  • 1 15.25 ounce package white cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup cold water
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • strawberries, optional



  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 10x15-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, water, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and mixed well. Pour batter into a prepared pan, smooth the top and bake for 22-24 minutes.
  • Let the cake cool for at least 30 minutes, then poke holes all over the cake with a bamboo skewer.
  • In a large bowl, combine evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and half and half. Slowly pour over the cake, making sure to get in all the holes.
  • Top cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • Before serving, make the whipped topping by whipping cream with sugar and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer or with a stand mixer. Mix until soft peaks form, then spoon and spread over the cake.
