Drunk Berries in Tres Leches Cake

READY IN: 1hr 8mins
Recipe by lalatina15

A twist on a classic Dominican favorite! I adore the original tres leches cakes for it's moistness, but I made this version for Thanksgiving this year, and even my mom - the cake lady - loved it!

This makes a delicious cake and it's beautiful as well. It is definitely sweet so the serving size needs to be small. DH definitely has a sweet tooth and he gave it a thumbs up. I'm sure he will be headed for some cake as soon as dinner is over. Made for Spring PAC, May, 2014.
