Tres Leches Cake for Cuban Diva BFF

by CynthiaYockey on September 11, 2009

Cuban Diva BFF is first generation Cuban-American — I know, what gave it away? — and she LOVES Mexican food. I do not know if she will love the recipe from The Pioneer Woman for Mexican Tres Leches Cake, but I am bringing it up because I have a humorous piece all set and ready to go if she will only get busy and translate part of it into Spanish. So I am hoping a nice piece of cake — drat! I just remembered she is allergic to one of the ingredients. And she’s not crazy about desserts. And she reads every word of this blog. Oh, well — I’ll think of something to inspire her. Meanwhile, The Anchoress says this cake is heavenly, and I trust her judgment.

Update, 9/13/09: Cuban Diva BFF reports that she LOVES this cake, allergy-be-darned!

I mean this with greatest love, but curse you. I gained some weight just looking at Pioneer Woman’s step-by-step instructions. Fortunately, I don’t have a mixer or I’d likely to run out and try it.

I R A Darth Aggie,

ROTFLOL! I shall compound my crime by pointing out that one of the commenters at The Pioneer Woman links to a CHOCOLATE version of this cake. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

All you really need is what I call a Tennessee whisk — a fork and the dexterity to make it go in a circle in a bowl of eggwhites so fast it’s a blur. (I come from pioneer stock.)

Chocolate does not faze me in the least. One advantage of being allergic to the stuff.

Don’t feel bad for me. I don’t miss chocolate (except for fudge, and there are non-chocolate fudges), and that means there’s more for you.


I knew I could make do with a fork or whisk and beat the snot out of those eggs. The only power food preperation device I own is a blender, and that’s mostly for making margaritas.
