    In a bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients, including the orange rind, and set aside
  3. Now, in a large bowl, beat the eggs until it becomes light-colored, add the sugar bit by bit while beating it, and then add oil, orange juice, and zucchini and mix well.

  5. In the prepared bread pans, pour the batter, half of it in each pan.
  6. Place the pans in the oven and let them bake for 40 to 50 minutes. To make sure it is cooked through by inserting a wooden stick in the middle, it comes out clean, which means it is ready. Let it cool for around 10 minutes before removing it from the pans.
  7. Let them cool a little further while you prepare the glazing by mixing all the ingredients in a small bowl, if you wish, you can add a bit of orange zest too.
  8. While the loaves are still warm, spread the glaze over it then let it cool on a wire rack before serving.

HOW DO YOU KEEP ZUCCHINI BREAD FROM GETTING SOGGY?

To prevent the Zucchini Orange Bread from getting soggy, you must measure the ingredients according to the recipe; sometimes, when we feel confident, we tend to change a few things believing that it won’t affect the results, with this recipe, I can guarantee that if you measure everything well, it will be perfect.

Also, make sure to let it cook well in the oven, if you remove it too early, it will be soggy too.
