Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and cloves in a medium bowl. Set aside
Toss apples with lemon juice in a separate medium bowl. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Melt butter in a 9 or 10" oven proof skillet. Add coffee and egg to flour mixture, mixing well.
Pour batter over melted butter; do not mix. Stir apple mixture and arrange over batter. Bake in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes or until apples are tender and cake is puffed and set. Let stand 20 minutes. Cake will sink slightly. Serve warm. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
