Expert Tips

  • What is "Healthified"? We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.
  • This moist cake gets its name because it's soaked in three milks ("tres leches" in Spanish). The cake can vary by region, sometimes containing fruit or chocolate, but the three-milk soaking is the key to its authenticity.
  • Fresh raspberries would be equally as nice as serving with fresh strawberries.
