Orange zucchini bread (Cake de zapallitos con jugo de naranja)




I love used grated zucchini on cakes because are healthy and moist!
Try this zucchini bread infunsed with orange: really awesome.
And I love having a slice in the morning for breakfast.
I used 4 mini loafs for bake but you can change by 1 loaf pan.
