Tres Leches de Café (Coffee Three Milks Cake)

Tres Leches de Café (Coffee Three Milks Cake)

Tres leches cakes are a favorite of mine. They come together easily and they are much moister than traditional cakes. I have had enormous success making variations of tres leches in the past including traditional tres leches cake, chocolate tres leches cake, coconut tres leches cake and tangerine tres leches cake. I am pleased to report that this Coffee Tres Leches Cake was no exception!

Given the popularity of the traditional tres leches cake, I had a feeling that Coffee Three Milks Cake would be a terrific follow-up. You can really taste the coffee in this cake and I mean that in the most phenomenal way imaginable. It’s moist and absolutely bursting with coffee flavor. For someone like me who could eat tres leches cake with coffee for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this cake is a dream come true.
