Strawberry Tres Leches Cake (Glossies Made Me Do it!)

Welcome to the July edition of Glossies Made Me Do It, a monthly series I’m hosting with Erika of Cat Eyes & Skinny Jeans and Lauren of Shooting Stars Mag!

Glossies made me do it...!

Despite last month’s cookie taco fail, I returned to Rachael Ray every day because I couldn’t resist trying this Strawberry Tres Leches Cake. (Find the recipe here.) It looked like the perfect dessert to whip up for the 4th of July weekend.

Have you tried this Strawberry Tres Leches Cake from Rachael Ray every day? This cake starts with a boxed mix but is totally bakery worthy.

The recipe calls for a boxed cake mix, and I opted for a gluten-free funfetti mix from Pillsbury. The tres leches are heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk, which are poured on top of the baked cake.

While this is an easy cake to bake, it does require some pre-planning since the cake needs to be refrigerated for at least 4 hours before serving. One of my favorite parts of making this cake was poking holes in the top of the cake. It’s the perfect activity for a rage baker.

Topped with a mixture a mixture of milks and strawberries then smothered with whipped cream and sliced strawberries, this cake tastes like summer. My one complaint is that the cake was a little dry and the milk never sunk down into it. However, I think this is because a gluten free cake doesn’t absorb the same way a traditional flour cake does. Still, it was very good, and this is a recipe I will want to make again.

  1. So what’s interesting is tres leches is my favorite dessert. But there is a grocery store nearby that sells it with strawberries in it and I hate it, lol. I like the regular version and it needs to be super moist — all three milks! 🙂

  2. You may also want to try a different gf cake mix as different ones use different flours etc. It made me smile to see you punching holes in the cake. I’ve done that before and it feels so good.

  3. I’m a big fan of Tres Leches Cake but I’ve never tried to make it myself and I’ve Strawberry Tres Leches Cake. It looks scrumptious, the perfect summer treat.
