Premium Tres Leches Cake

Premium Tres Leches Cake

Here’s our Cinco de Mayo dessert which was outstanding!  I have another Tres Leches cake on the blog that is made from scratch so I wanted to try one made with a cake mix to compare and this is by far the winner, everyone liked this one better, it was moister and fluffier and tastier.  It’s a Betty Crocker recipe and was also very easy to make.

1 box yellow cake mix

1 1/4 cups water

1 tablespoon oil

2 teaspoons vanilla

4 eggs

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk

1 cup whipping cream

1 recipe homemade whipped cream, found here

sliced strawberries

1  Heat oven to 350.  Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Beat cake mix, water, oil, vanilla and eggs on low for 30 seconds then on medium for 2 minutes.  Pour into pan.

3  Bake as directed on box for 9 x 13″ pan.  Let stand 5 minutes.  Poke top of hot cake with long twined fork all over surface of cake, wiping fork as needed.

4  Stir together sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and whipping cream then pour over top of cake.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until mixture is absorbed into cake.  Top with whipped cream and strawberries.

  1. I love cake mixes. They really have perfected them, so I don’t know why one would take all the time and effort to bake from scratch when it comes to cakes and cookies. I will definitely try this recipe! Thanks!!
