This month’s recipe was chosen by Lisa of Smiley’s Sweets and Creations. Tres Leches just happens to be one of my favorite desserts. Growing up it was a dessert that we had relatively often. Here in Miami it is readily available in almost every grocery store and Latin restaurant and it just happens to me one of my grandmother’s specialties. I love it, so I was excited to try Martha’s version, but I was a little disappointed.
It’s not that the cupcakes weren’t good. I took them to a family event and they all got eaten, but we all agreed this recipe was not the best. Unfortunately my grandmother’s recipe is a secret even from me, so I don’t know how her recipe differs from Martha’s, but the texture was not quite right and it just felt like something was missing. I do really like the idea of Tres Leches Cupcakes. It is really different and fun. I would just use a different recipe next time.
