Tres leches cake

Tres leches or three-milk cake, that´s the name of this yummy thing. It reportedly has its origin in South America, but it´s popular worldwide. And what is its secret? It´s simple, you pour combined evaporated, sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream (or full fat milk) over the top of cake. The cake batter is a bit denser, so don´t worry, it will not fall apart after glaze soaked in. Then add whipped cream and voila, cake is ready. If you love sweet cakes, this one is right for you!
