    Based on NatalieInTX's comments I DOUBLED the milk mixture and the cake was...not dry, but not soaked as this cake should be. The recipe makes a delicious cake but you've got to up the tres leches quantity. This recipe is unusual in that the third milk is IN the cake and not poured over it.

    For a Tres Leches cake this IS on the dry side - Here in TX slices are served swimming in extra leche. This did make a very moist cake but I still poured more sweetend condensed milk on each slice before serving to make it like I'm used to. AND I added cinnamon to the batter and the whipped cream (I don't use the pre-made stuff) to make it more 'correct'.

    This was incredible. So dense, so moist, so easy. Served it at a dinner party and had to email everyone the recipe the next day. Whoever commented that it was extremely dry did not make it correctly. It is a family favorite now.

    Gorgeous! A very moist, rich sponge cake. Made it for my fiances birthday last week and it became a quick favourite for him and his family! Will definitely make again.

    Very disappointed with this recipe. It was extremely dry! Definitely not the moist, creamy tres leches cake I've had before.

    Delicious! Made another Tres Leches recipe with disastrous results for the cake. This was easy and came together beautifully. I added one can of (well-stirred) unsweetened coconut milk to the milk mixture (had to do two 'pourings' to soak the cake). To answer one of the above questions: leave in the fridge until you're ready to serve. Thanks!

    I was making this cake for my son's birthday and my version of the recipe did not include the eggs. I counted how many Chef Lala added from the video ! Now I see that there is another recipe with 4 eggs listed ! Nice cake. I left the cake in the fridge till it was time to serve. Good Luck !

    I'm making this for my son's birthday. Should I leave it in the refrigerator until it's time to serve, or should I take it out after the hour?
