What Does “Tres Leches” Mean?

The Spanish words Tres Leches translates to three kinds of milk so it’s just a simple cake which is baked and then soaked in a generous milk mixture.

This is an authentic cake I save for special days, And I absolutely love it! And I think I would have to say this version is even better than what you buy at Mexican restaurants!

This Tres Leches Cake Recipe I have been meaning to share for the last few days but somehow I always get caught up with other things and seem to forget. So, I’m really glad I have finally gotten around to sharing it.
Another thing I love about making it at home is that it’s cheaper, Why pay 8 dollars a slice when you can make a full cake at home for the same price.
