Since husband studies as bartender ( for fun only!) we love having a cocktail or two in the week ends.
To celebrate the start of our summer holidays we organized a mexican dinner with a friend to eat food paired with mojitos and other nice cocktails.
I had a very little time to prepare everything, the menu comes up together in minutes but I had no ideas about the dessert.
Searching around the web and asking about a mexican dessert on my Instagram stories the tres leches cake appeared.
It seemed very basic to me, like ” nothing special” but I had very little time and it seemed very quick to make so I decided to give a try.
Well I decided wisely, this cake is really fantastic!!
It starts like a plain coffee cake then you pour the milks mix and it become a sort of pudding.
It has to be eaten cold with a lot of whipped cream and fruit on top so you can definetely call it a summer dessert!
Hubby and my best friend went crazy about this cake and I can say me too. 🙂
For best results make the cake a day in advance so it can rest in fridge enough and be careful to have the right space into the fridge! 😀
Use a rectangular or a squared cake tin ( about 9X9 inches).
