Vanilla Tres Leches Cake

Directions

  1. Allow eggs, milk, and butter to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch fluted tube pan with cooking spray for baking; set aside. In a medium bowl stir together flours, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar and beat on medium speed about 5 minutes or until very light and fluffy. Using a small sharp knife, split the vanilla bean half in half lengthwise and use the knife to scrape the seeds into the butter mixture.* Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the pure vanilla. Add eggs, 1 egg or 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Alternately add flour mixture and 3/4 cup of the evaporated milk to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. (Cake will appear shallow in the pan.) Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Invert cake onto a wire rack.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine remaining 1/4 cup evaporated milk, the sweetened condensed milk, whipping cream, and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla. Using a long skewer, poke holes all over the top of the hot cake. Using small spoonfuls, evenly spoon the condensed milk mixture over the hot cake, allowing the milk mixture to soak into the cake before adding more. Cool cake completely.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

After removing the vanilla bean seeds, you can use the scraped-out vanilla bean pod to make vanilla sugar. Place the pod in an airtight container with granulated sugar. Cover and shake a few times. Let stand for at least 1 week or up to 6 months.

Test Kitchen Tip

Letting measured amounts of eggs, butter, and milk stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before making a cake allows the ingredients to blend together more easily and gives the cake more volume.
