In this traditional recipe for tres leches (three milks) cake, the cake is doused in a mixture of evaporated milk, condensed milk, and whole milk after being baked and cooled; poking it all over with a chopstick (or skewer) allows the cake to better soak up the milky mix for maximum flavor and soft texture. Then it's covered with sweetened whip cream and dusted with powdered sugar. It's utterly delicious and beyond compare.
