Tress Leches is my all-time favorite Mexican desert. “Tres Leches” in English means “three milks” and it’s basically a cake soaked in three different types of milk; whole milk, sweet condensed milk and evaporated milk. I made these the other day and oh MY GOSH .. they are to die for! SO light and fresh! If you have any questions let me know.. this is my own recipe so enjoy!
For the Cupcakes you will need:
– Box of White Cake Mix
-1 tbs of ground Cinnamon
– 4 Egg Whites
-1/3cup of oil
– 1 & 1/4 cup of Water
-Foil Cup Liners
– Cupcake pan
-1 cup of whole milk
-1 cup of evaporated milk
-1 cup of sweet condensed milk
Dulce De Leche Whipped Topping
– 1 Half Pint of Heavy Whipping Cream
– 2 tablespoons of Cajeta (dulce de leche) Can be found on (Mexican/foreign isle)
– 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
– 1 tsp of vanilla extract
Garnish Ideas: Strawberry, Sprinkles, Berries,
Directions: Mix the cake mix, cinnamon along with the other ingredients (eggs,oil,water). Bake as directed in box on a cupcake pan w/foil cupcake liners. Let cupcakes to completely cool.
On a large bowl, add the three milks and stir until well mixed. Using a toothpick poke the cupcakes to make holes then carefully add the three milks w/a spoon.
Tip: Open the cupcake liners from the cupcake so the milk won’t slide over the cupcake when pouring the three milks. To completely soak the cupcakes; Use about five-six spoonfuls of three milks. and let them soak and refrigerate from 1hr or overnight.
To prepare topping:
Using a blender or whisk mix whipping cream for about 2 minutes on high-speed or until it double its size. Add sugar, vanilla and cajeta and mix well until it forms stiff peaks. Add topping on a piping bag and decorate cupcakes.
Makes about 12-24 cupcakes. Keep cupcakes refrigerated and sealed.
Hope you enjoy. These were my best cupcakes yet. My little family loved them so MUCH!!
