Healthy Tres Leches Cake: Rich in Omega-3

My family loves cakes! While the kids will eat pretty much any kind of cake with sugary icing, my husband’s favorite is the Tres Leches Cake (cake with 3 milks). But here is the problem…most cakes are just sugar and empty calories. So I always look for ways to add some nutrition without sacrificing the taste. This Omega-3 rich cake that has cut down significantly on sugar will do the trick. So relax, sit back and enjoy!


-       1 pack store bought white cake mix (makes two 9x9 inch cakes)

Or see below for the ‘bake from scratch’ recipe

-       1 can of evaporated milk (12 oz)

-       ½ cup whole milk

-       ½ cup flax milk (if you cannot find flax milk, substitute with additional whole milk)

-       2 cups chopped strawberries or halved raspberries/blackberries

-       Whipped topping (optional)

-       2 tbsp flax seed powder

How To Make:

Bake the cake (or two 9x9 cakes) as per directions on the package or use the recipe below, just mix the flax seed powder in the batter. Once the cake is done, let it cool to room temperature. Poke many small holes in the cake with a tooth pick or with a paring knife. Pour the evaporated, whole and flax milk evenly on top of the cake. You will see that the cake will absorb all the milk within a few minutes. If desired, spread some whipped topping and refrigerate the cake at least for 3 to 4 hours before serving. Garnish each piece with fresh berries or fresh berry sauce right before serving.

Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven.
