It's almost Fall-time for Spice Bread

I love the spices we associate with fall-cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cardamon and cloves. This awesome bread recipe should be doubled. It gets gobbled up so quickly, leaves you wishing for more!
You can add the glaze if you like. Sometimes I do, but mostly I leave all that sugar off. Here's the recipe I'd like to share with you. Dropping in on a friendly neighbor with one of these loaves always gets you "welcomed back."

12 Servings Prep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup 2% milk
2 cups all-purpose flour (I use freshly ground soft white wheat flour)
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 eggs
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons 2% milk
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar
and milk. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved.
Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and
cloves. In another bowl, whisk eggs, honey, oil and brown sugar
mixture until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until
Transfer to a greased 8x4-in. loaf pan. Bake 55-60 minutes or until a
toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (cover top loosely with
foil if needed to prevent overbrowning).
Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool
completely. In a small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth;
drizzle over bread. Yield: 1 loaf (12 slices).
Freeze option: Securely wrap and freeze cooled loaf in plastic wrap
and foil. To use, thaw at room temperature. Glaze as directed.

 Let me know if you're baking this bread. Put on some coffee, I'll be over!

 Weather has cooled off here. Some more warm days predicted. I don't know what it is but I love to grab my camera and save the colors present and the ones changing. Welcome fall!
