The instruction how to make Tres leches cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180u00b0C. Spray a 16 x 26cm (base measurement) slab pan with olive oil spray to lightly grease. Line the base and 2 long sides with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Use an electric beater to beat the egg yolks, vanilla and 100g (1/2 cup) of the sugar in a bowl until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is thick and pale, and a ribbon trail forms when the beater is lifted. Use a large metal spoon to fold in the baking powder and one-third of the flour. Fold in one-third of the milk. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with the remaining flour and milk.
  3. Use a clean electric beater to whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly until sugar dissolves and the mixture is thick and glossy. Add one-quarter of the egg white mixture to the flour mixture. Use a metal spoon to fold until smooth. Fold in the remaining egg white mixture.
  4. Spoon into the lined pan. Smooth the surface. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes to cool. Place the pan in a large, deep baking dish. Use a skewer to pierce holes over the surface of the cake.
  5. Combine evaporated milk, condensed milk, cream and 1 tablespoon of rum in a jug. Slowly pour over the cake. Cover. Place in fridge overnight to soak.
  6. Use an electric beater to whisk together the extra cream, extra sugar and remaining rum in a bowl until firm peaks form. Spread over the cake. Cut into squares. Top with mango and mint leaves, if desired, to serve.
