Lauren's Tres Leches Cake - Guatemalan

While Lauren thought that her recipe might be very similar to Cristina's, the Guatemalan version definitely has some differences. Here it is:

6 eggs
1 c. sugar
1 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. vanilla

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 c. milk

Mix the egg yolks and sugar, then add the flour and baking powder. Next add the egg whites and vanilla. Pour into pan and bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes (until edges turn golden.)

Remove cake from oven and using a fork, prick the top of the cake. Mix the three milks together and pour over top of cake.

3 egg whites
6 T. sugar
vanilla to taste

Beat egg whites, to stiff peaks, slowly adding sugar. Mix in vanilla and spread over cake, sprinkling with cinnamon.
