Easy Pumpkin Spice Tres Leche

My favorite cake, yummy tres leche cake. Tres leche cake is made with sponge cake that gets soaked in a mixture of three milks; evaporated milk, condensed milk, and half and half.

I love pumpkin spice and that amazing smell my home gets when I make it. I decided to make this easy cake with  a vanilla box cake mix, but added cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Topped with whipped cream but also added 3 tbs of pumpkin purée for that extra flavorful taste, so rich and creamy with a dash of pumpkin spice powder.

This recipe it’s truly easy and I made it fun for Halloween, but you can also enjoy it on Thanksgiving Day!

Hope you love this flavorful pumpkin spice tres leche recipe!


1 box 15.25 oz Super Moist Vanilla Cake Mix

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp  allspice

2 cups pumpkin puree


1 can evaporated milk

1 sweetened condensed milk

3/4 cup half-and-half

Whipping cream

Store bought whipped cream

(Cool Whip Original Frozen Whipped Topping - 8oz)

3 tbs of pumpkin purée


Follow cake mix box instructions, mix cake add all the spices and bake on 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool for 15-20 minutes, and then turn it out on a serving plate so that it is upside down.

Use a fork or skewer to poke holes across the surface of the cake. In a bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and half and half. Pour it very slowly and gradually over the cake, allowing it to seep in. Cover and refrigerate the cake for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Combine the whipped cream and pumpkin purée. Spread evenly over the cake, and decorate with fun and scary Halloween candies.

Happy Spooky Halloween
