Tres Leches Cupcakes

Some of my favorite recipes are not found on Pinterest.


I know, I know, hard to believe.

But, Pinterest cannot deliver the satisfaction of tasting the yumminess you see!
And a Church function (that ladies have slaved hours in their kitchen to make the best possible dessert) now that is where you can see and SAMPLE. (My kind of recipe shopping.)

Enter, Tres Leches Cupcakes.
(And you're welcome!!!!)

This ultra moist, yummy cake is usually a whole cake, but I just love anything cupcake!
I saw, loved, tasted, loved and then asked for the recipe. (Just so I can share with you!)

Tres Leches Cupcakes
(Adapted slightly from here)

What You'll Need:
6 large eggs, separated
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup flour, sifted
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 cups whipping cream
 3 Tb. sugar

Here's How:
1. Preheat oven to 325*. Line muffin pans
2. With an electric mixer, beat egg whites, baking soda, and salt on medium until soft peaks form.
3. Reduce speed and add egg yolks and sugar. Mix until smooth. Fold in melted butter and then fold in the flour in 3 or 4 batches.
4. Pour batter into prepared pans, filling them 1/2 way.
Bake for 25 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, combine the 3 milks.
6. When the cupcakes are cooked and still warm, poke (a dozen) holes in them using a bamboo skewer.

7. Pour the milk mixture over the cupcakes, a tablespoon at a time until all the milk mixture is used.
8. Remove the cupcakes from the pans and cool completely.
9. Whip the remaining whipping cream and sugar until stiff peaks form.
10. Pipe or spoon onto cupcakes and sprinkle with cinnamon.
