We're putting cake in your coffee, but not just any cake. Tres leches means "three milks" in Spanish. The classic Latin American tres leches cake is a sponge cake soaked in evaporated milk, half-and-half (or heavy cream), and sweetened condensed milk. Pastel de tres leches is a requisite dessert at most celebrations and holidays throughout Latinidad.
If you have a thing for coffee drinks inspired by desserts, you will love this coffee confection. Tres Leches Cake Iced Latte is also influenced by Thai and Vietnamese iced coffee, which use sweetened condensed milk.
"This recipe was very easy to prepare with ingredients you might have in your pantry already. The great thing is that you can make a big batch and serve it over a few days. It has the perfect amount of sweetness and a very creamy texture. I made mine with espresso and couldn't be happier." —Tara Omidvar
