I tried this recipe the first time I wanted to make Tres Leches cake. The cake recipe is just OK for a regular cake. Its missing proper proportions for a moist/fluffy and softer regular cake.
But the biggest mistake is - Tres Leches cake is a SPONGE cake soaked in three different kinds of milk, and this recipe is NOT a sponge cake.
Two important things about a SPONGE cake is - No butter (fat), and Separate the eggs. The Egg whites are beaten to stiff peaks, and folded into the batter at the final stage before beating.
I made the cake again with a Sponge cake recipe (check out Pioneer Woman recipe), and by God! That, my friends, was Tres Leches cake....seriously!
