3 leches cake recipe, this cake is the best cake you ever try. it is so easy and full of flavor.
what to use instead of media crema?
If you cant find media crema you can use milk. 1 cup.
Where can I find the media crema?
you can look in 2 places:
- in the international aisle.
- where all the bakery stuff are, it will be next to the evaporated milk, sweet condensed milk.
Can this cake made in advance?
The cake yes, bake it, let it cool, then you can freeze it covering with plastic wrap. then the day that you are eating it get it out of the freezer like 2 hrs in advance and proceed to do the rest of the process.
How long can the 3 leches cake last in the fridge?
if it last more then 1 day, they just covered with plastic wrap up to 1 week inside the fridge.
Do I have to let it cool completely before adding the milk?
yes, and this step is very important, if you don’t do this step, it will turn out like a dense ,ugly cake that you wont be able to eat.
Should it be served cold?
definitely this is a cold cake, (I can eat it either way)
What other toppings can I use instead of strawberries?
you can leave it just with the whipping topping or you could add toasted coconut or sliced almonds
