Tres Leches

Corey had this at work and got the recipe for me because it was so good. I've made it several times already and it is absolutely delicious!

Tres Leches

5 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups whole milk
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch baking pan.
2. Sift flour and baking powder together and set aside.
3. Cream butter or margarine and 1 cup of the sugar together until fluffy.
4. Add eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of the vanilla extract, beat well.
5. Add the flour mixture to the butter or margarine mixture 2 tablespoons at a time, mix until well blended.
6. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
7. Pierce cake several times with a fork.
8. Combine the whole milk, evaporated milk, and condensed milk together. Pour over the top of the cooled cake.
9. Whip whipping cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 cup of the sugar together until thick. Spread over the top of cake.

Be sure and keep cake refrigerated. Enjoy, and don't think about how much it will certainly kill you with all that sugar and milk!
