Fresh Apple Cake

Fresh Apple Cake
Dan's Great Aunt Winnie makes this cake for us every year. She has given me permission to share this great recipe. It's worth the work! Dan really looks forward to it and I am pretty sure this is the ONLY recipe Dan eats with coconut - so if you're not a fan of coconut (Dan isn't), don't skip the recipe. Give it a try first.
