1/9 Photos of Tres Leches Cake
1 hr 45 mins
Tres Leches Cake is a very moist cake filled with a mixture of "milks." It is a favorite Mexican and South American Dessert. I got the recipe from Chela, my housekeeper who is from Mexico. The Cake preparation includes 3 parts: the cake, the filling, and the frosting.
