Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray four 8.5x4.5-inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Stir in the sugar until well incorporated. Stir in the carrots.
In another large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, lemon zest, baking soda, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Whisk to blend.
Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and fold to combine.
Divide the batter into the prepared pans and bake for about 1 hour or until a tested comes out with a few crumbs attached. Cool loaves on a wire rack.
In a small bowl, place the powdered sugar. Add enough milk to form a thin glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled loaves.
To freeze: Wrap the cooled loaves, unglazed, with plastic wrap and place them in ziptop freezer bags. Store in the freezer for up to 6 weeks.
