Banana Bread batter is mixed together with tons of rich Nutella then baked until moist and delicious.
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 1 loaf
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, browned (see notes below)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup nutella
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan; set aside.
  2. First, brown the butter - simply melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. It will start to sizzle. Once it sizzles, stir constantly until until you see brown flecks in the butter and smell a nutty aroma. Remove pan and stir constantly for an additional minute; set aside to cool. The butter will have a deep caramel color. Careful not to burn the butter!
  3. Mash the bananas in a large bowl then add sugar, eggs, vanilla and the cooled butter.
  4. Next, mix together flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and stir into the wet ingredient mixture just until combined.
  5. Pour about ⅓ of the batter into the prepared pan then dollop about ⅓ of the Nutella on top and swirl with a knife. Repeat this step - ⅓ of batter and little more Nutella then swirl. Finish off with the last of the banana bread batter then top with the rest of the Nutella and swirl. Bake for 30 minutes, turn the pan in the oven and tent with aluminum foil to prevent the top from burning. Bake an additional 40 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a knife into the center. It will come out with Nutella on it but you shouldn't see any wet banana bread batter. If you do, put back in the oven for another 5 minutes with the aluminum foil still tented on top and check again until done. Let cool completely before removing from pan. The outsides may be browned, that's ok! The Nutella almost looks black on top when baked so don't be concerned - it does not taste burnt. Enjoy!
