This may look like a strawberry shortcake of sorts, but it’s not. No, it has way more depth. It’s a Tres Leche Cake which simply translates to three milk cake. To be exact, it’s a traditional Mexican dessert that starts with a white cake and is then drizzled or covered in a mixture of milk, evaporated and sweetened condensed milk.

I’ve always been a fan of this cake, no fussy frosting, not overly sweet, very rich but simple in flavor. I’ve had it without strawberries, but I really think the punch of fruit balances out the richness. In fact so much so, I took the original Better Homes and Garden recipe and flipped it from a two layer cake to seven layers. Along with that there’s just something about a highly stacked and multi-layered cake that makes it look so special.
If you are PB lover then you need to add this peanut butter cookie into your repertoire. Seriously. what’s better than a one bowl cookie? How about a four-ingredient, 20 minute peanut butter recipe, to include, making the cloud of marshmallow frosting to float at the center as well. And since it is flourless that makes this a gluten-free peanut butter cookie.

What the freak? The holiday cookie marathon just ended and here I am proposing cookies? Well, you’re talking to someone who sort of feels the same way about cookie baking right now, but trust me, grab your bake sheet. As I mentioned these are fast and easy but along with that—holy bee-jezus, these were a hit. My little guy who has no sweet tooth devoured this with his buddy.
Here you go, the Smash Cake before it was destroyed by a mallet. Can you see what I mean now? As I said the picture is just awful. Ah, well. the cake however is delicious.
Low Fat Chocolate Pound Cake
It’s everything a pound cake should be in texture and crumb: dense. That’s why to my disappointment when I dropped the cake from the top of a four-step ladder just to see it splatter its life away, it frustratingly did no such thing. It just landed with hardly any damage. Maddening. So can you imagine how much pleasure I took smashing it with a mallet.
