Homemade Tres leches cake

Who doesn’t like the creamy tasty Tres Leches cake?

I can remember when i lived in New York City and friends and or family would have parties and they’ll order Tres Leches cakes from the local Hispanic bakery. The best part of the party was the serving of the cake. I also recall many people trying to recreate this cake and not knowing how i guess because they figured it was more to it on making it. Well as the years past i myself wanted to learn since when i would get a bit disappointed when i would go to my local market and only be able to purchase by slice at such a costly price I knew there had to be another way to get my hands on this type of cake. And today I’m sharing my recipe with you! So, if you have not tried this cake yet then print this recipe and try it out i am sure you and your family will enjoy it.
