The following recipe is my spin on Tres Leches Cakes ( Milk Cake). I have made it for years and i decided to change it 3 years ago to make it more appealing for adults. I would omit the alcohol if children will be eating it but why would you want to? just give them ice cream. The original recipe calls for a heavy sponge cake that is packed with calories due to the amount of eggs as well as the whipping cream that is part of the liquid that is poured onto the cake. I was asked by friends to make this cake so i came up with a lower calorie version that requires YES wait for it " ANGEL FOOD CAKE" who does not  have a recipe for ANGEL FOOD CAKE? if anybody wants one i would be happy to add it to my blog however with this recipe you wont even have to come up with one.  This Recipe serves up to 6 people.

2 Store bought Angel Food Cakes ( you can find them bakery section) or you can bake your own.
2 Cups of whole milk ( or skim milk if you want to lower the calories).
2 Cans of Condensed milk ( you can use fat free condensed milk).
2 Cans of Evaporated Milk ( you can use fat free as well).
1/4 cup of Rum plus 4 tablespoons more ( I use COCONUT RUM just makes it extra Yummy).
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract.
Strawberries or raspberries for decoration.

you can use a 9 x 13 pan deep pan ( I use a 4 inch deep white corning ware pan).

Cut the Angel food cake in slices and arrange in the pan.
Sprinkle the pieces of cake with the 4 tablespoons of Rum then set aside.
take an electric mixer or a whip and mix well the 2 cups of milk, the evaporated milk, the condensed milk and the teaspoon of vanilla. When these ingredients are mixed well, add the 1/4 cup of rum.
Taste it ( if you like it a little bit stronger feel free to add more rum).

Pour the contents over the cake pressing it  with a spoon until it gets completely absorbed.

Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.

Decorate the cake with the strawberries or raspberries before serving. The cake will be soft and almost like a pudding. Feel free to pour the extra liquid over each slice when serving.
