Very good! Been years but I will make soon! Prep time is estimated for soaking and icing prep!

This is really a winner. The cake is wonderfully moist. I made it exactly as written. It's not a typical apple cake with cinnamon and spice. Rather, it's the perfect compliment to the delicious icing - a buttery coconut/pecan icing. YUMM! The guys went back for seconds. I'll be making this again.
