Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray 8 or 9" round baking pan with cooking spray. (I like Bakers Joy for cakes -I don't recommend any larger pan as the cake will be too thin)
Sift flour, baking powder, salt, cloves, nutmeg & cinnamon in large bowl.
Using pastry cutter- cut butter into dry mixture until it resembles fine bread crumbs.
Add sugar & mix through.
Peel & slice apples into thin wedges & toss in flour mixture - coating apples.
In a separate small bowl - beat eggs & milk - add to apple mixture.
Toss & stir well to fully moisten flour. Should result in a very sticky dough.
Transfer to prepared pan.
Flatten top of surface & sprinkle with remaining sugar.
Bake 45-55 minutes or until toothpick test is clean.
Cool on wire rack.
