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
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1 cup whipping cream
1 recipe homemade whipped cream, found here
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.
