This recipe is amazing. This is the first recipe I have actually felt obliged to write a review for. Everyone was so impressed with this cake. I did double the milk mixture and also took another reviewer's idea and added 1/4 cup spiced rum to the milk mixture (I eliminated an equal amount of the evaporated milk) and I also added a tiny dash of rum extract to the frosting, although I think I'll leave that out next time and just use the rum in the milk mixture for a little extra flavor. This recipe makes a huge cake, it definitely won't fit into an 8x11 pan. I took my time pouring on the milk mixture and rubbing it into the top of the cake, and I drained out the liquid from the bottom a few times and poured it back over to make sure it really got worked in. Came out perfectly moist and soooo yummy. I probably could have left out maybe half a cup of the milk mixture as the cake would have been slightly less messy to serve if it was a bit less moist.
My cake's currently sitting in the fridge, having baked it last night, and I'm already thrilled with how it turned out.
I used 1.5x of the filling as recommended, and I think that's the perfect proportion. I can't wait to top with homemade frosting and strawberries - adding fresh fruit will definitely help with how sweet the cake is.
By far the best tres leches cake! Cake came out huge also.The frosting was also very good but next time I will put CoolWhip also.
Followed recipe except I did soaked cake overnight as I had the time. It turned out great! Was a big hit. Thanks for a great recipe.
This cake is absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great, plus it is easy to make! Thanks for the recipe!
Awesome cake. Some people don't want to try it due to its soggy appearance, but once they do, they are hooked.
AWESOME cake my family and I love this recipe. Thank you for sharing.
What a great and easy to prepare cake! I made if for a cook-out with Ecuadorian and Colombian friends. It was a big hit!
I absolutely love this recipe!!! I do agree that it isnâ€™t wet enough so I add 1 can of coconut to the filling. I decorated mine with fresh coconut, strawberries, and blueberries. It was delicious!!!
