This was really yummy and it was a lot like the one I had at a local Cuban restaurant. Everyone liked it! I followed the recipe, except used half the sugar in the whipped cream. It was still very sweet with the half a cup and a cup would have been too sweet for me. When the cake was done baking it was harder than I thought it would be and I had a difficult time getting the milks to soak in. When I poured them on top they only stayed there a minute and then ended up on the bottom of my pan with the cake floating on top! I left it overnight but it still seemed like not much had soaked in so I tried to make my holes in the cake bigger and pushed the cake down so the milks came to the top. Luckily, by the time we ate it later in the day, a lot of it had soaked in (or leaked out of my container, but that's a whole other story. Be careful!). It was a pretty good consistency, though I might like it more if it sat another night and really soaked it all in. The flavor was great though! I will make it again. Next time I may take it out of the oven a little sooner than 30 min to see if it's not as hard.
