3
egg whites
1

Expert Tips

What is "Healthified"? We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

This moist cake gets its name because it's soaked in three milks ("tres leches" in Spanish). The cake can vary by region, sometimes containing fruit or chocolate, but the three-milk soaking is the key to its authenticity.

Fresh raspberries would be equally as nice as serving with fresh strawberries.
