Tres Leches Cake Recipe

We love creating unique treats for our guests at our bed and breakfast in Hershey, PA. They start the day with a full gourmet breakfast. Then, after a busy day exploring Hersheypark, antiquing, visiting wineries, and enjoying museums, they return to an array of desserts. It’s time to sit by the pond and waterfall, watch horses graze at sunset and savor something extraordinary.


This lovely Tres Leche Cake is one of our most requested recipes. We have shared it on Pinterest. It’s easy, authentic and divine. We hope your family enjoys this little taste of Westwynd… and that your travels will someday bring you to the farm and our Hershey Bed and Breakfast, where we can spoil you in person.
