    MARCH TOPIC~Tres Leches Cake

    Sat Feb 26, 2011 11:46 am Groupie

    The origin of Tres Leches Cake is reported to come from the back of an evaporated milk or condensed milk can in Latin America to promote the use of the product. Evaporated milk and condensed milk were widely sold throughout Central and South America and even the Caribbean due to the lack of fresh milk being available in urban areas as well as storage dificulties. By doing this, the company would boost their milk sales, which was probably the original idea.

    Tres Leches Cake is very popular in Nicaragua, Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Guatemala. It worked it's way north during the early 1900's. Here are a few recipes you may "need" to try!

    Tres leches cake is the moistest cake you`ll ever enjoy.
    I made this Tres Leches Hazelnut Cake (Cuatro Leches )
    with a twist using hazelnut creamer.
    In my recipe I posted step x step photos
    Batter being mixed

    container that is prepared to put the bake cake.

    Sliced caked in half place one half in

    Top with strawberry filling

    Top with other half of cake
    poke holes into the cake

    Pour the milk mixture over cake.Looks like a lot but that is what you want

    wrap it up and chill overnight

    remove to serving plate

    coat cake with topping

    The cake will have lots of creamy goodness.

    Now tell me can`t you smell the strawberries?
    I want to make this again. Strawberry`s are in season soon.
