          Tres Leches Cake, three kinds of milk, when combined, create just the right sweetness, density for a rich cake, making it moist but not mushy.

          Its origins are unknown, but some believe the inspiration for the recipe to have arrived upon South American shores on the back of cans of evaporated milk, and the cake as we know it is thought to have initially originated in Mexico, Guatemala or Nicaragua.

          The Tres Leches Cake can be from a homemade cake recipe or one made from a box mixture from the grocery store. 

          Bake your cake, allow it to cool. Blend your condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream together in a bowl. Poke cake several times with a fork, and slowly pour the milk mixture on cake. The milk mixture will almost cover the entire cake but will be absorbed as it sits in the refrigerator.
