Tres Leches Bundt Cake

A light sponge cake soaked in three types of milk, Tres Leches Bundt Cake combines the classic tres leches flavor with the beautiful look of a bundt cake. Top with fresh berries for a perfect summer treat, worthy of any celebration.

If you asked me what kind of cake is my favorite, the answer will hands down be bundt cakes. I love that they’re somehow fancy yet simple — so much easier to assemble than a layer cake, but just as celebratory and event-worthy.

If you asked me to choose a favorite flavor of cake, it might be a toss up between some sort of lemon cake and tres leches. I love the sweet vanilla flavor and custardy-like texture of tres leches cake.

While we usually find tres leches as a sheet cake (traditional tres leches cake recipe), I decided to try to combine my two big cake loves and make a tres leches bundt cake.

The end result? Absolutely delicious – no more work than a sheet cake, but the bundt cake shape makes it seem even fancier.

While tres leches cakes are always popular around Cinco de Mayo, I think this is a perfect cake to enjoy all summer long. Top with fresh berries and whipped cream, and I will gladly take a slice any day!
