Cake: Tres Leche "Three Milk"

Satruday I was grocery shopping at Walmart and I ran into this Tres Leche "Three Milk" cake mix from Duncan Hines.  I couldn't believe my eyes!! I was sooo excited to try it out.  Everyone I know LOVES tres leche and we always buy it at a local bakery.  I could not wait to get home to make it and let me tell you, it was just as delicious as the local bakery's.  I decided to share my first one with my mother in law.
Here's the box: all you'll need to add is water, eggs and whole milk, that's it!
Once you bake the cake, according to the box's instructions in a 13"by9" pan, you'll be asked to pour a measured amount of milk previously mixed with their enclosed powder.
It will look like this:

talk about moist!

Put it in the fridge for at least two hours.  I left it over night. When you bring it out of the fridge, it will look like this.  The cake should absorb the milk.

At this point, you can add whipped cream on top or decorate with fruit.  I decided to skip the whipped cream add some strawberries.  It was too moist for frosting so I didn't even try that.  I'll have to think of ways to decorate it, I like using fruit as decoration, but once you taste it, I don't think you'll care how it looks.

I'm definitely adding this cake mix to my pantry.  It will have it's own permanent spot so I'll never run out.  It's moist, it's sweet, it's creamy, it's delicious! and by the way, I took my mother in law her half and she loved it.

here's a link to their recipe:


  1. I seen that at Wally world to and have never heard of it. I will have to give it a try now it looks so good. I tried looking for those sopes yesterday and could not find them. Where do you get them and in what part of the store?

  2. This is my favorite cake in the whole wide world. The very first time I had it, I fell in love. I do not make it that often because I eat it all. Thanks you for sharing!
