Borinquen Resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica Circa May 2007.  Wow have we really been married almost 4 yrs!?!? OMG

Tres Leches Cake (which we ate almost EVERYDAY in Costa Rica)
  • 1 yellow cake mix (with pudding) baked as directed in 13 by 9-inch pan
For topping mixture:
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
To finish:
  • Whipped cream, to cover cake
  • Crushed pineapple, macadamia nuts or cherries (all optional)
Poke holes in the cake with a fork all over. Pour topping mixture over cake. Let mixture absorb completely in refrigerator.
all the decadant layers in their glory :)
I opted to mix the crushed pineapple in with the the cool whip then covered the cake with it.  If you want sprinkle sweetened coconut over top of cake or place a cherry in various places. I have seen it served all of these ways! 
{topped w/ toasted coconut}

Serve and Enjoy!!
