Heavenly Nutella Banana Bread

Raise your hand if you love bananas, raise your other hand if you love Nutella (Hazelnut cream), now raise your two hands and one foot if you love bananas and Nutella together. Nutella and bananas go together just as dreamy as bananas and peanut butter, drool! One of our favorite snacks, lunches or even breakfast is a freshly made crepe with Nutella and banana slices (Even our scruffy terrier, Panchito, loves a few bites, what can I say this dog has good tastes.) The other day I was daydreaming of Nutella and banana crepes but it was 9 at night and much to late to make a batch of crepes. When I get a craving I’m like a child, I gotta get my fix straight away. So I made a bread instead.

This was one of the best breads/cakes/loafs I have ever made! It was so light, moist, spongy, chocolatie and oh so satisfying. My husband didn’t know what I was up to in the kitchen and when I brought him a slice he was happily surprised. He also really liked it and kept saying how good it tasted. In our house I’m the one that eats more desserts and sweets so to see him enjoy it this much was a good sign. Totally worth washing dishes at that time of day. You will notice that there is very little sugar, I find Nutella and bananas to be sweet enough on their own and didn’t want to have an over sweetened bread. I hope you too enjoy the recipe as much as we did.

Banana Chocolate; Cake; Ingredients; Baking; Banana Bread; Nutella; Hazelnut cream; chocolate cream; banana cake; flour; baking powder; baking soda; bananas; sugar; brown sugar; organic; milk; vegetable oil; sunflower oil; canola oil; egg; brown egg

Wet Ingredients:
2 small ripe bananas = 1/2 cup or 150 grams mashed
1 medium egg
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Bourbon Vanilla or 1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. brown sugar (organic)
2 heaping tbsp. Nutella or any Hazelnut cream
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1/2 cup whole milk

Dry Ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

1. Preheat the oven to 200C or 392F, line a loaf mold with baking paper or butter and dust with flour then set aside. In a large bowl sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.

2. In a separate large bowl mash the bananas or add the mashed bananas. Beat the egg into the bananas for 2 minutes ( to build some air). Next add the salt, vanilla, brown sugar and oil into the bowl. Stir until well combined, then add the Nutella and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated. Pour the whole milk into the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.

3. Using a spatula fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until all ingredients are well combined. But do not over stir as this will create gluten and the bread will not rise. Pour batter into baking/loaf mold.

4. Place in center of oven and bake for 35 minutes or until baked through. Test the bread by inserting either a toothpick or butter knife into the center and if baked through it will come out dry. If there is batter on the toothpick/knife the bread needs to bake longer. Allow to cool before serving.

You can also serve with butter, or toast a slice then butter it. Delish!
See the large air pockets that formed all over the bread, making it very light and airy.

    @Lisa, Hehe:) There are going to be all lot of falls today:)

    @Patty, Yay your also on our cool team:) You're going to have to go bake some now then, listen to that craving:)

    Nancy! I've missed you :)
    I raise my hand! I love bananas and nutella. This bread looks delicious! I'm probably better off not making it though, I'd end up eating the whole thing.

  3. says

    I don't think I've actually ever tried bananas and nutella together. I just usually eat it straight from a jar with a spoon! But since I love bananas and PB, I can imagine how good this would be. And together in a bread? Heck yeah!

  4. says

    Yummy! I can't wait to try. I made a similar recipe where I marbled the nutella into the banana bread but it didn't have as much of a punch

  5. says

    What a gorgeous loaf of bread! I wish I could devour it but sadly I'm allergic to bananas. But I definitely will be making this for my dad, he will LOVE it. Thank you so much for the recipe. And thanks for listing my recipe, so sweet of you :)

  6. Matt S says

    looks amazing! I'm wondering, how far in advance do you think you could make this without it going stale?

  7. says

    I love all of your comments, so sweet and funny :) Glad to see there is a whole world of Nutella Banana lovers.

    @Matt S., You could try storing it in the refrigerator to extend the shelf life. Then warm it up or toast it when you are ready to eat it.

    sorry if I'm mistyping, it's getting hard to write with the toes since you asked us to raise two hands and one foot if you love nuttela and bananas.
    I love banana bread and adding nuttela to it makes it heavenly.
    Thanks for sharing Nancy, hope you'll have a wonderful weekend

    Hey Nancy! This bread does sound like it would be so good! The combination of Nutella and bananas just sounds natural. I mean, what could go wrong with chocolate, nuts, and banana? Yummerz!
    p.s. Sorry about not submitting to the Round Up this month. As you may know, I've been dealing with some issues (smile but seriously). I'll be sure to submit next time-for sure;-)

    I raised both hands and one foot, now I raise the other foot too because I want some!!! :o)) I love Nutella, this banana bread sounds heavenly!
    Thanks for visiting my blog! I really appreciate it!
    Looking forward to your event!

    I was very excited to combine nutella and banana bread, but when I tried this recipe, my bread came out a little dry…not quite as soft and moist as my banana bread usually does. I'm not sure what I did wrong!

  12. says

    @Tastemonials, Glad you liked it!

    @HCON, Perhaps the recipe you usually make calls for more oil or butter. I use a very small amount of oil but this is to my liking. I suggest you try adjusting the oil or even milk, or you could also make your usual recipe and just add the Nutella. Hope you enjoy it:)
