Easy Cake Recipe by Cindy Flores Martinez

Have you ever tried Tres Leches Cake? It’s one of my favorite cakes, and I have an easy recipe to share.

In my latest Christmas story, Mia’s Gift, which is part of the Small-Town Christmas Wishes Series, my heroine Mia owns a cupcake shop with her best friend Diane. In a scene, Mia talks about having baked Tres Leches Cupcakes as a child.

Tres Leches means “three milks”, and there are many cake recipes that start from scratch, but my easy recipe makes a light and yet flavorful cake that’s just as delicious.

Easy Tres Leches Cake

1 box yellow cake mix (and the ingredients to bake the cake)

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 container whipped topping


Bake the cake according to the instructions on the box in a rectangular pan. Let it cool.

Poke holes all over the top of the cake with a large fork.

In a bowl, mix the three milks together and spoon the mixture over the cake letting it soak through. Some recipes say to use the whole mixture, but I use only half.

Refrigerate for a half hour and spread whipped topping over the top.

Optional: garnish with strawberries or other fruit and/or cinnamon
