Tres Leches Cake Recipe

This is the most amazing thing you will ever have in your mouth. I swear. I know these things. Don't doubt me.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt6 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 1/2 teaspoons Mexican vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon Walnut extract
1 - 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk1 - 13 ounce can evaporated milk
3 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons sugar
Fresh sliced fruit
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9 by 3 springform pan with a veggie spray like Pam.
Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium sized bowl.
Mix the eggs and sugar in the mixer bowl and beat on high speed for about 5 minutes or until it doubles in size. Add in half a teaspoon of vanilla extract and half a teaspoon of Walnut extract and water. Mix well.
Gently fold the flour ingredients into the egg mix.

Pour the batter into the springform pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes.

You can tell when its done because the center of the cake will be firm and the edges pull away from the pan.

Put the cake on a plate.
In a bowl mix the condensed milk, evaporated milk and heavy cream together. Add the rest of the vanilla extract and if you want another teaspoon or half a teaspoon of walnut extract. (YUM!) Mix well.

Cut the top of the cake layer off to expose the sponge portion of the cake. Poke holes all over the top of the cake with toothpicks or a knife. Pour the cream mix over the cake. USE ALL OF IT. TRUST ME. I NEVER LIE.
Once the cake is 100% cool, spread the whip cream on top. If you want, sprinkle chopped walnuts and fruit on top.

Serve to those you love or want to love. This cake is amazing and will make anyone want to marry you, and if they don't after one slice they aren't worth your time anyways. ;-)
