Measure flour, baking soda and salt into another bowl. Slowly add to wet mixture stirring just to combine.  Fold in orange zest and toasted nuts. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in the middle of the oven for one hour rotating the pan once, halfway through the baking time.  The loaf is ready when a skewer inserted in the tallest part of the loaf comes out clean.
