Tres Leches Bundt Cake

I got pressured again today.

I just learned that the Bar Exams for this year has been set for October instead of November which means that i just lost a whole month to review. ;( Me, being the me that I am, instead of acting productively and reading at a faster pace, i ran to the kitchen to bake. 
It was very timely that when i checked my Instagrm, my friend posted a picture of a cake she just made. (Thank you to my friend Pepi for sharing her tres leches recipe)

anyhow here it is:

Tres Leches Cake
recipe adapted from Jaypee Plata

For the cake

only fill the pan three quarters up this is too much hehe

6 eggs, separated
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c sugar
1/2 c melted butter
1 c all purpose flour

1. in a mixer with whisk attachment beat egg whites with salt and baking soda until soft peaks.
2. add in the egg yolks and sugar and beat for 30 seconds (resist the urge to over beat)
3. add melted butter (make sure that it has cooled)
4. divide flour and fold it in (by hand) in 3-4 batches
5. bake for 20-30 mins at 350F or until a cake tester comes out clean at the thickest part of the cake

For the Tres Leches 
1/2 c cream
3/4 c evaporated milk
3/4 c condensed milk

To assemble
While still hot poke holes all over the cake (poke as many times as you can)
spoon in tres leches mixture over the cake and allow the cake to absorb it
and then chill for at least an hour before serving (chill it well)
