cinco leches cake

are words necessary?

for the cake:
1 yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup veg. oil
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla

preheat oven to 350'.  mix everything together until well-blended and bake in a 13x9" pan 30-34 minutes.  remove from oven and cool 30 minutes.  poke holes all over the cake with a fork or the end of a wooden spoon.  bigger holes means the milk sauce will absorb better.

for the milk sauce:
1 cup heavy cream or half and half
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 (15 oz.) can cream of coconut (coco lopez brand)
1/4 cup dark rum
t tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

pour over the cooled cake with a ladle.  wait. until your first few ladles-full have absorbed to add the rest.

whipped cream:

1-2 cups heavy whipping cream (depending on how thick you want this layer)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp dark rum, or more to taste

whip together until to whipped-cream consistency and spread over cake.

refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
