A couple days ago I blogged about a homemade Tres Leche Cake. It was a delicious recipe from America’s Test Kitchen. However, there are times I don’t have time to make a cake from scratch, and to be honest I can never get the texture quite as light and airy as I would like. I will have to keep working on mastering the perfect homemade cake. Until then, I decided to try a simplified version of a Tres Leche Cake and my family loved it! The flavor was still just as moist and rich, but the cake was much lighter and not as dense. If you are wanting a simple way to make a delicious Tres Leche Cake, give this recipe a try. Enjoy 🙂

Instructions
  1. Mix the cake ingredients together and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes, or until center of cake comes out clean with a toothpick. Set cake aside for a few minutes to cool and then poke with a fork or skewer all over cake, about one inch apart.
  2. While cake is cooking, combine together the sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, evaporated milk and vanilla in a bowl. Mix until smooth. Pour this milk mixture over the cooked cake. You can poke wholes in the cake with a fork to allow the milk to sink into the cake. Keep the cake in the fridge until ready to serve. When ready to serve, whip the one cup of whipping cream into stiff peaks. Add powdered sugar and spread over the cold cake. When ready to serve, spread whipped cream over the cake.Serve with fresh berries and/or berry sauce.
