Tres Leches Pancakes

06.18.10

Have you ever had tres leches cake? For anyone who hasn’t, it’s heaven. You take a yellow cake and drench it in three kinds of cream. Pretty good idea, right?

I’ve been craving all things latino even more since my aunt visited. I miss her!

So I had this thought last week that I’d like to try tres leches pancakes, I thought it was worth pursuing. I took a stack of hot pancakes, layered them with fruit, and poured on a bled of three creams until they were bien mojado—nice and wet. They turned out to be pretty good (pancakes and cream? what a surprise).

But I found I liked it best having one pancake on a plate at a time. Because it’s rich, for one, and because that way the pancake can really soak up all that wet goodness.

Tres Leches Pancakes
Cook up a stack of your favorite pancakes. You’ll probably want a lighter pancake, whole wheat may be too heavy. While you’re cooking and flipping, mix the following ingredients:

1 12-oz. evaporated milk
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup heavy cream or whole milk

Once the pancakes are done, poke a few holes in them with a fork. Pour the cream mixture over them, making sure you don’t stop until they’re nice and wet. Serve with fruit, and dig in.
