Tres Leches is made by soaking pre-made poundcake in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.
Tres Leches cake is popular in Central and South America, North America and many parts of the Caribbean. My no-bake recipe is about as easy as it gets. The three milks combine together with the poundcake to create a dense and creamy custardy cake. I love to make this recipe on a hot summer weekend and just scoop a big wet serving on to a plate when ever you need a little snack.
