Soaking milk

  • 1 Cup Whipping cream
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Condensed milk
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh cream/whipping cream
  • Rose petals
  • Few Pistachios Crushed


  • In a bowl sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Keep aside.
  • Beat eggs with sugar for 6-7 minutes. Then add sunflower oil, milk and vanilla extract. Mix it slowly with a spatula.
  • Add the mixed flour part by part to the creamed mixture and blend well till no flour remains.
  • Pour the creamed mixture into the greased cake pan. Cook it in low flame for 35-40 minutes.
  • Spongy vanilla cake is ready now.
  • Whisk together the milk, sweetened condensed milk and cream. Once combined, pour the leches over the cake. Refrigerate the cake overnight. Every hour or so keep pouring over the milk mixture that collects in the platter back into the cake, this way the cake will absorb the leches mixture better and have a rich taste.You can pipe or spread the icing onto the Tres Leches to give it a good decoration. Refrigerate for about an hour or more and serve the Tres Leches sprinkled with rose petals and crushed pistachios..
