How to make it

  • Tres Leches
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat 6 egg whites until fluffy. Add sugar while beating eggs. Add 8 egg yolks while beating. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour and milk. Pour into an ungreased 13x9" baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Be careful not to overfill pan with batter, since frosting will be placed on top.
  • While cake is baking, combine the ingredients for the custard filling in a blender and blend well. Pour over the cake slowly as soon as it comes out of the oven. Chill cake for 7-8 hours.
  • For the frosting, beat 2 egg whites until fluffy. While beating, add sugar a little at a time. Continue beating as you add the syrup. When the frosting is stiff, spread over cake. Decorate with cherries.
  • This dessert is best when served chilled. It is very moist. To decrease moisture use less of the custard filling.
  • NOTE: If you want the cake to be less moist, you can also reduce the evaporated milk in the custard filling by 1/4 cup. Use the 1/4 cup evaporated milk plus 1/4 cup water in place of the whole milk in the cake.
