  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Brummel and brown
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Zest from one orange
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons flour


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Brummel and Brown
  • 4 tablespoons fresh orange juice


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl, cream together sugar, Brummel and Brown and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add egg and orange zest and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk together.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet.
  • Wrap grated zucchini in a paper towel and gently squeeze. Don’t over squeeze, you only want to remove about 2-3 tablespoons of liquid.
  • Transfer to batter along with walnuts and mix together.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together sugar, cream cheese, egg and flour.
  • In a bread pan lined with parchment paper, pour half of the bread batter, then pour the cream cheese on top and smooth. Add the remaining bread batter and smooth.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. If the bread starts to brown too much on top, add foil to keep from browning too much.
