    Cup White Sugar

  • 1

    Cup Brown Sugar

  • 3

    Eggs

  • 1

    tsp Vanilla

  • 1

    Cup Mayonnaise

  • 3

    Cups Flour

  • 11/4

    tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/2

    tsp Baking Soda

  • 1/2

    tsp Salt

  • 1

    14 Oz. Can Dulce de Leche

  • For the Frosting:

  • 1

    Stick Butter

    Cups Powdered Sugar

  • 1

    tsp Vanilla

  • 2

    Tbsp Milk

  • 3

    Tbsp Cocoa Powder

  • 4

    Oz. Coconut Flakes

Directions

To a bowl add the cocoa powder and chopped chocolate. Pour the boiling water in with the chocolate and stir it up until completely melted. In a separate bowl cream together the butter and both the sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and then stir in the mayonnaise. In a third bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Alternate adding and mixing the flour and the chocolate to the creamed mixture until all combined. Pour batter into 3 9" prepared cake pans and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. While the cakes are cooling, whip together the frosting ingredients; the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, cocoa, and 5 Tbsp of the dulce de leche*. Take the remaining dulce de leche and spread half of it over the first layer of cake. Spread half the coconut flakes over the top. Place the next layer of cake and repeat the dulce de leche and coconut. Place the final layer on top and frost with the prepared frosting. *To make your own dulce de leche, simmer a can of sweetened condensed milk completely covered in water for 31/2 hours. Remove from the water and allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before opening.
