Ingredients You’ll Need:
For the Sponge Cake:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 4 large eggs, separated
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the Milk Mixture:
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tbsp Innocent Cold Brew Coffee Rum
For the Whipped Cream Topping:
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Prepare the Sponge Cake:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks and granulated sugar until pale and creamy. Add the milk and vanilla extract, and mix well. Gradually fold in the dry ingredients.
- Whip the Egg Whites:
In another bowl, whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the cake batter until well combined.
- Bake and Cool:
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan.
- Prepare the Milk Mixture:
In a bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, heavy cream, and Innocent Cold Brew Coffee Rum.
- Soak the Cake:
Once the cake has cooled slightly, use a fork to poke holes all over the surface. Slowly pour the milk mixture over the cake, allowing it to absorb the liquid.
- Chill and Prepare the Topping:
Cover the cake and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld. Before serving, prepare the whipped cream topping by whipping the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until soft peaks form.
- Top and Serve:
Spread the whipped cream over the chilled Tres Leches cake. For a final touch, you can dust the top with cocoa powder or sprinkle with chocolate shavings.

As you take your first forkful of Coffee Rum Tres Leches, the combination of moist cake, creamy milk mixture, and the nuanced coffee rum create a symphony of flavors that’s truly unforgettable. Each bite is a journey through layers of indulgence and sophistication.
