Every hispanic kitchen needs to have a tres leches recipe. This one is simple and delicious.

Tres leches is a delicious dessert prepared in many countries across Latin America. It means “three milks” because the recipe calls for a sponge cake (in most cases) to be soaked in three different types of dairy: evaporated, condensed and regular whole milk.
