Fresh Berry Pastel De Tres Leches

I have always been intimidated by pastel de tres leches. It is my cake of choice for every birthday I celebrate and happens to be one of my favorites. I like it topped with fresh fruit best. I decided to gift it to America for it Independence Day celebration.

Ingredients for Pastel De Tres Leches:

  • a box of cake mix (white or yellow) (bake according to instructions- time, temp, and ingredients)
  • 3/4 – cup of fresh blueberries
  • circle cookie cutter (optional)
  • 1/2 – cup half and half
  • 1 – cup milk
  • 6 – ounces of sweetened condensed milk
  • cool whip
  • fresh strawberries cut into star shapes and blueberries for the top of cake

Directions:

  1. Mix cake batter per instructions on the package, then add in blueberries. Pour batter into a 9×13 baking pan lined with wax paper. Allow to come to room temperature. Then place in the fridge over night.
  2. Poke cake all over with fork to allow liquid to soak into cake.
  3. In a bowl add half and half, milk, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix to combine.
  4. Then gently pour all the liquid over the entire cake or cut the cake with a circle cookie cutter to make individual circles.
  5. Frost top of cake with cool whip and then decorate with star shaped strawberries and blueberries.
  6. Enjoy!
