BAKE ALONG #43 : TRES LECHES CAKE

Had this particular cake on my to-bake-list and finally
bake it along with Lena, Joyce and Zoe
A full recipe gave me a loaf and two cupcakes
leaving them to soak overnight in the fridge
I had this piece with whipped cream, DH has his plain.
DH said: like that lor (he finished the cupcake)
 my cake batter was not done well (crusty) as I was trying
out my new food processor - which was a mistake
anyway Tres Leches Cake Done! next item please!
The milk mixture was tasty, great on the rocks with a splash of water!

  1. Hi Emily,

    I had been thinking of baking this Alton Brown's recipe at first but decided on Pioneer woman's one for its well-reviewed status.

    Can taste the difference with or without milk mixture? DH likes it plain but which one did you prefer?

  3. Next item indeed lol My sponge cake was a bit undercooked in the middle so when I added the soaking liquid some area in the middle of the cake turned out a bit soggy but still quiet delicious ;D Your tres leches cake looks yummy and love the added strawberries !
