To round out our week of Cuban-inspired recipes is our Layered Tres Leches Cake with Summer Berries. Each cake layer is super fluffy, since it’s base is of whipped egg whites, and after baking, it’s soaked in three milks for the most moist and tender cake you’ll ever taste. However, our tres leches recipe is not ultra sweet but made with reduced sugar for a light summer treat ;)
Being that you separate the egg yolks and eggs whites (to be whipped) in the mixing process, the result is a light and fluffy cake that is sweet yet not overwhelming. Then, after a brief cooling period, you soak the cake in three milks (evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whole milk) until the liquids are absorbed and the cake is perfectly moist. Finally, you top the cake off with freshly whipped cream for an irresistible dessert!
Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness!
