Honey Spice Loaf
From "Chocolate and Zucchini" by Clotilde Dusoulier

2 tsp veg oil to grease the pan
1 1/2 cup milk
2/3 cup honey (grease the measuring cup first to help it out)
1/3 cup mild flavored dark molasses
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp each ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger
1/4 cup finely diced candied ginger or candied orange peel or a little bit of both (optional)

Preheat oven to 350f. Oil bottom and sides of 9x5in loaf pan and line bottom with parchment paper. Combine milk, honey, and molasses in small saucepan over medium heat. Heat without boiling stirring with spatula until all dissolved. Set aside and let cool.

In large bowl combine flours, baking soda and powder, salt and spices. In a small bowl combine ginger and/or orange peel with 2 tsp of flour mix and set aside.

Form a well in center of flour and pour in the milk slowly whisking in a circular motion starting from center until all the flour has been incorporated. The Batter will be thin. Fold in the ginger/orange. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 40-50min until browned and tester comes out clean. Cool on rack for 20 minutes. Run knife around sides and unmold. Cool completely, wrap in foil and let rest until next day
