Dos Leche Choco-Mocha Cake

This is my spin on tres leche cake which is  a light, airy sponge cake soaked with a mixture of three milks: evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream. Some say the cake comes from Nicaragua; others, Mexico. Tres and leche are spanish words and they mean three and milk respectively and dos means two. I think by now you would have guessed  some of my cake's ingredients. This is a very filling cake that tastes good had warm or cold. I liked it best when cold with a warm glass of milk. Didn't I mention that its a milk cake :-)

Chocolate cake (home made or semi-homemade; mine was from a box and I used only half of the cake mix )
Condensed milk -1 can
Milk -1/2 cup
Instant coffee-1 tbs
Chocolate chips -1/2 cup(optional)

Make  a chocolate cake, I made mine using only half a box of a standard cake mix pack. If you want to make every thing from scratch, you can follow my cake recipe ( but  just half-en  everything in it. While the cake is being baked pour 3/4th of the condensed milk into a dish, add the milk and microwave it for a minute or warm it on the stove top. When warm, add the coffee and stir till it dissolves completely. Once the cake is done while it is still hot and still in the pan, prick the cake all over and then pour the coffee mixed milks on top. Then cover the top with chocolate chips.  If you are planning to have it warm, keep it back in the oven that is still warm, but which is now switched off after making the cake. This will soften the chocolate chips. Keep it for about 3 minutes and then take it out. Pour the remaining condensed milk on top. If you are planning to have it cold cover it up well before you place it in the fridge.

Que Aproveche !! (enjoy!)
