Authentic Tres Leches Cake

(Jane Jojo) #1

Tres Leches cake, otherwise called as Three Milk Cake. Sweet and moist two layer cake with wet vanilla sponge cake base, topped with whipped cream. The vanilla cake base is soaked in rich milk sauce made out of three kinds of milk- evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and the half-and-half.

So it says powdered sugar for the whip cream stuff but then you say to put it in the cake and put normal sugar in the whipping? Hope that's right bc that's how I did it lol cake is baking now.

I powdered the granulated sugar and used it in the cake. For the whip cream stuffing, I used confectioners sugar. I will clear it out in the instruction steps. How did your cake turn out?

I've made trees leche cake before and it turned out good. The texture was between dry and moist. But could I reduce the amount of sugar you put into the cake?

I have always made Tres Leches cake with the mentioned quantity of sugar (1.13 cup) in the recipe. But you can reduce 1/5th cup of the granulated sugar measurement in the cake (means take around .9 cup), if you want it less sweet. It should be fine I believe.
