake (three milks) AWSOME! I wanted to replicate the cake in an easy way; many years ago my mother bought me a Betty Crocker book, lowenbehold the recipe for this cake was in the book. Here is my version, I made a few changes. I take horrible photo's :)
