Good Evening,
 
TRES LECHES, simply denotes 3 MILKS. Thus this dessert, very common throughout Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, as well as Mexico and Argentina, is a delicious blending of three different types of milk, usually prepared for a salsa over pound or sponge cake.
 
Here is my dear Cuban Galician Miami Beach relocated friend Maria Vilarchao┬┤s recipe;
