"I’ll admit that this isn’t the quickest recipe in the world (if you want a super quick one, my Oreo mug cake is the best)! But this tres leche cake is surprisingly easy to make! The name ‘three milks’ gives everything away about this recipe, because pouring on evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream makes this cake ultra-dense and moist! Yum. Just don’t be surprised if the whole pan is gone in a night because this cake is amazing!"
