killer dessert

Tres Leches
This dessert is truly yummy!!! I have been making it for two months now and I simply can't stop! Now I do make a different cake for me ( since I can't have the egg version) but I do think that this cake needs the sponge cake recipe because it needs to soak up the milk! With other recipes is tends to simply sit on the milk, so, unless you have dumb allergies like me, just make the sponge cake! And here is the recipe so you can make it!!
1 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
5 eggs seperated
1 c. sugar diveded (3/4, and 1/4c. )
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c. milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1/4 c heavy cream
ok now to put it all together... start with the flour, baking powder, and salt, in a bowl, wisk together. then in a seperate mixing bowl, beat egg yolks, and 3/4 c. sugar till light yellow. then stir in the 1/3 c. milk and vanilla. pour over flour mixture. mix just till blended. Beat egg whites till soft peaks form. pour remaining 1/4 c. sugar and beat till peaks are stiff. Fold the egg white mixture into the batter , and gently mix. pour into greased 9x13 pan. bake 35-40 min. or till a toothpick comes out clean. let cake cool. Then comes the really fun part.....
Mix 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 can evaporated milk, and 1/4 c. heavy cream. With a fork, poke holes all over the cake............then.........
pour the milk on top of the cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let it soak in......mmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmm good stuff.

For the whipped topping whip 1 carten heavy cream till stiff, add 1/2 c. or so of sugar, spread all over the cake, and top it all off with a cherry!
