Tres Leche

Inspired by my upcoming trip to Mexico, I made a tres leche cake last weekend for my sister. Her fiance loves chocolate cake so I used a chocolate cake mix as the base. I made this after an evening in the pub with a few good friends, so it's not as stylized as it could be, but oh well. It tasted rather stylish! I served each slice with a big dollup of fresh whip cream.

I got the recipe from here. Ed is a fantastic food bloggie and his cake looks so pretty. This cake is easy to make, and is fresh and cool for a spring party. I prefer the vanilla version, but this chocolate one turned out just perfect for the occasion.
As you can see, there is quite a bit of liquid for one cake, it took several different 'pouring sessions' to get it all in the cake pan. I had to wait until the cake absorbed some of the liquid before I could pour more- it would have overflowed the pan.

On a healthier note, I finished a 60 min jog this am, then another 30 min incline walk at the gym after training legs. Sticking to my meal plan today and feeling good about the beach in mexico!
