Simple Tres Leches Cake

posted in: food | 0

While in Louisville this past week, my friend made a delicious cake.  My husband requested that I make it when we got home.  I took it to your small group since I had the meal this past week.  So delicious!

1 box yellow cake mix (13×9 pan size)

1 straw

1 can evaporated milk – 12 oz

1 can sweetened condensed milk – regular size can

1 can cream of coconut 15 oz

1 pint heavy whipping cream

3-5 T of sugar

lime zest for top of cake

coconut (optional)

Bake cake according to directions (I needed eggs, butter, and water for mine).  Let cool.  Poke holes in the top of the cake with the straw.  Mix together the three milks.  Pour over the top of the cake.  Set in fridge to get cold.  Mix the whipping cream until the consistency of whipped topping forms.  Add in the sugar.  Then spread this yummy cream over the cake.  Set in the fridge for a few hours before serving.

You can add additional lime or coconut to this cake and/or decorate the top of it with shaved coconut or lime zest curls if you would like.
