  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat Cake ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 26 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove cake from oven to cooling rack. Immediately poke holes using fork over top of cake, wiping fork tines occasionally with paper towel to reduce sticking.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, stir together Filling ingredients until blended. Evenly pour over cake, working back and forth to fill holes. Refrigerate uncovered 2 hours or until chilled (when cutting pieces to serve, you may notice some of the liquid in bottom of pan).
  • 5
    In chilled medium bowl, beat Topping ingredients with electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Frost top of chilled cake with whipped cream. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg on top. Cut into 5 rows by 3 rows. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Ready-made eggnog is typically available during the holiday months—replace 1 cup heavy whipping cream in the Filling with 1 cup eggnog for even more eggnog flavor, if desired!
  • Heavy whipping cream helps make this cake delicious! 2 1/2 cups are needed, so be sure to buy 2 pints heavy whipping cream when shopping for this recipe.
  • Tres Leches Cake is a classic Nicaraguan cake soaked with three forms of leches, or “milks.” It is a very moist cake and becomes more flavorful as it's stored.
