    Title: Classic Tres Leches Cake
    Categories: Cakes, Desserts, Dairy
    Yield: 10 servings

    4 lg Eggs; separated, room temp
    2/3 c Sugar; divided
    2/3 c Cake flour
    ds Salt
    3/4 c Heavy whipping cream
    3/4 c Evaporated milk
    3/4 c Sweetened condensed milk
    2 ts Vanilla extract
    1/4 ts Rum extract

    1 1/4 c Heavy whipping cream
    3 tb Sugar
    Dulce de leche; opt

    - opt

    Place egg whites in a large bowl. Line bottom of a 9-in.
    springform pan with parchment; grease the paper.

    Set oven @ 350+|F/175+|C.

    In another large bowl, beat egg yolks until slightly
    thickened. Gradually add 1/3 cup sugar, beating on high
    speed until thick and lemon-colored. Fold in flour, a
    third at a time.

    Add salt to egg whites; with clean beaters, beat on
    medium until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining
    1/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high
    after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Continue
    beating until soft glossy peaks form. Fold a third of
    the whites into batter, then fold in remaining whites.
    Gently spread into prepared pan.

    Bake until top springs back when lightly touched, 20-25
    minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to a
    wire rack to cool completely.

    Place cake on a rimmed serving plate. Poke holes in top
    with a skewer. In a small bowl, mix cream, evaporated
    milk, sweetened condensed milk and extracts; brush or
    pour slowly over cake. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours.

    For topping, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add
    sugar; beat until peaks form. Spread over top of cake.
    If desired, top cake with dulce de leche or strawberries
    just before serving.
