Guy Stuff – Raspberry Tres Leches

20130210tl0007-EditGuy Stuff – Raspberry Tres Leches

This is one of my favorite desserts, a creamy sweet smooth thick cake filled with rich goodness, topped with my favorite fruit, raspberries! I love the tang of the berries against the homemade frosting and cream of the milks. It’s a classic and is super easy to make even from scratch like I show you. If you want or need to you can always use boxed mix and canned frosting, but trust me, it’s NOT the same. A glass pan is suggested 350 for 30 minutes, drop down to 325 and 20 minutes if using metal then check at the end till done.

For this you’ll need:

Eggs
Whole Milk
Heavy Cream
Evaporated Milk
Condensed Milk
Sugar
Flour
Baking Powder
Butter
Vanilla
Salt
Raspberries (or topping of your choice if any)

    Bryan, I am so making this tonight…it will be a little ghetto as I don’t have all that fancy equipment, but how could it go all wrong with those ingredients?

    • Justin

      I went with the box mix, added an extra egg (3 when the box said 2)and still used the stick of melted butter. I used fresh strawberries, because my kids don’t like raspberriers. My mother-in-law absolutely loved it (points for me). I think I will make it again, but do it exactly like Bryan shows rather than the box, I was just lazy…

      I don’t typically like cake because it seems dry to me, but this isn’t dry (obviously) and boy is it rich and creamy!
