Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Generously butter a 10 inch cast iron skillet, or a 10 inch skillet or cake pan.
Core, peel, and halve the apples, then put them in a quart of water with the lemon juice added. Drain the apples, then microwave them on high for 4 or 5 minutes, until they are tender when pierced with a fork. Alternately, you can bake them for 15 to 20 minutes. How long depends on the variety and size. Allow to cool.
Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl, beat together the wet ingredients. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and stir until blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Arrange the apples in a circle in the batter, pushing them down into the batter gently. Fill the center of each apple with a spoonful of jam. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 35 minutes, or until the top is risen, golden, and the center tests done. This cake is excellent served warm. Cut into 6 servings, each serving containing an entire half apple.

When I opened my Mother's binder last night to check the recipe it fell apart I had to find a rubber band and tie around it to hold them all together! The pages fell every where! I'll have to find a new one now. I'm a sentimental old fool. I hate to get rid of it just because it was Mom's!
ANYWAY...here's the recipe:
