I got this off allrecipes.com... I've always meant to make it, but never get around to it. Maybe I'll try it for xmas. I've had it before, and it's delicious.
Tres Leche (Milk Cake)
Yields: 24 servings
This cake is made with three layers: Cake, filling, and topping. There are 4 types of milk in the filling and topping (whole milk, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream). [I guess that would make it Quatro Leche, but we'll ignore that.]

2 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups milk
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3.Cream butter or margarine and 1 cup of the sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of the vanilla extract, beat well.
4.Add the flour mixture to the butter or margarine mixture 2 tablespoons at a time, mix until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.
5.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Pierce cake several times with a fork.
