How to Make Tres Leches (three Milk Cake)


  1. bake the cake according to the directions of the package,when cake ready flip cake upside down...if u want to present it to the table keep in mid that all the other ingrediants are going to be added to this cake and that it needs to have a lil bit of room (hight)....poke the cake with a fork all way thru all over so it will make it easier to absorb the milks
  2. while cake is cooling u can start mixing on a blender the 2 cans of evaporated milk, 1 cup of reg milk and the 1 1/2 to 2 cans of sweet condens milk u can start with one and sweeting it up as u like i think 1 1/2 is just perfect ........sometime i like to pour some rum into the mix when im making it for a girls nigth but is up to you both way it taste great if u decide to pour rum is up to u how much you would like to add to it but i usually just add about 2 ounces ....mix well and chill in refrigerator
