Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHAT DID I DO WRONG? WHAT DID I DO WRONG? I followed the recipe exactly. I used a normal fork and even wiggled it around to make sure that the holes were big enough. In the end the cake had a few spots that soaked up the chocolate but mostly it was a huge cake sitting in a tub of chocolate milk. It was not good at all!!! So then I put the cake on my plate and dipped it in the chocolate milk and WAY to rick. I don't know, it was not good at all!!

My cake did absorb the milk mixture for the most part. The second time I made the cake i accidently added unsweetened chocolate instead of semi-sweet and turned out jst as delicious. Maybe people who say it is too rich should try adding unsweetened chocolate instead. I will definitely make this again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this for Father's day and everyone absolutely loved it! Made this for Father's day and everyone absolutely loved it! I loved that it's not as juicy as other Tres Leches Cakes (which typically they are very juicy) so if you prefer it juicier, add more, and if not, half it like others have said. For me however, it was a perfect combination of just slightly crumbly and juicy. Plus, WAY more easier to make than other Tres Leches recipes.

The kids licked the cool whip off the top and adults said, Yeah, it's good. I usually get requests for recipes and a lot more enthusiasm! To be honest, I never even ate it. It ended up being a lot of work that was not worth the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was excellent and easy to make. This cake was excellent and easy to make. However, I would use less of the liquid the next time I make it. The edges of the cake were more like pudding. It wasn't "cakey" until the middle. You could probably use half to two thirds of the liquid and be ok. I will try it again.

Just a note..I have tried several of these and made some..it IS normal to have liquid in the bottom..They do not absorb 100% It is not a mistake. If you are not sure you will like the texture, consitiency or the flavor I would suggest you try it elsewhere first.

Before you leave a negative review about this cake being too soggy, please note--it is *supposed* to be soggy. There should be liquid in the bottom of the pan after it's baked. That is part of the awesomeness that is tres leches cake!
