Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
December 21, 2007

My recipe is nearly identical - except I follow a slightly different method for making the cake portion - beat the butter first, for a few minutes until it is a light yellow color - then add the sugar and beat on high until it is very pale - add eggs one at a time (beating for 20 seconds between each egg); then add vanilla and beat for one more minute. Add flour mixture a little at a time and mix until batter is smooth (my batter is always a bit thick). For a slightly better rise in the cake add 1/4 tsp baking soda with the baking powder. I like to use 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup whole milk (essentially half and half) instead of all regular milk... provides a creamier flavor. Can be made without the whipped topping if you prefer - it's good with or without it. You will NOT be disappointed in this cake - very very delicious!
