look out red velvet

Need an excuse to make this. Am pretty sure it will become my new favourite cake.

"The first time I made pastel tres leches (or three milk cake) I didn’t even realise it was Mexican. It was the idea of soaking a sponge cake with a combination of condensed milk, ideal milk and cream that bowled me over! Topped with cream or meringue, this cake is seriously moist. I went for the whipped cream and some coconut flakes, though I think toasted flaked almonds would be even better. This cake is rich, so small portions are key. But only so you can go back for more."
