I have a question about the recipe "Coconut Tres Leches" from aargersi. Hi! Please let me know what type of cake pan is best for this cake? I di not have a ceramic but do have a glass pyrex 9x13"- someone mentioned that cracked when she added the milks so I'm worried...thank you in advance!

Well, you don't have to pour the milks over when the cake is right out of the oven. Its a sponge cake, so it will soak up the liquid if its just warm. Its true that if you pour cool liquids over hot pyrex that you could have a cracking/exploding situation on your hands, so I would advise you to never do that. But, if the milks are room temperature/slightly warm (try microwaving them for a few bursts), and the cake isn't scalding hot, you should be fine with a pyrex dish.

When I made this cake I baked it exactly on a pyrex 9x13"pan and it came out fine. Just keep an eye on it, it might need less time in the oven. I think pyrex gets hotter than ceramic so mine was a tad over baked. Still delicious.
