Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 1 ½-quart (or 9-inch square) baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Spread bread cubes on a baking sheet and toast lightly in the oven until dry and crusty (but not browned) – about 5 minutes.
While the bread is in the oven, prepare the liquid ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
Place bread cubes in the prepared dish. Pour egg mixture over bread cubes. Sprinkle top with brown sugar.
Bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the top is light golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm, topping with ice cream, whipped cream, or caramel sauce.
