I like this one but there's no fruit:
TRES LECHES
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
12 oz can evaporated milk
1 cup heavy cream

Topping:
3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat the eggs until foamy. Gradually add the sugar. Add the flour mixed with baking powder.\, the milk & vanilla. Pour into an ungreased 13x9" pan. Bake 20-25 minutes. Cool the cake & then poke holes with a fork all over the cake. Mix the condensed milk, evaporated milk & cream. Pour the mixture slowly over the cake until absorbed.
To make the topping, beat the egg whites, sugar & vanilla until foamy. Spread over the cake. Refrigerate until serving time.~~ Celebrate Miami

I've wanted to try Tres Leches cake but was told by two women of Mexican descent that it is VERY, VERY sweet, which they said in a tone that suggested it's TOO sweet to them. Has anyone tried it that concurs with that?

The one I make is sweet but I don't think it's tooooo sweet but if you don't like very sweet desserts it's probably not for you.
