I live in Mexico and have an "American" bakery here. A friend of my son wants me to make a "Nata" cake and I don't know what that is. I have found recipes in Spanish, but my Spanish isn't good enough. I think nata is the cream that rises off of unpasturized milk, what you would use to make butter in the "olden" days. I have access to this milk, but have no idea what to do with it after that. If someone has a recipe, I would also appreciate your telling me what consistency it should have since I have never seen or tasted this type of cake. Is it a wet cake like a tres leches? I am really out of my area of expertise on this one, lol. Help, ....., please?
Normally I don't do "Mexican" desserts. I figure they have enough excellent bakers of their goods here already. However, his friend can't find anyone close enough to make one for her for Valentine's Day, so she has asked for my help. Thanks so much.
