COFFEE TRES LECHES CAKE RECIPE

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO! When it comes to Mexican Cuisine, Rick Bayless is one of my go to resource when it comes to Mexican Cuisine. Watch and learn how Rick makes coffee tres leches cake “Oaxaqueno” style. Tres leches is a traditional Mexican cake, which means “three milks” cake, because the cake is soaked in three different types of milk. Rick infused the coffee, Mexican vanilla, and Mexican cinnamon in the tres leches. Mexican vanilla extract are often described as “creamy, woody, spicy, and sweet.” Beware of Mexican vanilla extract that contains coumarin, a toxic substance with potential toxic side effects — banned in the United States, so don’t be tempted to pick up bargains from south of the border. Mexican cinnamon is delicate and lighter in color, with a sweet, mild flavor with a faint note of citrus.

HOW TO MAKE MEXICAN CHURROS RECIPE

Churros are favorites in Mexico and Spain, often served with hot chocolate, the perfect pairing for the chilly winter afternoon quick-pick-me-up snack. These crispy fluted pieces of deep-fried dough coated with cinnamon-sugar adds a pleasing flavor and crunch. It is super easy and quick to make. Watch and learn how Rick makes authentic Mexican churros with Martha. To check for doneness, break it open — it should be just a little soft inside (but not doughy). Too low an oil temperature and the churros will take a long time to color, usually bursting apart before they’re brown; too high a temperature and they’ll brown quickly but not cook through. Serve with dulce de leche or creamy, rich chocolate sauce!

Churros

You’ll need: churrera, a cookie press fitted with a 3/8-inch fluted opening, or a heavy-duty plastic pastry bag fitted with a 3/8-inch star tip
