Face it, many of us are coming out of this quarantine earning fresh and comfy extra poundage like a hibernating grizzly. Folks are either cooking up a storm like Gordon Ramsay in The Matrix (didn’t happen, but if it did good lord Mr. Smith you’re in for a sumptuous feast) or hitting up food delivery on the regular, so trust my theory holds weight. You know what else does? The Horchata Cake and Tres Leches Cake from La Monarca Bakery & Cafe.
With 12 locations throughout the greater Los Angeles area, La Monarca has Angelenos covered when it comes to sweet Mexican treats and unique coffee offerings. And what could be a sweeter form of indulgence than a Horchata Cake and Tres Leches Cake?
Their Tres Leches (translates to ‘three milks’) Cake is a Mexican classic: vanilla sponge cake with house made tres leches milk blend, topped with vanilla bean chantilly cream (fresh whipped cream w/sugar) and a dark chocolate ganache swirl, topped with preserved cherry.
Now for the Horchata Cake, they basically used the same principle of a Tres Leches Cake and soaked it with their house made horchata. It’s a novel and simple premise that executes perfectly, with each morsel of the cake being the very definition of moist. Each bite practically had my tastebuds splashing through the whole experience like it was the first day of summer at the community pool. It’s no wonder that La Monarca’s Horchata Cake is a best seller, with one Yelp user gushing, “It tastes like Mexican heaven.”
Now imagine pairing these cakes up with La Monarca’s signature cafe drinks like their Oatchata Latte or Tres Leches Latte and you’ve got yourself an ideal situation for any fan of irresistible cake and delicious coffee.
