Three Easy Semi-Homemade Cakes For Every Occasion

Tomorrow is my birthday and I thought what a better way to celebrate it by sharing my three easy semi-homemade cake recipes with you all. I always keep cake mix in my pantry for days that I’m craving for cake or when a neighbor reminds me that it's their birthday. Or when your mommy friend calls you for an impromptu wine play date. If you need a dessert for a special occasion, or are just looking for an excuse to make an awesome treat, these cakes deliver on both fronts. 

Enjoy!

Tres Leches Cake

Prepare your cake mix. In a saucepan mix 1 can of condensed milk, and 2 cups of any milk you like (I used almond and coconut milk) over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Remove cake from oven and allow it to cool slightly. Cut into squares maintaining it in the cake pan. Pour milk mixture over top of cake. Make sure to refrigerate if you are preparing it ahead.

Vanilla Cake With Mango

Prepare cake mix. Cut mango into thin slices. Pour half of the batter in to the baking pan. Add mangos on top then pour the rest of the batter on top. When it's done pair it with any topping you like. This cake is perfect for those who don't like frosting on their cake. Note: I got this recipe from my friend Christina who always make this cake for her daughter's birthday.
