  1. YUM! I’m from Texas, and they don’t mess around with the desserts. When I think of quintessentially Texan or Southern desserts I think of pecan pie, peach cobbler and banana pudding. This looks delicious…I like your blog!

  2. Oh wow, happened upon this and it looks awful for my diet and I think Im in love anyway! wow, Im so bookmarking this!

    wow, I might have to make this very very soon

    I dont know if I should thank you but I want to anyway :)

  3. This looks amazing! So rich and fantastic. Perfect for a special occasion!. Although that cherry on top thing is funny, I never knew that… but I hate hate hate maraschino cherries so I might skip that!

  4. Cozydelicious: Yeah, there’s somethin’ ’bout those things that ain’t right. Nothing in nature is that color. I used to have a friend in grad school that would eat the cherries AND the stems. Weird, huh?

  5. You know I always thought the white on the top was somewhat like merengue. I’m from Miami so it may be different. The consistency is much thicker than whipped cream. Either way I will try it out. Thanks

  6. With lots of respect…tres leches is not Tex Mex….i am a true tex mex native, my ancestors found Texas and we are from South Texas. Tres leches cake was very foreign to me. I seen it in California where it is popular. California has a lot of Mexicans ( meaning born in Mexico). Just like to keep it real. :)

  7. I wonder how much a can of condensed milk holds? In other words, how much can I spoon into my mouth and still have enough for this cake? Also, my sister-in-law (so no blood relation here) eats ONLY the stems of the cherries. Yep, let’s my brother have the fruit and she eats the stem. I have no words for that. I bought a 6″ cake pan today (found one at Michael’s while looking for frames for my little art quilts), so I’m hot to make us cakes to eat. If this winter doesn’t get over soon, I’m going to be waddling out to weed my yard, because I stay in and cook (and then eat. As in a lot). #wintergoaway

  8. Tres Leche is my favorite cake. I make it at least once a year for family gatherings, so I was pleased to come across your recipe. I made it tonight for me and my husband. It was a hit! I’m wondering why you only used two milks instead of three. I always add coconut milk for my third. :)

    • haha, you noticed! When scaling down recipes, it’s hard to include absolutely everything. The cake is served with whipped cream, so I guess that’s milk #3? Do you know Rebecca Rather? She’s a pastry chef in Texas, and she makes Muchas Leches cake. I want some of that!! :)
