The words “tres leches” means three milks in Spanish. And true to its name, this cake is made with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and whipping cream. These are the famous three milks. Because the cake is soaked in milk it must be refrigerated. Tres Leches Cake is extremely dense and moist but it will not become soggy.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
