While I’m reluctant to air all of my shortcomings as a cook – and there are quite a few, believe me – I’ve decided to come clean on something that I’ve felt a little guilty about for some time. I’ve waxed lyrical about the comforts and joys of baking before on this blog and I’ve [...]

Like many good recipes, the origins of Tres Leches Cake are shrouded in mystery. The name literally translates to “three milks cake” and that is basically what it is – either a light sponge or a butter cake soaked in a blend of condensed milk, evaporated milk and whole milk.
