Making Tres Leches cake is easy, and it doesn't require any complicated baking techniques. Here's how to make a delicious Tres Leches cake that your family and friends will love:


For the cake:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
5 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
For the milk mixture:

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
1 cup heavy cream
For the topping:

2 cups whipped cream
Fresh strawberries or other fruits

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan.

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Stir in the vanilla extract.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

While the cake is baking, make the milk mixture. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream.

Once the cake is done, let it cool for 10 minutes.

Using a fork or a skewer, poke holes all over the surface of the cake.

Slowly pour the milk mixture over the cake, making sure to get it into all the holes.

Cover the cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

When you're ready to serve the cake, spread whipped cream over the top of the cake and decorate with fresh fruit.

Serve cold and enjoy!
