Let's have Cake!

Tres Leches Cake
(made easy)
Mmm, Mmm, Mmmm! I love this yummy Latin American sweet treat, and although I've made it from scratch, and it's great, here is a simple and easy recipe that works wonderfully and is deeee-lish!
It's requested often by family members for their Birthdays here at the Kelly-Trevino household!

1 Cake mix (yellow or white)

1 can evaporated milk

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 can Nestle Mexican table Cream (Crema) if you can't find this you can use heavy cream instead

Make cake in 9 x 13" pan according to directions on the box.

Heat all 3 milks together in a sauce pan, and bring to a scald. Let cool.

Once cake and milks are cooled, poke holes throughout the cake w/ a fork.

Slowly pour or spoon the cooled milk mixture evenly over the cake.

Refrigerate for about an hour or so until all the milk is good and absorbed.

Frost cake w/ Real Whipped Cream and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

**I like to use real whipping cream, just very slightly sweetened as the cake is already sweet enough*



  1. oh boy, does that ever look and sound super yummy!

  2. Delicious. Have you tried a Smith Island Cake. It is the Maryland State official desert. It only has 10 to 12 layers.

  3. Thank you so much! This looks absolutely wonderful, and I've never seen anything else around quite like it. It looks easy too, so I am thrilled to get it; 'can't wait to make it for our next family get together! Jane
