Strawberry Crunch Tres Leches Cake Recipe


  • 1 box strawberry cake mix (plus ingredients listed on the box)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (for cake)
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream (for whipped cream)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 18 golden Oreos
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 (3 oz) packet strawberry jello mix


1. Bake the Strawberry Cake:

  • Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the cake mix box.
  • Prepare the strawberry cake mix according to the instructions on the box.
  • Once baked, let the cake cool for about 10 minutes.

2. Prepare Tres Leches Mixture:

  • In a bowl, mix together 1 cup of heavy cream, evaporated milk, and sweetened condensed milk.
  • After the cake has cooled for 10 minutes, use a fork or skewer to poke holes all over the top of the cake.
  • Pour the tres leches mixture over the cake, ensuring it seeps into the holes. Allow the cake to absorb the mixture.

3. Whipped Cream Topping:

  • In a separate bowl, whip up 1 cup of heavy cream until it starts to thicken.
  • Add sugar and vanilla extract, then continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread the whipped cream over the tres leches soaked cake, creating an even layer.

4. Prepare Crunch Topping:

  • Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Finely crush 18 golden Oreos and mix half of the melted butter into the crushed Oreos.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the strawberry jello mix with the remaining melted butter.
  • Mix the Oreo mixture with the strawberry jello mixture until well combined.

5. Assemble and Refrigerate:

  • Crumble the combined Oreo and jello mixture evenly over the whipped cream layer on the cake.
  • Refrigerate the cake overnight to allow the flavors to meld and the cake to set.

6. Serve:

  • Slice and serve chilled. Enjoy the delightful combination of strawberry crunch and tres leches goodness!
