Not Your Mama's Zucchini Bread

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Debbwl

As if the honey and orange zest weren’t enough to set this zucchini bread apart from most others it is topped off with a orange cream cheese glaze.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made this according to the recipe & thought it was great, but then, I was also quite generous with the orange zest in both the batter & the glaze (do love that stuff)! Another time, just to see what others are talking about, I might substitute sugar for half the honey, but will have to think about that, since we both enjoyed the bread as made this first time! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed just for the halibut!]
