The Cake Recipe:
1 Vanilla cake mix
3/4 C softened butter
1/2 cup of water
grated lime peel from one lime
Tres Leche sauce (tres leche means three milks)
can garnish with fresh fruit and whipped cream if you like.
Preheat oven to 350, combine ingredients (you know how, wet stuff and dry stuff and blend together). Bake in 2 greased and floured 8" cake pans for 45-50 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes in pan then cool completely on a wire rack.
2 cans of evaporated milk
2 cans of condensed milk
1 pint of heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp Vanilla
(I'm pretty sure this is not on ANY diet plan out there)
Combine in sauce pan, heat to the point it's about to boil and then remove from stove top. Put in a glass container and let it cool.
Once cake has cooled, prepare a baking dish, pot whatever you have that's bigger around then the cake, with plastic wrap. Place one cake and poke holes in it, pour some of the sauce on, place the other cake on top, poke holes and pour more sauce (be sure you keep some of the sauce for serving the cake) Wrap the cake up and put in the fridge.
You really should do all the steps above the night before you want to serve the cake...but Jason and I ended up childless that night so watched a really bad movie instead - had to wake up early and get this started.....But while it was getting all yummy in the fridge, I was able to go see my oldest hit two home-runs and a triple (in all fairness, he actually only hit one home run...I mean it was way beyond the out field -- the other two were from over throws and a dropped ball -- but it's little league we'll take what we can get!)
Okay, back to the Tres Leche Cake...
