peach cake - Page 2

post #16 of 21
I made a Tres Leches cake for my DHs coworker from Mexico - he and his family absolutely loved it!! icon_biggrin.gif The only problem was my meringue went flat icon_cry.gif so I used a thin layer of bc on it and it was a little too sweet. He paid full price for it, even though I offered to take $ off for it being too sweet. icon_surprised.gif

I got the recipe from CC http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-1140-0-Tres-Leches-Three-Milks.html After I baked the cake, I called someone that's made it before to confirm it should smell like a giant pancake!! thumbs_up.gif I also froze the cake because of time restrictions, no complaints. I was thinking of making one for our family for the coming holiday...thanks for the strawberry idea!!

I am getting ready to try the Tres Leches cake but an a little scared. I was wondering if when you turn the cake onto a cake board, does all the milk run out or is it really all absorded into the cake? I imagine that the cake would have to stay refrigerated because of the milk? Any info would be great!

The three milks are added after the cake is baked. Yes, some milk may seep out and this is considered a good thing. The cake should be on a platter so there's no chance of spillover.

I made the peaches and cream cake from the Cake Doctor book and it was VERY moist and really good. I used regular ole whipped cream to ice it. We like peaches though.

Just noticed all the tres leches talk! I love to make that icon_smile.gif I always refridgerate it cuz it tastes good cold I think. I make one that's pretty much the same as the Pollo Tropical's in Florida. The moister the better!

Bubblezmom-let us know how the new recipe turns out. The recipe I used on here is a scratch cake but having never tasted a tres leches I'm just going on my friend's opinion about the taste. Can't wait to hear!!
I kept the one I made refrigerated b/c of all the milk and whipped cream!
