Hello sweet readers from so many different countries! I know you must be interested in cakes from all around the world. And as laChouett hosts a weekly ‘Pick the World’ event I thought I’d finally make a contribution!
This week it’s about Guatamela and I discovered they do a version of the ‘tres leches cake’ that I’ve been curious about for a while. Leche means milk by the way and there are three (tres) different kinds of milk involved: regular, evaporated and condensed! Then I found a blog appropriately named ‘Cross Cultural Recipes’ with lots of international recipes including Tres Leches cake from Guatemala. If you like, you can also see some photos here.
Now I haven’t tried making this cake yet, but I do intend to one day! 🙂 Coincidentally, fellow baker Michelle from Giraffes Can Bake posted a Tres leches cake recipe today so that could be interesting. She refers to the cake as being from Mexico and it seems it is also popular in many Latin, Central or South American countries. Here’s another recipe in Spanish: Pastel Tres Leches.
But I have a few questions for you dear reader:
Have you ever eaten or made tres leches cake and from which country?
Do you have any advice for me about making this cake or any other comments?
Would you like to make this cake too and we can compare notes?!
Bye for now and happy Guatemala day!!! 🙂
