Margarita Tres Leches Cake Recipe
The first time I ever had Tres Leches cake I felt like I was in Heaven. I have made it at home using several techniques and flavors and this Margarita twist on the classic is my favorite. —Laurie Lufkin, Essex, Massachusetts
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup tequila
1/2 cup butter, melted
6 tablespoons key lime juice, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Whipped cream and lime slices, optional
Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Grease and flour a 13x9-in. baking pan; set aside.
Beat sugar, tequila, butter, yolks, 3 tablespoons lime juice and vanilla until well blended. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into yolk mixture until blended.
Add confectioners' sugar and cream of tarter to egg whites; beat with clean beaters until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter. Transfer to prepared pan.
Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place pan on a wire rack. With a wooden skewer, poke holes in cake about 1/2 in. apart.
Beat condensed milk, milk, evaporated milk, whipping cream and remaining lime juice until blended. Drizzle over cake; let stand for 30 minutes. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
Cut cake into squares. Garnish with whipped cream and lime slices if desired.
Yield: 15 servings.
