Ingredients

Cake

1
box (1 lb 2.25 oz) yellow cake mix with pudding
1
cup water
1/3
cup vegetable oil
3
eggs

Sauce

1
cup whipping cream
1/3
cup rum or 1 teaspoon rum extract plus 1/3 cup water
1
can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1
can (12 oz) evaporated milk

Topping

1
cup whipping cream
1/3
cup coconut chips, toasted
1/3
cup chopped macadamia nuts

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed about 30 seconds or until blended. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter into baking dish. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix sauce ingredients. Using long-tined fork, pierce hot cake in baking dish every 1 to 2 inches. Slowly pour sauce mixture over cake. Refrigerate cake at least 3 hours to chill. (Cake will absorb most of sauce mixture.)
  3. 3 Before serving, in small bowl, beat 1 cup whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Spread over cold cake. Sprinkle with coconut and macadamia nuts. Cover and refrigerate any remaining cake.
