Sure, here’s a delicious recipe for Strawberry Tres Leches Cake:


For the Cake:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Tres Leches Mixture:

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup whole milk

For the Topping:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fresh strawberries, sliced, for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and set it aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with 3/4 cup of the granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg yolk mixture, stirring until well combined.
  5. In another large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
  6. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter until just combined.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. While the cake is baking, prepare the tres leches mixture. In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and whole milk until well combined.
  9. Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  10. Using a fork or skewer, poke holes all over the surface of the cake.
  11. Slowly pour the tres leches mixture over the warm cake, allowing it to soak in. Cover the cake and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.
  12. Before serving, prepare the topping. In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  13. Spread the whipped cream over the chilled cake and garnish with sliced fresh strawberries.
  14. Serve slices of the cake cold and enjoy the creamy, strawberry-infused goodness!

This cake is perfect for any occasion, especially when you want to impress your guests with a delicious and unique dessert. Enjoy!
