Strawberry Tres Leches Cakes

I made these individual Tres Leches Cakes using Sugar-free cake mix and they taste absolutely delicious!

I used this Premium Tres Leches Cake Recipe from


1 box of Yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 cup whole milk or evaporated milk
1 cup whipping cream 


  • Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Place Jars on a cookie sheet
  • In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. 
  • Fill 8oz jars 1/3 (100-ML mark on the jar) of the way. Bake between 35-45 minutes, check often after 35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Poke holes at the top of the cakes with a fork or butter knife.
  • In large bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk, whole milk and whipping cream. Carefully pour evenly over the tops of cakes. Cover; refrigerate about 1 hour or until mixture is absorbed into cake. 
  • Blend about 1/2 of strawberry's in a blender to make a puree and had some milk to thin out the puree.  Pour over the cakes. You may need to poke more holes. Cover and refrigerate for an hour. 
  • Top with cool whip or frosting of your choice.
Note: Amount of Strawberry's to blend may vary on how much puree you would like to add to your cakes. I would suggest starting with 1/2 cup and go from there.

For less calories opt for sugar-free items and low fat milk. 

These are perfect for birthday parties outside of the home or to take on the go for a little snack.


  1. I love Tres Leches Cake! Great now you have me wanting cake at 10 in the morning. :) I'll be keeping this recipe handy but I won't be using sugar free cake mix, too much fake stuff for me, but the rest of the recipe looks fabulous.

  2. These look amazing! How many cakes does this make?

    1. With 1 Box and filling to the 100-ML mark it made 9 or 10 cakes.
