Coconut and Lime Tres Leche Cake

IMG_6186

A creamy coconut cake, with a hint of lime, caps off Day 4 of our Cinco de Mayo recipe week. It’s so good…. and calorie free says my husband (ha!ha!ha!)

I started with a basic white cake…. I used a cake mix, and 1 oz. coconut extract. Baked until light and fluffy, golden brown. Remove from the heat and poke with holes, I know, seems kinda crazy, but you want the three milk flavors to saturate the cake.

Tres Leche mixture

2 cans lite coconut milk

1 can Sweetened condensed milk

1 lime, zested

1 cup heavy cream

Whisk together and let stand for a few minutes. Pour slowly over the warm cake, allowing the milk to soak all the way through.

Cool cake completely, and top with whipped cream, and another lime zested. You’ve got your perfect Coconut Lime Tres Leche cake. Happy Baking!IMG_6216
