About this recipe
These are amazing, just like the Tres Leches Cake, although I thought to call these "Two Leches", as they only contain two types of milk. I also did not use cake for two reasons, first because the cake got very mushy and unpalatable in my first tests. The second reason is that I figured, my readers would appreciate something simpler that they could make with the kids to say goodbye to summer and vacation. I used ladyfingers instead, and it worked fantastically. I hope you like them as much as my kid and I did.
