I made this as directed except I separated the eggs & whipped the egg whites with about 1/4 cup of the sugar and then folded into the other batter. The cake itself came out ok, but not quite wet enough. I think because this recipe produces a higher volume, the milk mixture needs to be increased by 1/2. However, if you don't like your Tres Leches Cake to be uber-wet, then making it as stated will suit you just fine. Thanks for sharing your recipe Chris!
*** I just made this cake this past saturday for my office Christmas dinner only I substituted the 1/2 pint of whipping cream for half and half. Although I rushed through it and only allowed the cake to soak in the fridge for about 4 hours, everyone loved it! Turned out most people liked it because it wasnt drowned in syrup but rather only half wet. Im making it again for Xmas only this time I'm bringing along a container filled with the left over syrup. That way, those who like more syrup can pour more on themselves. Thanks for the great recipe!
