Unexpectedly delicious! At first I looked at this recipe askance, but it turned out great. Scrumptious is the word to describe it. I topped the vanilla cake with plain sliced strawberries, to add a bit of color and it worked great. And it holds up well as leftovers for the second day - the whipped cream doesn't sweat or deflate at all. Definitely something to try.
Served this last night for my ladies curling team and got rave reviews. I served it with strawberries soaked with Grand Marnier. I will definitely make this again especially next summer when all the fresh local berries are available.
This makes a perfect Tres Leches cake. My family loved it!
Absolutely fantastic. I made the classic version this time and it was inhaled by a group of women that usually just pick at goodies. The cake holds the liquid beautifully so it's very moist but not dripping all over the place. We all loved it. You can read my full review here: http://bit.ly/O7uVD2
This is an awesome dessert! Made the cake and soaked in sweet milk the night before and topped it just before serving. Topped it with fresh rasberries and strawberries, delicious combo. Awesome reviews by kids and adults.
Not gonna lie, I had fears this cake would be soggy and flavorless. Not the case. I made it for a family dinner and everyone asked for seconds and my husband even declared it one of the top three cakes I've ever made. The only change I made was using 2 cups of heavy cream for the topping, which turned out fine. Thanks for another great recipe, Fine Cooking!
I thought this might be soggy, but it was really delicious-- soft and moist. I made the classic vanilla and topped it with strawberries-- a little fruit complements the rich, soft, creamy cake very well. I needed cakes for two different occasions, so instead of one 9x13, I made two 9" round cakes, which worked perfectly. The cakes rise high and then deflate, making them a beautiful sponge for all that dairy.
Delicious! Holds up very well too. I made the classic vanilla and served with unsweetened strawberries, raspberries and blackberries on top. Everyone loved it and the leftovers were still good for a couple of days. The only criticism is that it made too much whipped cream and I threw some away. I felt like I put quite a lot on top and still had a lot left, just wasteful in my opinion. I will only whip 1 1/2 cups of cream next time.
Easy and delicious.
I made the vanilla version with strawberries on top. This is a very easy recipe and was a big hit with everyone! I will make this cake again and again!
A dear coworker who loves coconut gave her notice that she was taking a new job. I was tempted to throw a pity party for myself, but I put my big girl panties on and organized a potluck for Robin in celebration of her advancement. The coconut version of this cake was a HUGE hit with everyone; most declared it the best Tres Leches cake they had ever eaten. I will be making this again soon. It would be perfect for a potluck after church!
Delicious and oh so rich! A little goes a long way! I would maybe cut down the amount of whipped cream on top, next time. Really enjoyed the subtle coffee flavor. Can't wait to try the coconut version! This is the perfect summer pot-luck dessert. The portions should be small because of the richness so it will feed a lot of people. Enjoy!
Easy and delicious. A perfect make ahead dessert. It's nice for the summer since the cake is served chilled.
