This week: Pastel Tres Leches from La Tolteca
¿Como se dice?: What goes better with a slice of cake than a glass of milk? A slice of cake already soaked in three types of milk. Pastel Tres Leches translates to three milk cake, a cake doused in evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream. It's a cake that comes with its own sweet, milky sauce and best of all, it's not a soggy mess. At La Tolteca, it's covered in frosting with jaunty sprinkles and a glazed strawberry. Both kid-friendly and it will make your inner child smile.
