Baking update: Tres Leches Cake

Am just about to go and bake something for Souvik to munch for the time that I am away, but this photo caught my attention, and I felt like putting it up. Earlier this month we did a Mexican themed lunch at home, and I dug out a recipe for Tres Leches cake. NOT the lechers’ cake (as Souvik fondly called it) but it means 3 milk cake. There are many recipes online, and I can’t remember which one I used, but it’s basically a sponge cake soaked overnight in a blend of 3 kinds of milk – regular, evaporated and condensed. Before serving, you can make it as pretty as you want; I was generous with whipped cream and a fresh strawberry for color. Doesn’t look like much, but I can assure you there wasn’t anyone at the party who didn’t want seconds, and thirds…and without the cream or fruit…
