A variation on zucchini bread.

Top Review by PalatablePastime

This was an awesome recipe! I did double the nuts and chose pecans; they were delicious in the bread. For the glaze I put a small amount on top and left the rest in a tub so people could dab as much as they liked on their piece (I don't like as much, but my daughter likes a LOT!) I'm suprised this bread stayed around long enough to cool completely. It's that good! It has a mild orange flavor and you don't really notice the zucchini as a vegetable- it just adds to the moistness. Excellent recipe! Thanks, Lennie!
