LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
In this recipe for tres leches cake, a basic vanilla cake is soaked in a mixture of soy milk, coconut milk, and coconut cream are used to create a dessert that's moist and decadent. Topped with coconut cream frosting, fresh mango, and lime zest, this cake tastes like a cross between a mango margarita and a traditional tres leches cake. It's not overly sweet, making it perfect for any celebration.

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

For the Tres Leches Milk Mixture:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk, separated from a can of full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond mixture

For the Coconut Cream Frosting:

  • 1 cup coconut cream separated from a can of full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

For the Topping:
