Orange zucchini loaf

This spring I was given the biggest zucchini that I’ve ever seen in my life. It came straight out from my uncle’s garden and he passed it to me to make zucchini bread. I’ve already made 4 zucchini bread and only used about 1/3 of the zucchini.

Since I had so much zucchini and time in my hands, I’ve tried out four different recipes to see which one tasted the best. The first one was with greek yoghurt, the second with orange juice, the third with coconut milk and the last one with coffee (which turned out really yucky). In the end, the second option tasted the best so I’m going to share that recipe with you today!
