Tres Leches Cake

I’m not going to lie, I had no idea what Tres Leches Cake was until my imaginary BFF Bossy posted her recipe nearly 2 years ago. (Wow, have I been in the blog world that long?!) I thought that pouring a bunch of milk on top of a cake sounded strange but since I trust Bossy’s taste in men, I figured I could trust her cake making too. Only problem was that I decided to make this while standing in the grocery store with only my Blackberry to help me find the recipe. And well, I am not the most patient person in the word. I went with one of the first recipes to pop up on my google search.

This cake – amazing. A bit of a pain in the butt with the whipping of egg whites following by the whipping of cream, way too much whipping if you ask me. At one point I was actually trying to hand whip the egg whites because I was too lazy to take 5 steps to get my mixer. I just hate using having to clean the thing.

Back to the cake, it was seriously good. The texture was almost custard-like after all the milk was poured over. I’m already looking forward to the next time I make this!
