Anar Tres Le ches Cake

Anar Tres le ches cake

We all love the trending Tres le ches cakes, also Called the milk cake. This was a pure experiment that has been on my mind since a long time now. Ever since I have been seeing the famous Shabosphere's Classic Milk cake I wanted to try this makeover! No don't get terrified thinking of baking a cake. It is the easiest recipe and a piece of cake! Even if you don't have an oven you may do it over a stove top like how we do Kayi pola (click here to see instructions on how to prepare cake in a pan on stove top). 

A dessert with a Mexican origin, classic vanilla sponge cake (super fluffy and light) is soaked in three milks namely Evaporated milk, condensed milk and fresh milk. And finally finished off with a whipped cream layer that makes it creamier and adds to softness. And to give it a makeover I have tried incorporating Anar into this milk cake. Since Anar is known for how pretty, sweet and jewel like it looks I have always wanted  to try this combination. Though I did not achieve the desired color in the Tres le ches as the pome arils that I got were light in color. And the best ones with the best color is always of Indian Anar. Somehow this last time I could not get the good colored ones. I urge you to try with really nice red pome arils so that you can aquire the desired purple color. My 3 milk turned out be little dull than expected. But tasted delicious. If you love Anar milk - milkshake you are in for a treat!

To bring out the flavors of Anar I made a Compote using Anar juice and added pome arils to it. As anar (Pomegranate seeds) doesn't have a very strong flavor, it complements the cake very well. I love how you get little flavor Burts from the topping of pome arils while you enjoy the light and luscious cake. So I planned to make this Anar Tres le ches for Eid Al Adha. I am sure this Anar Milk Cake will be a show stopper!  Without further a do let's get started.
