Tres Leches literally means three milks in French, so a Tres Leches cake is a cake made from, well, three types of milk. This decadent and fluffy cake is made from a spongy cake soaked in milk syrup. This milk syrup contains evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.
While that may sound like a whole lot of milk, this dessert is actually not to milky and is more on the sugary side. Its pleasant and not to heavy flavor makes it a great, light summer dessert to serve after a large bbq meal.
