In a mixing bowl, add eggs, water, milk, oil and mix everything until smooth.
Add cake mix powder and mix until just combined. There might be some lumps but don't worry about them and don't over-mix!
Pour about 3/4 of the batter batter in a greased and floured rectangle cake pan (Dimension: 9x13).
In another mixing bowl, add apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and mix until apples are fully coated.
Spread these apples on top of the cake batter.
Pour the remaining cake batter on top. It won't fully cover the apples and that's perfectly fine.
In another bowl, make the topping by mixing together together the flour, coconut, brown sugar, butter with a fork until you have a crumbly mixture.
Sprinkle this topping over the apples and cake batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Let it cool down completely.
While the cake is cooling prepare the sugar glaze by whisking together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract until it's smooth and perfect for drizzling. If you want the drizzle thinner, add more milk. If you want it thicker, add more powdered sugar.
Drizzle the glaze on top of the cake and enjoy.
