Nutella Banana Bread Recipe

Pin It
We buy a lot of Bananas at my house.  I like mine a little on the green side and when they get too ripe I just don't like to eat them anymore.  When they start getting a little freckly I typically turn them into Banana bread.  I saw this recipe for Nutella Banana bread and knew I had to try it.  My sister hates Nutella and anything that is delicious and hazlenutty.  I on the other hand love Nutella.  I think it is so much fun and turns regular toast into a special treat.  This bread turned out really well..but the Nutella flavor didn't show up like I had hoped it would.  Maybe more Nutella next time.

You will need Salt, Vanilla, Nutella, Flour (I used a mixture of Whole Wheat and White), very ripe Bananas, Eggs, Baking Soda, Butter, Sugar and Milk.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a loaf pan by covering it in Butter or shortening and then sprinkling flour all over it.

Mix together the Flours, Baking Soda, & Salt.

In a separate bowl add the softened Butter in with the Sugar.

Beat until it is all combined.
Add the Eggs in one at a time.

Beat into the Sugar/Butter mixture after adding each one.

Add in the Milk, Vanilla, and Mashed Banana and beat together well.

Add the Flour mixture and mix together until just incorporated.  Don't over mix.

Put the Nutella in a microwave safe dish and nuke for about 15 seconds..just to soften it a little.
Put about 1 Cup of the Banana mixture in separate bowl.

Add in the Nutella.

Mix it together thoroughly.

Add the batter to the bread pan alternating regular and Nutella.
It started out so pretty and went crazy by the end.

Using a butter knife swirl the batters together to make a nice decoration.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Look how pretty the top is.  Cool for at least 15 minutes in the pan.

Then let cool on a wire rack.  Try to let it cool a bit before eating.

I just couldn't wait!  Piping hot with a bit of butter.  Enjoy!

2 C Four (I used half Whole Wheat and half White)
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 C softened Butter
1 C Sugar
2 Large Eggs
2 very ripe Bananas, mashed
1/3 C Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 C Nutella (I will try using more next time to up the Nutella flavor)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare a loaf pan by greasing and flouring it. 

In a large bowl mix together the Flour, Baking Soda, and Salt.

In a separate bowl beat together the Sugar and Butter with an electric mixer.  Then add the Eggs in one at a time.  Make sure to beat them in well after you add in each Egg.  Add in the Banana, Milk, and Vanilla and beat together well.

Now add in the Flour mixture and beat until just incorporated.  You don't want to over mix.

Put the Nutella in a microwave safe dish and give it a 15 second zap to soften it up.  Add 1 cup of the Banana batter into a bowl and mix it with the Nutella.  Alternately spoon Nutella batter and regular batter into the bread pan until it is all used.  Use a butter knife to create a swirling pattern in the pan.

Bake 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 15 minutes in the pan then turn out on a cooling rack to cool fully.

Enjoy! Pin It
