“Same great flavor, without all of the work! This is a great dessert to serve after barbeque or other spicy foods, and is a popular treat here in Texas. It is far more portable than a traditional tres leches cake so bring it along to your next barbeque or fiesta. If you have never had tres leches cake, expect the cake to be very "wet," the three milk combination helps remove the burn from chiles from your mouth.”
