So Yummy! Ever since my husband brought home a small loaf of Tres Leches from a Mexican bakery near his work, I have been looking for a way to re-create it at home. The first recipe I tried was a dismal failure. This recipe, however, is super easy and yummy! I had some very ripe bananas to use up, so it was perfect timing to make this. I made one for my family and we all loved it! My husband liked it so much, he bragged to his coworkers and then promised to bring one in for them, since they all love the Tres Leches from the local bakery. After trying it, his partner who grew up eating Tres Leches said it was very close to authentic and it was given his seal of approval! The recipe as it stands I am giving 4 stars. As many other reviewers already pointed out, the frosting is completely unnecessary and is just overkill. The authentic Tres Leches we enjoy from the bakery is covered in whipped cream and I did the same. With that change I would give this recipe 5 stars! Just be sure to poke lots of extra holes in the cake for the liquid to soak in. I had no problems at all with my liquid not soaking in as some others did. With extra holes, the liquid was quickly absorbed and I was able to frost and refrigerate the cake right after. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
