i first had this cake at a restaurant in Houston several years ago and loved it - one day it sounded so good so i looked online for a recipe - baking from scratch is not my forte so i decided to cheat - it turned out great - i've been making it ever since with the Duncan Hines box mix - even put it in a charity auction and it sold for $25 - my friends and family love it and it couldn't be easier

How to Make Cheater's Tres Leches Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Bake cake according to package directions in a 13x9 pan. In medium bowl mix the three milks until well blended. While cake is still warm, poke holes in cake about 3/4 in apart using the end of a wooden spoon.
  2. Pour milk mixture over warm cake and cool to room temperature. Top with Cool Whip and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Not a cake you want to eat warm. The longer it sits in the refrigereator the better.
  3. Quick and easy and oh so yummy!

    p.s. even better when condensed milk is doubled
