Tres Leches Cake


Perfect for summer parties!


  • 18.25 oz. box yellow cake mix
  • 1 c. water
  • 3/4 c. Daisy® Light Sour Cream, divided usage
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 c. heavy whipping cream, divided usage
  • 2 Tbsp. confectioner's sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon


Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray, dust lightly with flour; tap out extra flour; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, water, 1/2 c. light sour cream, vegetable oil and eggs on low speed for 3 seconds. Increase the speed to medium high; continue beating, scraping the bowl often, for an additional 2 minutes.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the cake form the oven. Using a fork, poke holes over the entire cake.

In a 4 cup measuring cup, using a wire whisk, stir together the sweetened condensed milk, 1 c. heavy whipping cream and 1/4 c. light sour cream. 

Slowly pour the milk mixture over the cake in the pan. Cover the cake and refrigerate for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the mixture is absorbed into the cake. Remove the cake from the refrigerator.

In a medium bowl, beat the remaining 1 c. whipping cream until soft peaks for (1 to 2 minutes). Slowly add the confectioners' sugar to the whipped cream. Continue beating, scraping the bowl often, until stiff peaks form (an additional 1 to 2 minutes). 

Frost the top of the cake with the whipped cream mixture. Sprinkle the cake lightly with the cinnamon. Refrigerate the leftovers.
