Preheat your oven to 180c gas mark 4 and lightly oil a rectangular loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and sugar. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the orange zest and juice, oil, and water. Add these wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir till they're just evenly combined (a few clumps are fine). Fold in pecan pieces. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf.
Bake the loaf for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and set. Allow it to cool for 15 minutes before removing the loaf from the pan and transferring it to a wire rack. Allow it to cool to room temperature before slicing and serving.
