Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
I'm a white guy that has never baked anything before (I'm much more useful on the grill), but I decided to make this cake for my Mexican girlfriend's birthday since this is the only kind of cake she likes. I was worried that it wouldn't come out right because I've never baked before, and especially because of some of the reviews saying the ingredient measurements weren't perfect. So imagine my surprise when she said she liked it and it was almost exactly like how she makes her tres leches cakes. Personally I've never eaten this kind of cake so I have nothing to compare it to, but it was interesting. I added self rising flour so the cake wouldn't be so thin, and used a cup and a half of half and half milk instead of two cups of whole milk because I thought it wouldn't absorb that well. But it did, and it left just the slightest amount of milk on the bottom of the pan. It was very moist and not soppy or soaked like other reviewers have said. I poked a ton, and I mean a TON, of holes through the cake and it soaked it up very well. Also, instead of a full cup of sugar for the icing, I used a half cup. It still came out pretty sweet. All in all, a very interesting and tasty cake.
