I attempted to make this after having a friend's Tres leches cake. His cake was an old authentic recipe.
I was disappointed by this recipe.
The instructions were simple enough to follow, the cake texture was good, but it was definitely missing something. I recall the cake he made as being melt-in-your-mouth delicious and there was quite a bit of liquid.
This was more spongy and as the instructions called for - I discarded off some of the milk mixture - I immediately regretted it. The cake was more dry than i'm used to.
I also believe that the cake is supposed to be served chilled, but i cannot recall if it's the milk mixture or the cake itself......
I added vanilla and strawberries to the whipped cream topping and some sugar for a little more sweetness. I was glad i did that.
