Tres Leches Cake

1-½ cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
½ cup Unsalted butter
2 cups White sugar (divided)
5 Eggs
1-½ teaspoon Vanilla extract (divided)
1 cup Milk
½ of a 14-ounce can Sweetened condensed milk
½ of a 12-ounce can Evaporated milk
1-½ cups Heavy (whipping) cream

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan. Sift flour and baking powder together and set aside. Cream the butter and 1 cup of the sugar together until fluffy. Add the eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of the vanilla. Beat well. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, 2 tablespoons at a time, mixing well until blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes.

When cake has finished baking, pierce it in 8 or 10 places with a fork or skewer, and let it cool. Combine the whole milk, evaporated milk, condensed milk and pour over the top of the cooled cake. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Whipped Cream Topping: When ready to serve, combine the whipping cream and the remaining 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 cup of sugar, whipping until thick. Spread over top of cake. Because of the milk in the cake, it is very important that you keep the cake refrigerated until ready to serve.

Serve chilled.


Upholstery Cleaner

ALWAYS make sure your sofa is washable before doing this. It should say on the label. If it has no label then do a test in an unseen area. Check after a couple of hours for streaking or bleeding.

You need TWO buckets.

In the first mix:

1/2 C ammonia
1/2 C cleaning solvent (I use Afta - http://tinyurl.com/27cero )
1/2 C Spic & Span
1/2 gallon lukewarm water

In the second mix:

1 C white vinegar
1 gallon lukewarm water.

Using an old towel scrub upholstery with cleaning solvent solution, then rinse with another towel dipped in vinegar and water. Use a third towel to wipe as dry as possible.

Before you do this remove the cushion covers if they are removable. Wash them with warm water on a gentle cycle. Add 1/4 C vinegar to the rinse water to brighten the fabric. Put cushion covers back on WHILE THEY ARE STILL WET. Zip them up and pat them into shape. Let them dry standing on end against the couch. Stains can be removed as with other laundry stains.

Appliance Cleaner

2 T nonsudsy ammonia
1 t liquid dish soap
1 pint rubbing alcohol
1 gallon water

I add everything but the water to a gallon milk jug then fill it the rest of the way with water. I pour it into spray bottles and clean EVERYTHING with this stuff. It is a fabulous degreaser so is wonderful on the stove, etc. Enjoy! :)
