I am completely new to Tres Leches Cake. I just discovered it a couple of months ago, but was intrigued the moment I saw a recipe online. So I made some tres leches cupcakes early this spring and brought them to family dinner at my parents. They were a big big hit!!
Especially my father and I were always a big fan of soaked cakes, which are kinda hard to find in Germany. German cakes are usually packed with fruits and cream or chocolate and nuts, but sponges are always dry. In Spain however you often get pastries where the sponges are soaked and syrup. So whenever we are in Spain we always visit local “pastelerias” to get our share of those delicious soaked cakes and pastries.
