Ingredients

For the bread:

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup canola oil

For the glaze:

  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons 2% milk

Directions

Step 1 –Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Step 2 –Grease an 8×4-inch loaf pan.

Step 3 –In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and 1/3 cup of the milk.

Step 4 –Over low heat, cook and stir the mixture until the brown sugar is dissolved.

Step 5 –Transfer the saucepan from the heat.

Step 6 –In a large bowl, whisk the flour, the baking powder, the cinnamon, the nutmeg, and the cloves.

Step 7 –In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, the honey, the oil, and the brown sugar mixture until blended. Be careful; if the brown sugar mixture is too hot, it might scramble the eggs. Make sure it is cool enough (room temperature should be fine).
