Tres Leches

Serves: 6 servings

Ingredients

Cake

¾ cup almond milk

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons apple sauce

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 flax eggs

1 cup cake flour or all-purpose flour

1½ teaspoons baking powder

¼ cup coconut sap sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

Non-dairy milk mixture

½ cup Nature's Charm condensed coconut milk

½ cup Nature's Charm evaporated coconut milk

½ cup almond milk

Instructions​

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Lightly coat an 8-inch round cake pan with non-dairy butter and dust it with flour, making sure to shake off any excess flour. Set aside.

  • Curdle the non-dairy milk by whisking together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Set aside for 10 minutes.

  • In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add the sugar and combine.

  • In a smaller bowl whisk together the curdled milk with the apple sauce, vanilla and flax eggs.

  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient bowl and mix well.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Check the cake after 20 minutes. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool in pan 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Whisk together the condensed milk, skim milk and almond milk in a bowl.

  • Arrange the cake on a serving platter. Poke holes all over the cake with a skewer. Slowly spoon the milk mixture over the cake until you have the desired wetness. Cover the cake and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours giving it time to absorb the milk. You may not use all the milk depending how wet you want the cake. I only used half. Cover and refrigerate the remaining milk mixture and spoon some on a plate before serving your cake.

  • Meanwhile, make the frosting if using. Combine the tofu, maple syrup, vanilla, confectionary sugar and evaporated milk in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Remove cake from refrigerator and frost. Garnish with strawberries. Or just garnish with fruit.
