Do you mean leche? Try doing a search in the recipe section.

Or do you mean lychee, like the Asian/Polynesian treat?

I didn't realize it was a type of fruit. Hmm...learn something new everyday. Apparently the US spelling is litchi. I'm doing searches with both spellings. I'm kind of curious about it myself now.

I found this online....

Lychee Butter Cake

1- 14 oz can lychees (about 1 cup lychees, reserve the liquid)

2 cups (240g) flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup (160g) unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 cup (160 g) sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 baking pan.

Drain the lychees and cut into small pieces; set aside.

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl and set aside.

In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together on medium speed for several minutes until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla. Mix to combine.

Add in about 4 -6 tablespoons of the reserved lychee liquid slowly. Mix between additions to fully incorporate before adding more.

Toss the lychee pieces in the flour mixture to coat (this will help keep them from sinking to the bottom of the batter).

Add flour and lychee mixture to the batter and mix to combine.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack before serving.

Thank you all for the recipes. Here in South East Florida we can get fresh Lychee from the farmers. Cake is delicious when filled with SMBC and pieces of lychee in it.

The cake I had was filled with SMBC (Swiss Meringue Buttercream), and that's what I'll be using to fill my cake.
