One of my good friends brought this to a party and I had to have the recipe once I devoured my piece. I’m that person who tastes something and has to find out who made it and ask if I can have a copy of the recipe. She had gotten it from a sweet lady she worked with and was happy to share it with me. It certainly has some different ingredients (especially the cup of Coke!) but don’t leave it out. I think the cake turns out perfect just the way it is. Its super easy to make and I guarantee that someone will ask you for the recipe!
We love to serve it with fresh strawberries, but the raspberries were on sale today and they are also delicious with it. This would be the perfect way to end your Cinco de Mayo celebrations!
Tres Leches Cake Recipe
For the cake:
2 cups pancake mix (like Bisquick etc.)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup Coca-Cola
1 cup vegetable oil
5 large eggs
Mix together all the ingredients (batter will be thin and may have a few lumps). Pour into greased 9X13 pan and bake at 325 for 25-35 minutes, until just golden. Poke holes with a fork while warm.
For the milk part:
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can Nestle media crema
*Pour over warm cake & refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight. Refrigerate leftover milk to pour on before serving. Serve with fruit of your choice, such as sliced strawberries.
*Note- in the past when I made this cake I would use this method of pouring the milk over the cake and refrigerating overnight. Now I like to mix the milk and refrigerate it and the cake separately and pour on individual slices right before serving. It is great both ways.
