Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
November 08, 2002

This is the second recipe that I have tried for Tres Leches, and it came out perfect. I read all of the previous reviews, and I must disagree with several of the earlier comments. This cake does not taste eggy (I used 5 large eggs, maybe the other guy used jumbo). Using a 13x9 pan, the thickness was just right, about 1-1/4" high (cake portion). There was not too much liquid. I found the amount of liquid to be almost perfect. The only problem was having to wait a while for it all to soak in. I did not want to wait any longer, so I had to dump a few ounces, so I could proceed to the frosting stage. Once I was serving the cake, I found that it was totally moist, but I would have preferred some excess milk mixture at the bottom, which this one did not produce (the amount missing was just about the amount I threw out), so I think the recipe is probably perfect on quantities and perfect on cooking instructions. Out of 7 people at my dinner party, 6 loved the cake and one was neutral. Thank you Stephanie for a great recipe
