In the bowl of a stand mixer add the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, & salt. Whisk them together on low speed, until evenly combined.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter, & vanilla until smooth. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and treat with non stick spray or butter. While the skillet is heating, whisk the wet ingredients into the dry, JUST until mixed. Don't over mix, small lumps are normal. Fold in the apple.
Scoop a 1/4 cup of batter on the skillet for each pancake, Cook until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip the pancake, and cook until the underside is golden brown too. Repeat until all the pancakes have been cooked.
