Banana Bread with a Nutella Swirl

28 Dec
If you have never tried Nutella shame on you!! For those of you that have had it you know how sinful it is and for those of you still in the dark…get out there and splurge on a jar of this chocolate hazelnut spread. Once you go Nutella you never go back. It is THAT good. 
I first had it when I was 13 and staying in Denmark. It was served with homemade croissants and danish. I brought a jar home to my mum but it didn’t last longer then a day. I don’t remember when I first saw it in the states but I am glad we caught up to the rest of the Nutella loving world. 
So bake yourself a loaf, sit back with a cup o’ joe and have a slice of heaven. Enjoy!!
Nutella Banana Bread


















  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

2.  In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3.  In a large mixing bowl, beat together banana, butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until combined, about 2 minutes.  Beat in eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated.  Reduce mixer to low speed, slowly add flour  mixture.  Stir just until combined.

4.  Place 1/3 of batter into a separate bowl.  In a small glass bowl, heat Nutella in microwave for about 15 seconds.  Remove from microwave and stir.  Place heated Nutella in bowl with 1/3 of the batter.  Stir together until combined.

5. Place 1/2 of banana batter in loaf pan, spread evenly.  Add layer of Nutella batter, add layer of banana batter.  Using a knife, gently swirl batter.  Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into bread comes out with a few crumbs.
