Also, YOU NEED TO TRY SOME OF THESE!
1 - Tres Leches
The English translation to this dessert is "three milks." Hands down, this is one of my favorite Latin/Cuban dessert. It's the softest and tastiest cake your mouth will ever taste. It's made with condensed milk and evaporated milk. Don't believe how wonderful this cake is? Read my love letter to it.
2 - Flan
If you like cheesecake, you'll definitely like flan. They are sort of similar. Flan will usually have a caramel sauce that's added to the bottom and/or top of this dessert. Also, if you like chocolate, you should check out this Mexican chocolate flan recipe.
3 - Arroz con Leche
This is a rice pudding that's sooooo good! This is made with rice (of course), evaporated milk, and condensed milk. I know this I see this dessert often especially during the holidays!
4 - Buñuelos
I am sure many of you have heard of these! They are a bit different in Latin country or even region. In Cuba, they are golden-fried and made with yuca. Mmm, yuca! They are also served with a syrup.
5 - Pastelitos de Guayaba
These are flaky-type pastries filled with guava goodness. If you want to stare at pastelitos de guayaba food porn, you're in luck. There's a card about it. Oh, and they have cheese in them too! Enjoy.
