Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9×5 inch loaf pan with spray or butter.
Add butter and brown sugar to a large bowl. Use an electric hand mixer or standing mixer to cream together butter and brown sugar until well combined, about 4-5 minutes.
Add molasses, eggs and vanilla to sugar and butter mixture and beat until well combined.
Sift together all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt.
Slowly add the dry ingredients and buttermilk to the wet ingredients and beat on the lowest speed until completely combined.
Using a rubber spatula to scrape the bowl, pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Spread evenly and sprinkle turbinado sugar on top.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
