Three Milk Cake

Tres Leches (Three milk cake)

9 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon lime or orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract/aroma

1 can condensed milk (397g or 14 oz)
1 can evaporated milk (12 oz or 354ml)
1 can of cream.. I'm going to assume either slagroom or something of the sort would work, maybe kookroom. I think to measure you could fill the can of condensed milk. I believe they are the same sizes at home.

3 egg whites
250gr sugar
a touch of vanilla extract

Beat egg whites until white and fluffy and set aside.

Beat egg yolks with sugar until you get a cream mixture. Add lime zest and vanilla. With a wooden spoon, mix in the beaten egg whites.

Add flour slowly, in folding motion.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a big pyrex pan with butter and flour so it won't stick, pour cake mix in and bake for 45min or until a knife comes out clean.

Once done, stick a fork all around the cake.

Blend all three types of milk in the blender and pour over the cake.

Beat 3 egg whites until fluffy and add sugar. Use this to cover the cake and sprinkle the top with cinnamon.

Refrigerate until cold.
You will have 3 leftover egg yolks, mom suggests making flan with them, lol. :P But I'm sure you'll manage to find something to do with them!
