Tres Leches Cake

On the weekend we cooked a Mexican meal to celebrate Kerrie's birthday. I made tortilla soup, chicken mole, jicama sprinkled with lime juice and a chile-lime seasoning we bought in Mexico, an orange, onion, avocado salad and rice. For dessert we had tres leches cake.

The cake is best made a day ahead so it has time to soak up the luscious, milky syrup. If you have extra syrup, you can drizzle it onto the individual serving plate. For an extra decadent touch, top each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with fresh fruit.
