In honor of Cinco de Mayo, the first time I've ever honored it by the way, I'm making Marcela's great Nicaraguan Tres Leches. I'm not sure how Mexicans and Nicaraguans feel about one another's holidays but this dessert is so good as far as I'm concerned all of Central America can enjoy it together.
1c. sugar
5 eggs yokes
5 egg whites
1 tbsp vanilla
1c. self rising flour
1/4c. milk
Topping: combine 1 can evap. milk and use this can for the rest of the milk measurements, 1 can condensed milk, 1 can whipping cream, 1 can whole milk (this does seem to be quattro leche, no?)
Whip egg whites, mix yokes, sugar, flour, vanilla and milk. Fold in whites and cook for 35mins at 350. Mix topping and pour on little by little until absorbed.
