For the Pancakes:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • One tablespoon of granulated sugar
  • One teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • One egg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Two tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Butter or cooking spray for greasing the skillet

For the Tres Leches Sauce:

  • One can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • One can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional, for extra flavor)

For Serving (Optional):

  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh berries
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Preheat your grill or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Grease the cooking surface with butter or cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg lightly, then add the milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Whisk until smooth and evenly combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir gently until combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps in the batter are okay.
  5. Ladle the pancake batter onto the preheated griddle, using about 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges start to look set, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Carefully flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook for 1-2 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter.
  7. While the pancakes are cooking, prepare the Tres Leches sauce. In a mixing bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, whole milk, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon (if using). Whisk until smooth and well blended.
  8. Once all the pancakes are cooked, stack them on serving plates and generously drizzle the Tres Leches sauce over the top. Allow the pancakes to soak up the sauce for a minute or two.
  9. Serve the Tres Leches Pancakes warm, garnished with whipped cream, fresh berries, and powdered sugar if desired.
  10. Enjoy the heavenly indulgence of these moist, flavorful pancakes that will leave your taste buds dancing with delight!
