Pistachio Tres Leches Cake/ Pistachio Milk Cake

Pistachio Tres Leches Cake/ Pistachio Milk Cake

Tres Leches Cake was there in my bucket list for a long time and finally, here it is! I’m so glad I did a pistachio Milk Cake! This is so yum moist and delicious with a wonderful creamy pistachio flavor! That color contrast of Mehandi green milk sauce with white cream is so beautiful, isn’t it? Once you have it you will fall in love with this beauty!

The delicious pistachio flavored cake is soaked in a creamy milk sauce and then topped with whipped cream is surely a keeper. You can also make a plain vanilla sponge or butter cake instead of pistachio cake and use the sauce. I took it for a party and my friends just loved the flavor and texture of this milk cake. A 3 layered dessert using three different types of milk, that is condensed milk, evaporated milk and fresh milk/heavy cream. I think that’s why name Tres Leches

That pistachio sauce was a killer and I’m definitely creating more recipes with this. In the milk sauce, I added powdered pistachio and was yum! I browsed and browsed for a good pistachio milk cake recipe but I can’t found a good one and so this one is totally my idea and so proud of it!hehe!

This post is special for me as i crossed 400 recipes and I gotta perfect one to celebrate it! My next wish is to publish a cookbook! Just a dream, only if we dream its gonna workout right? hehe In sha Allah someday!

  • I have been wanting to make pistachio milk cake for so long… your tres leches is just telling me in my head – why are you sitting over it? 😀 Now that I have my whole family at home, maybe it is right time to make it very soon, InShaAllah… congratulations on 400 posts.

  • In the ingredients it says oil and butter. But in your video I can see using only butter. Can we make using only butter , if then do we have to increase the butter quantity?
