Hi, I'm new to cake central, I am not a professional baker or anything but I do like to bake when I have free time. My mom absolutely loves Tres Leches cake, I've looked at a lot of recipes online but a lot of them taste too eggy at the end, and also too sweet (and that's ONLY the cake and the tres leches). So if anyone out there can help me with the recipe or tips I would be sooooooo grateful icon_smile.gif

Here's a Pastel De Tres Leches recipe. It uses a cake mix and is very easy and very good. I've made if for a customer and was told it tastes just like the cake his mother used to make when he was a kid. He's from Mexico, so, I really took that as a compliment (to the recipe).

1 Yellow Cake Mix
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
2 small cans evaporated milk
1 quart whipping cream (1/2 for milk mix, 1/2 to top cake)

Bake cake mix (as directed) in a 13x9 pan. Cool and cut in serving size pieces, but leave in the pan. Mix together milks & cream. Pour over the cake and allow the milk mixture to soak into the cake for a few hours. Just before serving, top with remaining whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon. Garnish with strawberries.

Does she like chocolate this one is really good. I like to make a vanilla mousse to top each slice out of two cups whipping cream and one small box instant vanilla pudding. Whip until peaks form. 1 (18.25 oz.) package Pillsbury® Devils Food Cake
1/2 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
1 1/4 cups water
3 large eggs
1 (14 oz.) can Magnolia® Sweetened Condensed Milk
3/4 cup half and half
3/4 cup Magnolia® Evaporated Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups frozen chocolate whipped topping, thawed
Chocolate decorator sprinkles
