Nutella Banana Bread


First, happy birthday to my wonderful husband Tom! Now we're finally the same age again and I don't have to hear any more jokes about him being so much younger than me.

He lives in some alternate universe where days are like years and the 28 days between our birthdays is like a decade to him. He finds it incredibly amusing. Personally, I think he's just lucky I like him.

He asked for a Boston Creme Pie for his birthday cake which I did not think to make in advance of the actual day, so I can't share that with you today. Hopefully soon though!

Not too long ago I was going through the pantry seeing what I had to use for baking. I came across a half empty jar of Nutella and remembered I have a ton of recipes involving Nutella pinned that I never seem to make for some reason.

I also had some over-ripe bananas and crossed my fingers I had a Nutella banana bread recipe out there waiting for me. Turns out I did!

    • 1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
    • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
    • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed 
    • 1 3/4 cup wheat flour
    • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder 
    • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. salt 
    • 1/4 cup Nutella 
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 9 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
2. Whisk together the butter, applesauce, brown sugar and eggs. Stir in the mashed banana.
3. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir until no lumps remain.
5. Microwave the Nutella for 30 seconds until just warmed up.
6. Pour half of the batter mixture into the prepared pan and add half of the warmed Nutella. Swirl with a spatula or knife. Add the remaining batter and top it with the remaining Nutella. Switl again.
7. Bake for 1 hour, rotating after 30 minutes.
8. Allow to cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack before serving.

Oh, this is good. The perfect amount of chocolatey goodness pairing so nicely with a banana bread. Plus, as far as bread goes, this is an incredibly easy recipe. You can have it prepared and in the pan in 15 minutes or less and then you can go about your day, doing as you please for that hour while magic happens in the oven.
