Tres Leches Banana Cake is an eggless sheet cake which is soaked in Tres Leches and topped with with Dulce de Leche Glaze!
Every few weeks I have 2-3 bananas ready to be baked. They ripe faster than we can eat.
I was going for a potluck & decided to use up those bananas for a sheet cake. Once the idea took hold, it grew into soaking the cake in Tres Leches & topping with Dulce de Leche. The name sounds long and complicated but it isn’t.
Tres Leches literally means three milks – evaporated milk, cream, sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream. Just writing these 3 names got my mouth to water. It is just a divine heaven to sip on. Believe me I did just that. ;)
Dulce de Leche I had already made and stored in refrigerator. I gave it few spurts in microwave to bring it back to desired consistency.
The best part about this cake that it is eaten or served in the baking dish itself. I am bad at removing cakes from pan. So for me this was a big advantage.
Soak the cake in Tres Leches overnight and then pour and spread Dulce de Leche. Refrigerate the cake till ready to serve.
The cake was a heavenly delight. Before leaving for Potluck I kept few slices for V at home. He couldn’t control and ate them immediately. And told me not to bring the cake back as it is so good that he won’t be able to resist and finish off the entire cake.
I was happy with the result, I tried so many new things. The cake was delicious in every bite. It was rich, moist and decadent.
