Mocha Tres Leches CakeYvette Marquez-Sharpnack from Muy Bueno represented Clabber Girl at Hispanicize 2014.  Her time in Miami inspired the flavors of this Tres Leches Mocha Cake.  She writes:

“I developed this dessert, because it reminds me of my trip to Hispanicize— it’s sweet, spicy, and fabulous, just like Miami. This mocha tres leches cake is rich and moist and has unique flavors with the addition of coffee and a spicy kick of cayenne pepper. What I love most about tres leches cakes is that they are sliced and served directly from the pan with no need to invert the pan. That is always my biggest fear when it comes to baking. I’ve had many cake disasters as I flipped them on a serving platter. Tres leches is very forgiving and the whipped cream over the top covers up any flaws.”

Serve a slice with fresh raspberries for a stand alone treat or a grand finale after a special dinner.
