     Tres Leches Cake

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temp
6 eggs at room temp, separated
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2/4 tsp cream of tartar
2 tbs white sugar
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
12 oz can evaporated milk
2 tbs whole milk
whipped cream for frosting (see other recipe)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 9x13in baking pan.
Cream 1 1/2 cups sugar and unsalted butter 3-5 minutes until pale yellow and fluffy. Mix 6 egg yolks into the butter mixture, stirring in each one before adding the next. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt separately in a bowl, then gradually add it to the egg yolk mixture, alternating with 1 1/2 cups milk to make a smooth batter.
Beat 6 egg whites with cream of tartar in the bowl of an electric mixer until frothy. Gradually beat in 2 tbs sugar until the egg whites form stiff peaks. Gently fold in the egg white mixture taking care to maintain as much volume as possible. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick comes out clean - about 35-45 mins. Cool cake completely in pan on cooling rack.
Whisk sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and 2 tbs whole milk in a bowl. Use a large fork or skewer to poke holes all over the cake; pour the milk mixture over the cake. Leave in fridge overnight. Next day, top with whipped cream.
