Pin it to save it for later! 
Eggless Strawberry Pastel de Tres Leches, I can't think of another way to describe this cake other than as Simple yet Sophisticated. We found each and every bite luscious and irresistible! It was rich, creamy, dreamy and a heavenly cake. Once you tuck into it, you never know when to stop because let me warn you it is dangerously delicious.


Pastel de Tres Leches, was the cake I wanted to bake and I waited more than almost five months patiently for another birthday in the family. If you've been a reader of this blog, you'll know that I'm not much of a baking person, especially baking cakes. I find them tricky and difficult and end results being sort of 'meh' when you are expecting to see one of those cake that you see on social media that are like a piece of art just splendid with wow factors that almost you can keep them as a show piece in your living room.


In baking, my trouble starts when I decide to bake cakes and cookies without eggs, once I overcome that factor, my biggest fear is to decorate the cake, I do not have artistic mind or hands. I get tired of running back and forth for the littlest things therefore I like to bake simplest cake as possible and not so complicated decorations.





The Tres de Leches cakes, is a Latin American Dessert, served on a special occasions like wedding and Christening, meaning 'Three Milks Cake' very moist cake soaked in three different types of milk and this cake is typically baked in a sheet pan.  The cake is an intriguing creation, it's managing to be both rich and light at the same time.


Eggless Strawberry Pastel de Tres Leches is my version,  It's egg free, and I decided and couldn't resist to transform it into a layered cake. I have baked sponge cake layers in three different baking tins without using Butter, and soaked them in luscious three milks mixture that made this cake rich and intense. This cake has layers of fresh strawberry and whipped cream filling between the layers and the whole cake is frosted with whipped cream and topped with whole strawberries.


Eggless Strawberry Pastel de Tres Leches cake is rich, creamy and dreamy. This heavenly cake is just mouthwatering and irresistible which won't last long on the table. This is pure indulgence!

Strawberry Pastel de Tres Leches worked out beautifully for me, No wonders as to why my cake platter was so clean that evening! Oh Boy, that was one incredibly satisfying piece of cake, the whole family seems to really love this cake too. It would make an excellent special occasion cake for Birthdays or any get-together. I hope you bake it and enjoy it too!
