Microwavable Mini Tres Leches (Three-Milk) Cake in 5 minutes

The other day, we were ‘FaceTime’-ing hubby’s sister in the US, and she goes on and on about this amazing ‘Tres Leches Cake’ that she tried. The way she explained it, I just couldn’t wait to try it. I immediately looked it up on Google and this is what Wikipedia had to say:
Tres Leches Cake is a basic sponge cake or butter cake, soaked in three kinds of milk: whole milk, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. It is then topped with whipped cream and fruits of your choice.

Sounds amazing right?

I’ve followed a basic microwave recipe that can be made in a mug but I’ve used a square shaped microwavable box for easy slice-and-eat, and for better visualization.
You can follow the same recipe to make this in sandwich makers, waffle makers, or any other way you would like it. Call them Tres Leches Sandwiches or Waffles. 😀

Serves: 1-2

Beaten egg – 1
Sweetened Condensed Milk – 1 tbsp
Melted Butter – 2 tbsp
Sugar – 2 tbsp
Flour – 4 tbsp
Vanilla essence – 2-3 drops
Baking powder – 1/4 tsp
Three-milks Mix:
4 tbsp – Whole Milk
4 tbsp – Evaporated Milk
4 tbsp – Sweetened Condensed milk

Step 1: Mix all the ingredients for the cake and microwave for 2 minutes.

Step 2: In a bowl, combine the three-milks.

Step 3: Poke holes in the cake with a fork and spoon-in the three-milks mix.

Step 4: Turn the cake upside down onto a plate and poke more holes. Spoon-in the rest of the milk-mix.

Step 5: Top with whipped cream and chopped strawberries, or you could just skip this step and dig in.

This is seriously some deadly good stuff! Thank you Blessy for this! :*
