Food Storage Tres Leches Cake

I usually don't like Tres Leches Cake because it's not chocolate, but this food storage cake was sooo good!  We ate it at RS with strawberries and cream.  Loved it!  The recipe and picture are from Everyday Food

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Pam or grease a 9 X 13 cake pan

Blend in blender: (put water in first)
1-1/2 Cup water
1/2 Cup + 1 T Dry Powdered Milk

In a mixer:
1 box yellow cake mix, dry
1/3 Cup oil
3 large eggs
1 Cup of the milk mixture from above and reserve the rest in the Refrigerator.
Beat the cake mix, oil, eggs, and 1 Cup milk mixture for 2 minutes on med. speed in the mixer.
Pour into prepared cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
COOL in the pan before continuing.

In Blender:
1/2 Cup hot water
1-2 T butter
1 Cup Dry Powdered Milk
1 Cup Sugar

Blend VERY WELL in blender add reserved milk mixture above & blend briefly again.
Using a dinner fork, poke holes all over the cake. Pour the milk mixture evenly over the cake.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until liquid is absorbed.  Over night is best!

Serve with whipped topping
Garnish with Sliced Almonds or Toasted Coconut
Store left overs in the Refrigerator
