This is a delectable, delightful Cookies n Cream (Oreo) Sponge cake soaked in Milk mixture and topped with whipped cream and crushed cookies. This season , cozy yourself with this sweet heavenly treat and you could ask for nothing more

Tres Leches is a Mexican delight and also known as “Three Milk Cake”. It is served cold and tastes absolutely delicious. Here Butter Cake is soaked in 3 Milk (Evaporated Milk , Condensed Milk and Heavy cream/Full fat Milk) and topped with whipped cream/sweet Meringue which makes the cake ultra moist, absolutely sweet and drool worthy.

My kid really loves Oreo so I decided to surprise him and my hubby who has sweet tooth with this delightful Tres Leches cake. Since we are family of 3, so I have made a small cake, you can always double, triple the quantity of the ingredients if baking for family and friends

It’s preferred to use butter sponge cake as soaking oil based cakes makes it further soggy while butter cake holds the shape and lends richer taste. Now Tres Leches cake is quite sweeter than the regular cakes as it is soaked in sweetened milk and then topped with sweet cream.

*All the ingredients must be at room temperature

**You can use any tin – round/square or rectangular as desired

*** If you dislike the bite of the cookies, then just powder them before adding it to the batter

**If you do not have evaporated milk handy, then mix 6 tbsp. milk powder in 6 tbsp. water, there should be no lumps, instant evaporated milk is ready

***Its preferable to use bigger cake tin or tray while soaking the cake to prevent the liquid spilling off from the dish
