Tres Leches Cake with Seasonal Fruit

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lori Perez

Not quite a cake, not a custard, something truly delicious inbetween. My husband and I attended a cooking class with friends and had this for dessert. We wanted to lick the plates but thought it rude! Simply the best we have ever had the pleasure to eat.

I wanted to make tres leches cupcakes as a surprise for my boyfriend and I made two versions--this one and another trest leches recipe on this site that is called "cuatro leches". I thought he would love the other recipe that uses hazelnut creamer as the fourth milk (since he loves it in his coffee), but to my surprise, he loved this recipe and devoured it! I topped the cupcakes with Reddi Whip and mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries) and it was fantastic. I can't wait to make this for his upcoming birthday. Thanks for sharing.
