Make the Bread
Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and then flour the bottom and sides of a 6-cup (8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch or 9 x 5-inch) loaf pan, tapping out any excess flour.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg. Whisk until well blended.
Stir in the butterscotch chips.
In a medium bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. Add the pumpkin puree and orange zest. Whisk until blended. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients. Add the melted butter. Using a silicone spatula, gently fold until blended.
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle the sanding sugar evenly over the batter, and gently pat down so it adheres to the batter.
Bake, rotating halfway through, until the top is golden and a wooden skewer or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes.
Let cool in the pan on a rack for 30 minutes. Invert the bread and remove the pan, turn the bread right side up, and let cool completely.
Glaze the Bread
In a small bowl, stir the confectioners' sugar and the water, milk or cream until smooth, adding more liquid 1 tsp. at a time until the glaze is just pourable. Drizzle the glaze over the bread. Store, covered, at room temperature for up to 2 days.
Added extra orange zest and used roasted ground ginger instead of plain ground ginger. Had a good taste of orange and instead of flouring the pan, I sugared it after smearing the butter around. Did not use glaze.
