I am Mexican, so I know what a good tres leches cake should taste like. I must say this recipe hit the right spot. I made it for a family reunion and everyone absolutely loved it. I garnished it with fresh strawberries and coconut flakes. DELICIOUS.

Firstly, it's not a recipe for a 9 X13 pan. There just wasn't enough batter. I'm a professional baker and the mix did not rise much. I would not make it again, although with a couple of changes I think it may have potential.

I made this cake today. It turned out delicious! It was easy to make & I will definitely do this one again. I'm from Tamaulipas, Mexico. My entire family enjoyed the taste of this one. I used a 10" round pan. The cake batter was enough and rose perfectly in this pan. This recipe is a definite keeper. Thanks!

The best "Tres Leches" I've ever had!The only recipe I use! Makes two 8" rounds or one 10" round or one 9x13 pan. It never fails me! Tip: use room temperature eggs.

I loved this recipe. The 9x13 pan worked great - batter was enough for good distribution and the cake rose perfectly. Easy to make and delicious.

This cake was very easy to make and was a huge hit at dinner last night! I will make this again and share with my friends! I did not have any issues with it not rising or filling out a 9x13 cake pan. The batter did seem minimal when I poured it, but it rose just fine and with the whipped topping it came right to the top of the pan. Perfect!

I gave this recipe two stars because it's not a consistent recipe. The first time I made it, it turned out wonderful! Perfect! The next time, it flopped. It did not rise. I discovered my baking powder was bad. I bought new baking powder, tried the cake again, and it flopped again. It did not rise again. I would like to know what happened. One other reviewer had a problem with the cake not rising, but most reviewers had great results. If any one knows what the problem is, please tell me.
