Tres Leches Confetti Cake Recipe!

The weekend is here, the time to cook something sweet for your family. Our suggestion for this week is the famous “Tres Leches” Confetti Cake. This recipe consists of a spongy cake that is soaked in “tres leches” (“three milk”) sauce –a mixture of condensed milk, evaporated milk, and coconut milk– and features a whipped cream frosting. The combination of all those flavors brings about a sweet, spongy, and appetizing dessert for any time of day. Enjoy!

Aceite de oliva sabor suave /light flavor olive oil






  • 1+½ cups of flour.
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
  • ½ cup of mild olive oil.
  • 3/4 cup of sugar.
  • 5 organic eggs.
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract.
  • 2 tablespoons of grated coconut.
  • 1+1/2 cups of whole milk.
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of condensed milk.
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of whole coconut milk

For the whipped cream

  • 2 cups of cream.
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • 1 tablespoon of shredded coconut for decoration.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Next, gradually add the oil, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla extract.
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour and the baking powder. Gradually add this mixture to the one prepared previously. Beat the mixture on medium-low speed until everything is well blended and smooth. Add the grated coconut, mixing gently.
  4. Next, pour the cake batter into a rectangular cake pan and bake for a half hour or until the edges of the cake are golden brown and the center is cooked.
  5. Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool. When it is completely cool, poke holes in the surface with a fork.
  6. Mix the whole milk, the condensed milk, and the coconut milk in a large cup or measuring cup. Pour the mixture over the entire cake, spreading it evenly over all the surface. Let cool.
  7. Now it’s time to prepare the whipped cream: whip the two cups of cream and add the sugar and vanilla extract.
  8. Just before serving, spread the whipped cream on the cake and decorate with the shredded coconut.
