I prefer my recipe much more...but this one was still good the only difference is I put 1/4 cup spiced rum in the milk mix and 2 tablespoons of rum in the frosting ... It gives it so much more flavor...and I use a fork to poke holes all over the cake about an inch apart and pour the milk mixture on top..it should sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving

I was confused on this, was I suppose to buy a white cake mix and add the next 7 ingredients to the cake mix

So yummy! Every time I make it, everyone wants the recipe. I always make it as a layer cake....so I whip up extra cream for the middle, I've made it both as a 10 inch round and a 9x13 rectangle.

EXCELLENT! DELICIOUS! I have tried several other recipes for this cake and his is by far the BEST I've tried! I wanted to yield a thick and deep cake and this recipe which uses a cake mix PLUS flour provides those results. I also used a deep dish square cake pan. One adaptation: I separated the eggs! First mixed the cake mix, flour, oil and baking powder together. Beating egg yolks with 3/4 cup of the sugar to a pale yellow. Combine in the milk and vanilla and gently fold into the flour/cake mixture. Then whipped the egg whites with remaining sugar to soft peaks formed. Again, very gently fold egg whites into cake mix. Baked for 50 minutes until golden brown.

By far the most delicious tres leches cake I've ever made! Very moist and sweet but not to sweet also the sweetness of the vanilla is just the right amount. I would definitely recommend to add two fillings because, with one the cake I felt was too dry and a true tres leches is nice and juicy.

This is my first time ever trying or making tres leches cake and this recipe was incredible! Fairly simple to make & my hubby, kids, mom & myself loved it. I have to stop my self from eating the whole thing as I opened the fridge looking for lunch yesterday & had a piece for lunch as well as a piece for breakfast again! Delicious & I def will be making again. Next time I will try it with fresh strawberries & possibly canned peaches.

This is the BEST Tres Leches recipe out there. Great as it is -- even better if you double the milk mixture (I used most of it ... maybe having 1/4 of the doubled amount left). The trick? Make it the day before. My Mexican son-in-law says it's amazing -- and the BEST tres leches cake he's ever had. He said it's like his favorite at the Dallas Chuy's restaurant "but even better." Because it's "more traditional tasting" we use a big container of Cool Whip to frost it (rather than the real whipped cream). Now, EVERYONE in our family wants this as their birthday cake. Everyone who loves Tres Leches cake will ask you for your recipe. I promise! Note: I am skeptical of many recipes having wasted a ton of groceries on recipes found on the internet. This is not one of those recipes. Try it and enjoy!
