Tres Leches Cake

After trying several other recipes, this was by far the best! It has a nice firm texture, absorbs the milks very well, and best of all, is delicious!!!

Ingredients

  • Cake 1 1/2 cup cake flour pinch of salt 1 tsp baking powder 1/3 cup oil 1 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla 5 large eggs 1/2 cup whole milk Milk Syrup 14 ounce condensed milk 7.6 ounce Media Crema (by Nestle) 2/3 cup evaporated milk 1/2 cup regular milk (your choice, 2%, whole, skim) 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

Preheat oven @ 325 degrees. Prepare an 8" pan or 2 6" pans. Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Mix oil, sugar and vanilla, then add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the milk. Fold in the flour mixture a little at a time. Bake for 30-40 minutes. For the milk syrup just mix all the ingredients together. Once the cake is cool, poke holes with fork/knife and slowly pour the milk syrup over the cake a little at a time depending on how moist you like your cake. You can frost cake with Amazing Stabalized Whipped Cream (recipe here at CC).

I do not know what Media Crema is. We do not have it in my country. Could you tell me what is it and if this can be replaced by something else?
I did a search for the Amazing Stabalized whipped cream and could not find it. Anyone?
Found it, when I spelled it correctly
I offer advice and propose a question. :-) You can buy Media Cream on Amazon.com. Can someone please paste the link for the Stabalized Whipped Cream? I cannot seem to find it for the life of me.
I need help. i too could not find the recipe for the amazing stabalized whipped cream....someone help me or send it to me..thanks
This sounds great and I am going to have to try it. I love all the flavors Nestle has. I use the Dulce De Leche all the time ;-)
you may use one cup of regular heavy cream or half & half instead of MEDIA CREMA. It works the same, has the same consistency.
Here's the link for the whipped cream. http://cakecentral.com/recipes/7347/amazing-stabilized-whipping-cream
si no encuentras media crema, tambien puesdes usar sour cream, que es lo mismo, lo siento es dificil para mi expresarme en ingles, pero logro entenderlo, y leerlo un poco, gracias, y si hay alguien que hable espanol en este sito?
delia-murillo yo hablo un poco espanol. lo puedo leer muy bien, pero escribir es otra cosa! yo se que escribo con muchas errores pero quero tratar ayudarte. si necesitas algo, me dices. esta bien? jtvasquez@sbcglobal.net
You are perhaps not finding the recipe for stabilized whipped cream because it is misspelled - it is "stabilized" not "stabalized" That should make a difference.
Delia-Murillo: si no encuentras media crema, tambien puesdes usar sour cream, que es lo mismo, lo siento es dificil para mi expresarme en ingles, pero logro entenderlo, y leerlo un poco, gracias, y si hay alguien que hable espanol en este sito? Rough translation using free online translator. If you do not find average cream, also puesdes to use sour cream, that is the same, I feel it is difficult my to express to me in English, but profit to understand it, and to read it a little, thanks, and if there is somebody speaks Spanish in this situated one? So I am assuming that media cream is the same as cream or possibly heavy cream, or as she says, you may substitute sour cream.
media crema is half n half, half milk and half cream
First of all sorry for the misspelling ooops, second the Media Crema is made by Nestle, you can find it where the evaporated and condensed milk is, at least that is where my supermaket (here in texas is HEB grocery) has it.
you can find Media crema at walmart on the hispanic/latin foods aisle
