Festive Tres Leches Cake

Posted by Hallee on May 5, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

A beautiful finish to any festive Cinco de Mayo celebration. Tres leches means three milk – so this translate to “Three Milk Cake.” This actually blends the idea of a three-milk cake from Latin American tradition with a rum cake from Puerto Rican tradition.

Emergency Substitution: Sweetened Condensed Milk

Posted by Hallee on May 5, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Recipes

Sometimes when you find you didn’t have great planning and took advantage of a relatively well stocked pantry that didn’t end up being as well stocked as you thought, and when you’re baking a cake at 5:00 in the morning and you have two sleeping toddlers upstairs and a husband in Afghanistan, and it’s not really convenient to run to the store to grab that one pantry item you need right now, it’s nice to know that there is a possible emergency substitution. (heh) This happened to me. As I was making Tres Leches Cake for Cinco de Mayo, I went to put together my “three milks” and discovered I didn’t have any sweetened condensed milk. Normally, I would have just set the cake aside to do later, but the milk needs to be added to the cake while it’s still warm, and at 5AM, there was no way I could do it. So, I discovered a good sweetened condensed milk substitution. The cake tasted fantastic, so I’m calling this one a success.

Quick & Easy Pumpkin Cheesecake

This recipe intrigued me. I don’t normally use box cake mixes, but having a cheesecake with a box mix as a base really made me want to try to see how it turned out. It was very good!
