Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease and line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving about a 2-inch overhang on the longer sides for easy unmolding.
In a small pot, bring orange juice to a simmer. Remove from heat and add the pitted dates, orange zest, and vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, salt, and cloves until thoroughly blended.
In the orange-date mixture, add in the Redpath® Golden Yellow Sugar, Redpath® Granulated Sugar, melted butter, and beaten egg. Whisk until well mixed.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the well. With a rubber spatula, quickly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until no flour streaks remain; do not overmix. Some lumps are fine.
Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Place into the preheated oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes until loaf is golden in colour, and a toothpick inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.
Remove from oven and allow loaf to cool slightly in pan; about 10 minutes. Run a small offset spatula around the loaf. With the help of the parchment paper, carefully unmold loaf and place onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Serve this loaf with Brown Sugar Coffee Glaze.
The loaf can be kept in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap and kept at room temperature for up to a week, or frozen for up to a month.
