unbelievably moist and refreshing

The best cake to serve in the hotter summer months! I have served this so many times and it is crazy how unbelievably easy (my type or recipe!) I adapted my recipe from martha stewart. You can use fruit, but I love the play of tres leches with chocolate- it’s perfect with coffee!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat eggs and 3/4 cup sugar on high until pale and thick, about 4 minutes. Add vanilla and beat to combine. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture and beat to combine. With a rubber spatula, fold in melted butter until incorporated. Transfer batter to dish and bake until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating dish halfway through.

In a medium bowl, whisk together milks. Poke warm cake all over with a wooden skewer or toothpick, then pour milk mixture over top and let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.

Whip cream and 1/4 cup sugar in mixer to medium peaks in your mixer I use kitchen aid. This usually takes several minutes. If it doesn’t peak and thicken, change the speed setting to a higher one.

To serve, spread whipped cream evenly over cooled cake. Grate your fave chocolate in small shaved chips.
