Ingredients:  
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
cup fresh orange juice
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of ground cloves
pinch of ground nutmeg
2 cups shredded carrots
1 cup shredded zucchini
1 cup diced, peeled apple (Granny Smith, Fuji, whatever you have on hand)
cup pecans, chopped (You can use walnuts if you prefer)

Cream Cheese Glaze/Frosting

cup cream cheese, softened
cup butter, softened
2 - 3 cups powdered sugar
1-3 tbsp orange juice as needed

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 8x4 inch loaf pans. Line with parchment paper and set aside. (I use the baking spray with flour in it.)
Place zucchini in a large kitchen towel. Bring up the four corners and twist. Squeeze the towel to extract all the liquid from the zucchini, or as much as you can. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg together. Set aside.In a separate large bowl, whisk together the butter and sugar. Add eggs, orange juice, and vanilla and whisk until combined.
Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients along with the shredded carrots, shredded zucchini, apples, and pecans. Pour into prepared pans. Bake until golden brown, 55 to 60 minutes, or until loaves spring back when gently pressed with fingers. Let cool completely before icing.

Cream Cheese Glaze/Frosting
Cream together cream cheese and butter with a hand mixer. Add in 2 cups of powdered sugar and continue mixing. Drizzle in orange juice until desired consistency is achieved. Frost bread. This bread freezes really well. Just freeze without the frosting, and frost after you defrosted it.

Personal Notes:
I happened upon this recipe, and when zucchini is in full harvest, this is a great switch from traditional zucchini bread.
