We have lots of Nutella in the house. Trying to fatten up the baby per doctor’s orders. It’s a preemie thing. Unfortunately, she’s refusing the awesomeness of the chocolate hazelnut wonder. Now I’m trying to cook with it so I will resist the temptation of dipping my fingers in the jar. Don’t tell me you haven’t thought about it too.
mmmmm…Nutella. Do I need to say anything more?
Hazelnut Banana Bread with a Nutella Swirl makes 1 loaf
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soada
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons of Nutella
Preheat oven to 350°.
Butter and flour a 4×8 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, mix bananas, butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Add the baking soda, salt, and hazelnuts to the mixture and stir. Finally, add the flour and mix till just combined.
Pour mixture into the loaf pan.
Add the four spoonfuls of Nutella on top of the mixture. Place them in a row down the center of the mixture in the pan. With a knife run the blade through the Nutella spoonfuls to create a swirl affect.
