First, preheat oven to 350F. Ensure rack is in middle position.
Next, rinse and cut zucchini (skin on and with seeds) into quarters and put in a food processor. Turn on for 30 seconds or so until zucchini is minced. You may use a cheese grater but, it will take much longer by hand.
Then, in a large bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, add sugar, oil, orange zest, orange juice and eggs. Add flour mixture one cup at a time mixing on low. Stir in minced fresh zucchini. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and make sure flour is incorporated evenly into batter.
Then, grease two loaf pans (8"x 4"x 3") with cooking spray. Pour half of the batter into each loaf pan and bake at 350F for 50-60 min. Test by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the loaf. If it comes out clean, it is done. Let rest for 30 min before cutting. Serve with a dab of butter if desired. Enjoy warm or cold. Store in the refrigerator for several days. Wrap in wax paper and put in freezer bag to freeze up to 6 months.
