Tres Leches cupcakes October 6, 2010

Filed under: Cooking Experiments,Cupcakes — Cristine @ 6:44 pm

NOTE: I am redoing these cupcakes. The recipe didn’t say to put the milk bath on while they were still warm. I think they’d soak better that way… and with some little holes poked in. The first batch was a FAIL. I will try again.

For this month, I’m making a traditional Latin recipe, to practice what I’m thinking I’ll do for the Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce event (no word on the date yet, I hope that goes through).  Tres Leches Cake Also called Three-Milk Cake is a dense, moist cake topped with a cloud of vanilla whipped cream. Tres leches cake is particularly popular in Nicaragua, Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Guatemala. The interesting part about this Latin American recipe is that the cake, after baked, bathes in a sweet milk concoction of three different milk products: evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whole milk or heavy cream, hence the name Tres Leches.  The three milks when combined, make just the right amount of sweetness and moistness, making it moist but not mushy. 

So far, these have these have cupcakes have been the easiest to make. The whipped cream topping is super simple, just heavey cream and sugar. I wish I had some fresh Chinese cinnamon, I think it would be great on the top, regular cinnamon will have to do!   The batter by itself is pretty plain, it’s the soaking that give them flavor. A variation of these could be a dulce leches flavor, which usually incorporates caramel and which were very popular in Florida at Cuban restaurants.

You have to make sure that if you make these, you get the muffin liners that have both a paper and a foil wrapper. If you don’t, the milk bath will soak through the wrapper. I saw some blogs where people actually transferred them to little paper cups-seems an extra unecessary step if you ask me!

Afternote: I should have poked holes in them when they were hot, too bad I didn’t read more recipes before I tried them to compare. The milk did not want to soak in. I’m thinking they didn’t make the cut, pretty much a fail. I don’t think I’ll attempt these again as to me, though it’s traditional they’re too bland for my taste. I might add more sugar or vanilla, but then, they wouldn’t be as true. No wonder everyone does the dulce leche (the caramel version which came after tres).

We’ll see what you say. I hope you enjoy!

脱毛サロンは近年、お店の数は物凄く増加しています。なのでどこの脱毛サロンに通うべきか、悩みます。

サロンの様子や予約が確保しやすいかなどを良く判断して、自分にぴったりの脱毛サロンをみつけましょう。

その中でも料金体系などは前もって良くリサーチして、悔いのない脱毛サロンを選択してください。

Being a praise and worship leader in a small group or
church may seem light years away from some of
the huge church worship meetings you see on television, but in fact they have many
things in common. If you want to access Hulu from The Philippines then you
need to use a little trick known as the virtual private network.
A vivacious and progressive city-state yet full of Asian warmth & hospitality; a place where the old & new coexist peacefully and the East and West come together;
a paradise for travelers as well as business professionals – Singapore is righty termed as the ‘Tourism Capital of Asia’ personifying an exciting and
remarkable destination to all.
