These Tres Leches Baked Donuts are easy and quick to make; they’re soft, delicious, and moist, just like a
Tres Leches cake!

Hey, everyone! How are things going? I’ve come to realize that with all this remote work from home, I somehow now have less time for blogging. That’s bizarre considering the fact I should have more free time (e.x.: no commute, no gym). Yup, I still cook and photograph a lot, but it’s just not enough time for the actual blogging time. Please tell me that I am not alone! Long story short, let’s talk about these delightful Tres Leches Baked Donuts.

I do love some Tres Leches cake. Mostly, because I am not a huge fan of cakes that have thick layers and frosting; I love my cakes moist. Sorry for using this word. Very moist is preferable. So, around one month ago, I was considering to make some cake. However, firstly, I was lazy to make a cake, and secondly, it’s hard to photograph desserts like a Tres Leches cake or tiramisu, so I was hesitant.

Then I thought about a Tres Leches cake in a form of baked donuts. Technically, they are mini sponge (Not really) cakes. I wasn’t sure how the milk part would work – I thought they might fall apart while absorbing it. I must say they face this part perfectly and graciously!

Certainly, I could have glazed them with some rich frosting (Maybe whipped heavy cream or meringue), but they were decadent and sweet enough, so I skipped this part. Still, I wasn’t able to resist and use some dulce de leche for half of them. You know me. Nomnomnom :)

I hope you like these bad guys – Tres Leches Baked Donuts – and indulge yourself soon!

    Ooh I love tres leches and love that you’ve turned it into donuts. That dulce de leche finishing touch is super decadent too. Perfect comfort food. In answer to your first question, I’ve always felt that blogging time moves way quicker than normal time.

    It’s definitely a strange time for food blogging. For me, it’s limited grocery shopping and that I reallllly need a haircut, lol! (No videos please.)

    But these donuts! They look decadent delicious – love that they’re baked. And that shiny glaze looks heavenly!

    I love tres leches cake, so I imagine these luscious donuts would be perfect! And pre-portioned, that can’t hurt, right? And, you are so right, this is a difficult time. Time seems different, slower and faster all at the same time. I mean, what day is it? I’ve no idea. But these donuts – great idea!

    You are definitely not alone. I can’t really shoot any new content simply because I can’t find anything at the grocery store. It’s definitely a very weird time. Pretty sure I have everything to make these beauties though! You know I love baked donuts, and well, anything Tres Leches just makes me smile! Delicious work, my friend!

    I love the way you styled this donuts for the photos, Ben! I also happen to love tres leches as a flavor, so I know these donuts wouldn’t last long here. In fact, you should send me a batch so I can test that theory. And I totally know what you mean about having less time even though we’re stuck at home – for me, part of it is motivation to sit at the computer. I’m over it!
