Torta de Tres Leches // Three Milks Cake

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    • Awesome Laura! I think you are going to love it! I have so many other version ideas! I did a gingerbread caramel-y one last year. This year I want to make a “Christmas Chocolate” version. …the list goes on! Let me know how it turns out!

    How much liquid is a can milk?

    • Good question! I will update that information! The evaporated milk is about 1 3/4 cup and the condensed milk is about 1 1/4 cup. The final milk mixture to pour over the cake should be about 4 cups. Thanks for asking!
