Delicious Banana Tres Leches Dessert


  • 1 box White Cake Mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (2 medium)
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 1/2 cup (from 14-oz can) coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 container Betty Crocker™ Whipped Fluffy White Frosting
  • Banana slices and/or toasted coconut, if desired


Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 13×9-inch pan.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs and mashed bananas with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.

Bake 33 to 38 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Poke top of cake every 1/2 inch with long-tined fork, wiping fork occasionally to reduce sticking. In large bowl, stir together condensed milk, coconut milk and whipping cream. Carefully pour evenly over top of cake. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight until mixture is absorbed into cake.

Spread frosting over cake. Garnish each serving with banana slices and/or toasted coconut. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.


Sprinkle your favorite toasted nuts over the top of the cake
