Tres Leches Capirotada is the combination of bread pudding and moist cake, mildly sweet, with a delectable taste in every bite. When eaten warm, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yummy!

How to Make Tres Leches Capirotada

In a medium bowl, place melted butter, bread cubes and toss together. Place on a baking sheet in a preheated oven of 350°F.  Bake 12-15 minutes till crispy.

  • Mix all 3 kinds of milk into a medium pot, bring to boil over medium heat. 
  • Add cinnamon and brown sugar to milk mixture and lower heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes. 
  • Remove from heat. 
  • Layer baked bread cubes, almonds, coconut, raisins, banana, cheese(optional), and half of the milk mixture, repeat. 
  • Bake for 25 minutes.

This dessert is easy to make, with most ingredients available in your kitchen. I buy day-old Bolillos or French bread on sale at the grocery store, usually for under $1.  When I have apples, pears, or bananas looking a little too ripe, I slice them up and add to the layers.
