The Best Tres Leches Cakes in Toronto

The best tres leches cakes in Toronto are sweet, creamy, satisfying desserts everyone should try. Made of delicate sponge cake soaked in a vanilla-scented mixture of evaporated and condensed milks mixed with heavy cream, this cake is one of Latin American's most popular exports.

Though Toronto is home to a few unique takes on tradition -- with flavours like matcha, piña colada and coffee tres leches -- most of these sweets pay tribute to the way the dessert has always been made. A homey classic, tres leches cake may not be the city's most photogenic dinner finale. Still, with a taste that has garnered generations of devotees, there's plenty of reason to seek out the city's best tres leches cakes.
