A deliciously moist cake made with three types of milk: sweetened condensed, cream, and evaporated milk. Perfect for any occasion.
Preheat oven to 350'F.
Butter a 9"x11" glass pan, then lightly flour.
Separate the eggs from the yolks and place them in different bowls.
In the bowl of a stand up mixer place the yolks. Slowly add the sugar while beating on high. Continue to mix until the yolks are fluffy. Mix in the vanilla.
Sift the flour into a bowl. Add in the baking powder and salt.
In another bowl beat the whites until they form soft peaks.
Slowly fold the whites int the yolk mixture using a spatula. Next, slowly sift the flour mixture into the yolk mixture and fold ingredients carefully.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place in center rack, and bake for about 35-40* minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely before adding the milk mixture.
In a large bowl whisk together evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and milk.
Pour milk mixture all over the cake, and allow it to soak for about an hour before frosting.
Beat whipping cream until thick. Spread over cake using a flat frosting spatula.
*I usually check my tres leches cake after about 35 minutes to make sure it does not overcook.
