Ube Strawberry Tres Leches Cake Recipe

March 22, 2023 By: Bunnie's Kitchen

Ube Strawberry Tres Leches cake recipe is the perfect dessert for Spring! Tres Leches means "three milks". Ube is a nutty, vanilla purple yam that originated in the Phillippines. It has a mellow sweet taste. Beautiful hues of purple from the ube and pink from the strawberry jello, make this cake a fantastic spin to regular Tres Leches. If you don't have time to make the topping from scratch, can substitute cool whip with the strawberry jello or mashed strawberries. First time creating this original recipe from my own kitchen. Hope you will enjoy it!
