Two Words: 3 Leches.

So yeah, I live in California and the place is overrun by Mexicans.  But they bring with them some delightful things, like tamales and chile rellenos and 3 leches cake.  If you haven't ever tried 3 leches cake, it's like, a really yummy kind of white cake, sitting in a puddle of (I'm assuming) some sort of milk concoction.  Yes, that's right - white cake in a puddle of sweet milk.  It's like, to die for.

I'm going to go get some right now from the Mexican store on the corner.

Would love that recipe. It sound like it is a white cake sitting in a leche cream sauce.Just a guess; but I would say the sauce is made with pureed leche, a bit of milk cooked with an egg yolk or two.
