TRES LECHES: THREE MILK CAKE

Tres Leches: Three Milk Cake
This is one of the best cakes I've ever had, my daughter in law is from Ecuador and she turned us on to this light,airy and not to sweet cake. This recipe is an easy version made with boxed cake mix.
1 yellow cake mix(with pudding)baked as directed in 13X9 inch pan

For topping mixture:
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup rum(or to taste)

To Finish:
Whipped cream,to cover cake
5 ounces sweetened coconut
Poke holes in the cake with a fork all over. Pour topping mixture over cake. Let mixture absorb completely in refrigerator.

Cover cake with whipped cream or cool whip and sprinkle sweetened coconut over top of cake.
OPTIONAL: add macadamia nuts,cherries and /or pineapple. or garnish with fresh fruit.

enjoy
