Banana Nutella Bread

I love Nutella. I can eat it straight out of the jar and sometimes the only reason I resist making a cake with it is because the batter is so amazingly delicious that I end up eating so much of it not to mention eating Nutella right out of the jar. Enough said about that, I decided to bake a loaf with my over ripe bananas and Nutella. The only thing I didn’t add was nuts and I think they would be good in this so feel free to add some chopped nuts into the batter ( about 1/4 – 1/2 cup ) would be sufficient. Don’t over bake, baking time is an hour. I think I removed at about 55 minutes. So be sure to check with a cake tester in the center at about 50 minutes.

Staples:

eggs, baking powder, flour, baking soda, salt, 3 ripe bananas, unsalted butter, light brown sugar, vanilla extract and a 9 inch loaf pan

Shopping List:

Nutella and Chopped Nuts ( any kind you like)

 

Ingredients:

2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 bananas , very ripe is best, mashed

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs , room temperature please

1/2 cup Nutella

*1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch loaf pan and set aside. I used Bakers Joy Spray which I love for baking.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in one bowl. Set aside.

In mixing bowl of electric mixer ( you can use a hand mixer as well) beat together the softened butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in the bananas and then add in eggs one at a time and vanilla until well combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined , don’t overmix.

Divide 1/2 of the batter into loaf pan and spoon Nutella on top and swirl with a knife gently, then add the other 1/2 of the batter and swirl again. This is how you will distribute the Nutella.

Bake for one hour or until a cake tester comes out with some moist crumbs attached. Let cool before removing from loaf pan.

Slice and enjoy!
