Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Typical yellow cake? Not! You'll savor a very moist cake that's been soaked in three full-flavored milks ("tres leches" in Spanish). The preparation is similar to a "poke" cake, where a cake is first baked, then poked and a mixture poured over it. This cake can vary by region, having fruit or chocolate, but the three-milk soaking is the key to its authenticity.
