Preparation time: 30 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour | Serves: 12


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Fresh fruit for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Gently fold in the flour mixture until well combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold them into the batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. While the cake is baking, combine the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream in a bowl.
  8. Once the cake is done, poke holes all over the top with a fork. Pour the milk mixture over the cake, making sure to cover it completely.
  9. Refrigerate the cake for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the milk mixture to soak in.
  10. Before serving, whip the heavy cream with the powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over the cake and garnish with fresh fruit, if desired.
  11. Enjoy your delicious Tres Leches Cake!
