Tres Leches Pancakes are a decadent breakfast treat that combines fluffy pancakes with the rich, sweet flavors of the famous Tres Leches cake. It’s a perfect recipe for a special brunch or a luxurious weekend breakfast.


For the Pancakes:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Tres Leches Mixture:

  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

For Serving:

  • Whipped cream
  • Ground cinnamon for dusting
  • Sliced strawberries or other fresh fruit (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, beat the milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease with butter or cooking spray.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges look set, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream to make the Tres Leches mixture.
  7. Once the pancakes are cooked, stack them on a plate. Generously pour the Tres Leches mixture over the pancakes while they are still warm, allowing it to soak in.
  8. Top the pancakes with whipped cream and a dusting of ground cinnamon. Add sliced strawberries or other fresh fruit if desired.
  9. Serve the Tres Leches Pancakes immediately and enjoy!
