Tres Leches Cake

Girl’s Night on Monday was Mexican themed, so I made Tres Leches Cake.  It was YUMMY!

I adapted this recipe out of multiple cookbooks. 

Cake
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
6 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
Milk Mixture
12 oz can evaporated milk
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup half and half
2 tbsp good quality dark rum

Preheat oven to 325 and grease a 9×13 glass baking dish. 
Mix flour cinnamon, & baking powder in a bowl, set aside.
Beat egg whites until stiff.  While mixer is running, add in sugar and beat until disolved.  While mixer is running, beat in egg yolks and vanilla.  Beat in flour mixture and milk, alternating.  Bake 40-45 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.

Cool 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, whisk together milk mixture.  Prick cake, gently but thoroughly and pour milk mixture over cake.  Soak 30 minutes and then refrigerate at least 4 hours.    Serve with homemade whipped cream.
