How to make Tres Leches Cake?

Here I have talked about How to make Tres Leches Cake with step by step procedure!

Tres Leches Cake as many of you know that its a three Milk Cake! It’s a Sponge Cake that doesn’t have any fat in it. It sounds interesting right?

The Egg itself gives perfect texture and volume to the cake. The Egg Whites are separately beaten up to stiff peaks and folded into the remaining batter to keep the cake super soft.

I haven’t tasted this cake till I made one myself. Mostly its not available in any bakeries, since its loaded with milk. This Tres Leches Cake is so satisfying to make your tummy full with just one slice.

Here I have used Ossoro’s Vanilla Bourbon Essence instead of just a Vanilla Essence! This makes every slice so indulgent!
