Pan de Tres Leche (3 Milks Cake)

Moist White Cake mix, prepared to package directions
1 can (12 oz) Evaporated Milk
1 can (14 oz) Sweetened, Condensed Milk
1 cup Whole Milk
16oz Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbs Sugar

Prepare cake mix according to package directions. When cooled completely (30-60 minutes), poke holes in cake with a skewer or chopstick. Beat the milks together, then pour (SLOWLY!) over the cake, allowing it to 'drink' the milk in.

Cream together whipping cream, vanilla and sugar. Spread over cake and store in fridge for several hours (or overnight) to allow the cake to set. Serve with a dusting of powdered cinnamon, bakers chocolate, or thin fruit slices (banana, mango, papaya, etc) if desired.

*Usually you'll only find fruit on the cake for special occasions (births, weddings, etc) or at a snooty restaurant. Most people don't go through the fruiting it if they're just preparing it for a pot-luck, Cinco de Mayo, or family dinner.*
