Tres Leche Cake

Goodies

Our staff LOVES desserts. Every day of the week, someone brings in something they made at home. Usually by lunch, it’s gone! Cakes, cookies, muffins, pastries – you name it, we’ve made it. Oftentimes clients stop by the office and are lucky enough to grab a piece of dessert before it is all gone. Over the years, clients have asked for recipes for desserts they tried at the office. Thus, the idea of sharing a recipe each month in our newsletter. We hope you enjoy these desserts as much as we all do!

Tres Leches Cake

INGREDIENTS

7   large eggs, separated

1/2 cup  butter, softened

1 cup  sugar

2 1/2 cups  all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon  baking powder

1/2 teaspoon  salt

1 cup  milk

1 teaspoon  vanilla extract

1   (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

1   (12-oz.) can evaporated milk

3/4 cup  whipping cream Fluffy Frosting

Directions

1. Beat egg yolks, butter, and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until mixture is creamy.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to egg yolk mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

3. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold gently into batter. Pour batter into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan.

4. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes.

5. Pierce top of cake several times with a small wooden skewer. Stir together condensed milk, evaporated milk, and cream; gradually pour and spread over warm cake. (Pour about 1/4 cup at a time, allowing mixture to soak into cake before pouring more.) Let stand 2 hours; cover and chill overnight, if desired. Spread top of cake with Fluffy Frosting before serving. Garnish, if desired.
