Set the oven to 375 degrees and butter the loaf pan.


In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly like coarse cornmeal. Set aside 1/2 cup of this mixture for topping.


To the bowl, add baking soda and power, cinnamon and nutmeg.


In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Slowly pour liquids into the flour mixture, do not over stir.


Pour into greased loaf pan and sprinkle with 1/2 cup topping.


Bake the cake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the loaf is clean when withdrawn. Cool bread in the pan for 15 minutes. Serve warm with butter and cups of black coffee.
