Tres Leches Cake
My daughter needed a cake to bring to a school dinner.
She asked me to make this.
I will kvell forever because she is graduating from medical school.
I got carried away putting the fruit on the top but you arrange the fruit any way you want.
One 9 by 13 baking pan
One Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
One can of sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
One can of evaporated milk (12 ounces)
One cup whole milk
One pint whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar or a little more but don’t make the cream too sweet because the cake is sweet.
One teaspoon vanilla
2 pounds blueberries
One large box of strawberries
Make the cake according to the box directions
Take the cake out of the oven
While the cake is still warm poke holes in the cake with the back of a wooden spoon.
Do not poke all the way to the bottom of the cake
Mix the condensed milk, evaporated milk and whole milk together.
Pour slowly into the holes of the cake and keep on pouring till all the liquid is finished.
Its fine if it spills onto the entire cake because the milk is going to get absorbed into the cake.
Let the cake cool, cover it and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
Whip the cream, vanilla and powdered sugar till soft peaks form.
Take all the whipped cream and put it on top of the cake.
Add the fruit
You can use whatever fruit you like but make sure it is washed and dried well.
I love raspberries and blackberries.
Cover again and keep refrigerated.
Cut into 2 by 2 pieces because it is very rich.
My children love it.
