Torta 15 de las Tres Leches (page 211) – cafe take

hector’s new take on ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Torta de las Tres Leches (page 211), is baked on a bottom crust of crushed nuts.  coffee extract is added to the milk sauce, to turn the tres leches cake into a coffee take!for this 6×3″ cake, i used 400 grams of leches sauce, 75 grams of coffee extract, and 25 grams of kahlua.

the frosting is whipped cream stabilized with gelatin.  it is grainy because i piped it too cold, but i think the graininess adds a realistic effect to the rose petals…

    • K, thx! i make my own coffee extract. 1 part of ground coffee and 2 parts of water, by weight. leave at room temperature for 24 hours, then filter with a fine mesh strainer and then with a coffee filter.

      this extract is great for making iced coffee, dilute about 2 to 3 times and add ice.

    Beautiful H. So how cool/warm is it supposed to be for it not to be grainy? The grainyness is not due to overbeating?

    Very much looking forward to the mango version :).

    • J, I haven’t checked the temperature, but it should be warm enough for gelatin to be fluid.

      no, if is overbeating, you would see liquid separation at this level of whipped cream graininess.
