Tres Leches-Berry Parfaits
package 1-layer-size white cake mix
tablespoons dark rum, brandy, or water
tablespoon finely shredded lime peel
cup whipping cream
recipe Cinnamon Tres Leches Sauce
cup coconut, toasted (optional)
Fresh mint leaves (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x9x2-inch baking pan; line bottom with parchment paper or waxed paper. Grease paper; set aside.
- In a large bowl combine cake mix, eggs, butter, the water, and rum. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes (batter will be thick). Stir in lime peel. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes (cake may sink slightly during cooling). Loosen cake from sides of pan; invert onto wire rack. Cool completely (cake should be cool to the touch). Using a serrated knife, cut cake into 1-inch cubes.
- Divide one-third of cake cubes among eight individual dessert or parfait dishes and one-third of the chilled Cinnamon Tres Leches Sauce. Among the 8 dishes divide one-third of the berries. Repeat layers times. Cover and chill for 2 to 6 hours or until completely chilled.
- In a large bowl combine whipping cream, honey, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).
- Serve parfaits toppers with the whipped cream mixture. If desired, sprinkle with toasted coconut and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
