1) Put a rack in middle of oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
2) Use an apple cutter and slice each cut section into 3 slices lengthwise. Toss apples with lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cloves in a bowl. Heat 1 tablespoons butter in a 10" oven proof nonstick skillet over moderate heat or in a 8" by 8" baking dish in the microwave.
3) If using a skillet, heat skillet in oven for 5 minutes while combining milk, eggs, flour, maple syrup, oil, salt and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth.
4) Pour batter into hot skillet or 8"by 8" baking dish. Spoon apple mixture evenly over top. Bake pancake until golden and an inserted knife or skewer comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes to set.
