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!

I love this bread! The orange gives it a nice twist from the usual zucchini bread. The texture was very nice, and the blend of spices just right. I checked for doneness at one hour, and it was ready. Thanks for a great recipe, Lennie!

I just had a slice, slightly cooled and man oh man this is delicious. I am going to make and drizzle the glaze on later for the sugar-addicts in my family. Suggestion: mix the dry ingredients, including the grated orange rind, in a separate bowl; then combine them quickly with the "wet" bowl to get a lighter bread.

This is a pleasant twist to Zucchini Bread. The texture is great and the taste is delightful. The only thing I would do different is to add a little more orange rind to give it a fuller orange flavor. I didn't add the cloves as that is not a favorite spice for us.

Very simple to make,and delicious to eat. I changed the cloves to nutmeg because I prefer them and it was still good.

This is a great recipe. I enjoyed making it as much as eating it be- cause it made the kitchen smell so good. I made 8 loaves for the freezer!!! I can't say anything bad about it at all. Mary

Recipe is spot on. I left out the nuts but will try the next time with walnuts for some different texture. The bread is moist and keeps un-refrigerated with just plastic wrap for several days. The recipe makes two loaves - one to eat and one to give away. Perfect! Flavor is wonderful with the orange glaze. I used a small amount of orange zest in the glaze. Zucchini is so versatile and doesn't alter the flavor of the bread. Can taste the cinnamon and cloves (nice touch). I can't wait to add some other ingredients and experiment with this recipe. Thanks for sharing your delicious bread!

Moist bread. No real strong flavor of any sort, so not our favorite quick bread.

Like some others, I skipped the glaze (for travel purposes) and used OJ concentrate (2/3 c., as a replacement for the OJ) because that's all I had. It was delicious as a breakfast bread and the perfect thing to bring as a hostess gift--no one had to worry about cooking in the morning!
