Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Beat the butter and sugar and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla, orange peel and zucchini alternately with the dry ingredients; add the milk. Mix well. Add the nuts. Put into the prepared pan and bake for about 1 hour, or until done.
