Tres Leches Cake


It's a classic cake in my country but they don't always make it right, sometimes it's too dry or too wet but if it's done right it can be one of the best things you've ever tried. It is often made with different types of fruit or plain but I like it with canned peaches.

- 1 white cake
- 1/2 c. of condensed milk
- 1/2 c. of evaporated milk
- 1/2 c. of whole milk
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla
- 1 tablespoon of Rum

1. Make white cake according to instructions and let it cool completely, remove from the pan and then put it back, pierce the cake with a fork. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl.

2. Pour mixture into cake and let it soak for 1 hour in the fridge. Meanwhile beat 1c. of whipping cream with 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar, slice 1/2 can of peaches.


Assemble by carefully putting 1 cake in a platter, cover with
whipped cream and peaches, put second cake on top and
spread a thin layer of whipped cream

  3. This sounds divine. I love tres leches cake and you are right, sometimes it isn't done correctly and it isn't so good. I love the idea of adding the peaches - and I have never seen it with rum - yummy!
