Easy Tres Leche Cake

You can bake a boxed store bough yellow cake or make the following recipe. Honestly, I generally just do a store bought cake.

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup of softened butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 9x13-inch (or smaller) deep baking pan, set aside. Note: Cake doesn't really work in a standard round pan.

Beat together sugar and butter until it is light and fluffy and has a very light yellow color (about 3-4 min). Add the eggs one at a time mixing well after each egg. Add vanilla, baking powder, and flour and beat until a smooth batter is obtained. Pour batter into baking pan (batter will be the consistency of cookie dough). Bake for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool down to room temperature.

Poke holes all over cake using the end of a wooden spoon. Pour the following mixture over cake until it is all soaked up. You might have to pour only a portion of the mix at a time, let it refrigerate and then pour more.

1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
2 cups sweetened condensed milk

Before serving spread whipped cream over top and top with fresh slices of strawberry.

It really is better once it has had quite a while to sit in the refrigerator!
