This Orange Zucchini Bread with Orange Glaze is one of a whole slew of zucchini recipes coming up shortly! Zucchini is one of my new favorite ingredients. It’s like the pumpkin of spring and summer.
This Orange Zucchini Bread with Orange Glaze is almost like a pound cake or loaf cake! Very cake-like, but if we call it bread, we can eat more of it. Because it has green veggies in it, we can eat it guilt-free!
It’s immensely moist, sticky sweet, dense, but with soft crumbs, and BURSTING with fresh orange! It’s such a jolt of sunshine in this never-ending winter.
