Maybe your reaction to “Tres Leches Cake” on a Mexican menu has been like mine - indifference. Since I don’t speak Spanish - I just ignored it. I’ve been wanting to explore what all the fuss is about when it comes to this cake - which interpreted means “Three Milks Cake”. It’s really not all that foreign.
I understand (after reading & searching) that this cake is likely the most popular cake sold throughout Mexico. You can tell how out-of-touch I am with Mexican cuisine because I never really imagined Mexico having many bakeries (as I know them anyhow).
