Personal Notes:
This recipe came to me from Doug Taylor @ the College of Medicine Admissions Office. Doug & took a vacation to Costa Rica & the hotel where they stayed served this cake. Doug "asked" (probably offered him $20) for the recipe & the cook gave it to him. Tres Leches means 3-milk in Spanish.
