Prep Time 1 hour 40 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes


  • 1 15.25 oz box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 stick butter {melted}
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Milk Mixture

  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 16 oz. can evaporated milk


  • 1 tub whipped topping
  • 1 cup fresh fruit


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray and set aside.

  2. Combine cake ingredients and mix with a hand held mixer {or by hand}. Mix until all of the ingredients are nicely combined {about 2 minutes}. Pour into the prepared 9x13 pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake is cooked through. You can tell it is finished when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes.

  3. While the cake is cooling combine the milk mixture and whisk. Once the cake has cooled poke holes in the top of the cake with a tooth pick or skewer. Poke the holes about about an inch apart all over the top of the cake. Then pour the milk mixture evenly over the top of the cake. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, preferably longer.

  4. Once the cake has refrigerated for at least an hour, top with whipped topping and fresh berries. Serve or refrigerate for up to 4 days.
