Tres Leches Cupcake in a Jar


I must admit, it has been a while since my last dessert post. A bit discouraged by a series of bad baking projects, I have been hesitant to embark on another one so soon. Yet when I saw this Tres Leches recipe on Pintrest, it sound so delish I had to throw caution to the wind.  Don't laugh at me now, but just locating the three milks, at the supermarket, was slightly daunting for me. I mean, it has been only recently that I have had the courage to attempt to make anything from scratch and staying true to form, for this recipe, I of course went through nine eggs, when only three eggs were required. (Let just say, separating egg whites from egg yolks is not my forte.) Nevertheless despite the slight set-backs, I was pleasantly surprised when these moist cupcakes came out baked to perfection, in my Weck jars. Lastly, craving a little more zing, instead of frosting the cupcakes like the original recipe, I complemented the sweet treat with a dollop of locally grown, strawberry goodness.
