Today I continue my FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT recipe series with an easy delicious Tres Leches Cake! You can use the boxed cake mix of your choice or make sponge cake from scratch, but the milk syrup I use is perfect for this cake and I hope you give it a try.

INGREDIENTS
1 boxed cake mix of your choice (I used Classic White)
1/3 cup (79 ml) vegetable oil
8 fluid oz (236 ml) water
4 large eggs

MILK SYRUP
12 fluid oz (355 ml) evaporated milk
12 fluid oz (355 ml) heavy cream
14 fluid oz (414 ml) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
orange peel (optional)
1 cinnamon stick (optional)

CAKE TOPPING
16 fluid oz (473 ml) heavy cream
2 TBSP confectioner’s sugar

Fresh fruit of your choice for garnish

-In a bowl combine boxed cake mix, oil, water, eggs and mix well
-In a 9×13 baking pan greased and lined with parchment paper, pour cake batter
-BAKE in a PREHEATED oven @ 325ºF for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean
-Cool cake completely

MILK SYRUP MIXTURE
-In a sauce pan add evaporated milk, heavy cream, orange peel and cinnamon stick
-Bring to a gentle simmer using a low to medium low heat
-Once milk simmers, remove from heat and allow to steep for 15 minutes
-Once mixture is cooled, discard orange peel and cinnamon stick
-Then add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract and mix well

SOAK THE CAKE
-Remove cake from pan and flip on to platter
-Be sure to level cake before putting on to platter

-Once cake is prepared, slowly pour milk syrup all over the cake
-cover in cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 to 5 hours, overnight for best results
-In a large bowl pour in heavy cream and beat until soft peak stage
