Ingredients

Sponge Cake

  • 4 Eggs/Anday
  • 130 g Caster Sugar
  • 160 ml Milk/Doodh
  • 160 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Milk Bath

  • 170 g Evaporated Milk
  • 130 g Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 50 ml Double Cream

Whipped Cream

  • 100 ml Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Decoration

  • Pistachios crushed

Instructions

  • Crack the eggs, separating the egg yolks and egg whites into two different bowls
  • Add the egg whites into one bowl and whip until soft peaks form – soft peaks have formed when the cream forms peaks briefly when you lift the whisk before fall back into the cream
  • Add the caster sugar then whip further until medium peaks form before setting aside – medium peaks have formed when the cream can form peaks that hold their shape well when the whisk is lifted but have a slightly curled top
  • To the egg yolks add the milk and vanilla extract then mix until well combined
  • Sift the plain flour and baking powder into the batter then whisk until there is no trace of flour – be careful not to overmix as this will give a dense cake
  • Line a 20cm/8-inch square cake tin with parchment paper
  • Bake in the centre of preheated oven at 175°C/320°F/gas mark 3 for 30-35 minutes
  • In a jug mix the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk and double cream together
  • Once the cake is ready usea fork to poke holes into the warm cake then pour the milk bath on to the cake – you can use a spoon to push the liquid into the cake
  • Leave the cake to rest for at least an hour – the cake can be left to soak overnight
  • When ready to serve prepare the whipped cream by adding the double cream, icing sugar and vanilla extract to a cold bowl and whisk until stiff peaks are about to form 
  • Transfer the whipped cream into a piping bag with a star nozzle then pipe onto the cake and top with crushed pistachios
  • Your tres leches cake is ready!
