3 Milk Cake

- submitted by Dahlia on 01-11-2010
(Tres Leches Cake, Ultimate Moist Cake)

All Purpose Flour - 2 cups
Eggs - 5
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Salt - a pinch
Milk - 1/2 cup
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
For Pouring over the finished cake
Condensed milk - 1 can
Evaporated Milk - 1 can
Heavy Cream - 1 pint
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp

1. Take the eggs in a mixing bowl and beat it well with an electric blender. The egg mixture should become light and creamy.
2. Mix the sugar and vanilla extract with this.
3. Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder) in a seperate bowl.
4. Add the flour mixture and milk alternatively to the egg mixture while mixing it continuously.
5. After the cake mixture is ready, transfer it to a pyrex dish or a cake pan. If using a pyrex dish, the final cake can be served in the same dish itself.
6. Bake it for about 30 minutes in a 350  degree oven. (till the inserted toothpick comes out clean)
7. After the cake has cooled down a little , transfer it to the serving dish. It will be difficult to transfer after pouring the milk.
8. Prick the cake with a fork throughout the cake. The will enable the milk mixture to get absorbed in the cake very easily.
9. Mix all the ingredients under 'for pouring' in a seperate bowl. 
10. Pour this mixture throughtout the surface of the  cake. The cake will instantly absorb most of the liquid.
11. Cover the cake and let it rest in the refrigerator for few hours. 
12. While serving if the cake gets dry, you can some more of the milk mixture.
13. Top the cake with whipped cream or sweetened coconut flakes or any fruits. The cake in the picture is topped with some whipped cream and cherry pie filling mixture.

hi Dhalia
It looks very nice
I want to try this
I have two questions about this milk cake recipe
1. In the ingredient you mentioned 1/2 cup milk for preparing cake .is it enough?
2. The measurement u have given is for how many servings?
Person   ()
Hi Praveena,
The amount of milk would be perfect as we are using 5 eggs in the recipe. This measurement will make a 8" or 9" round cake or 8*8 square cake. If you need a bigger one, just double the quantity.
