Nutella Banana Bread


While you can never go wrong with standard issue banana bread (it’s like love in bread form. amiright?), when I stumbled upon this recipe for nutella banana bread my heart skipped a beat. Those are like, three of the best things that ever existed (nutella + banana + bread = one happy me (and a happy Justin too)).

One evening, right before bed, I decided I just had to whip this thing together. It was non-negotiable. The recipe was incredibly easy to follow, and apart from the fact that it took an hour and a half to bake (rather than the hour it had called for), it was well worth the wait and made for the perfect midnight snack.

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  3. 1/2 tsp. salt
  4. 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  5. 1 cup granulated sugar
  6. 2 large eggs
  7. 1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana
  8. 1/3 cup skim milk
  9. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  10. 3/4 heaping cup Nutella
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8" x 4" loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda & salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together sugar and butter with mixer at medium speed until blended. Add eggs, beating well after each egg.
  4. Add banana, milk and vanilla and blend.
  5. Slowly add flour mixture (I did it in three parts), mixing in between until incorporated (but don't overmix!)
  6. Warm nutella in oven or microwave until softened. Add 1 cup of the banana bread mixture and stir until combined.
  7. Alternate spooning banana bread mixture and nutella batter into the loaf pan.
  8. Using a knife, swirl together the two mixtures.
  9. Bake for 1 hour - it should be a tiny bit undercooked as it will continue to cook in the pan.
  10. Let cool for 15 minutes and then transfer to wire rack.

  6. […] it immediately brought back many fond, albeit sugar-induced, memories. And (as seen with this nutella banana bread combo) I’m always down to test out a recipe that combines two of my all time favourite treats. […]
