Nutella Banana Bread
There's no question that bananas and Nutella belong together. While the two are great companions on toast (or even by themselves), there's something extra special about Nutella being swirled into a loaf of banana bread in our Nutella Banana Bread Recipe. As the loaf bakes, the Nutella expands slightly but stays distinct from the banana batter—creating a beautiful marbled effect. The Nutella on the top of the loaf becomes slightly crisp on the outside, yielding to velvety smooth Nutella underneath. As the banana bakes in the loaf, its flavor intensifies and the crumb of the loaf sets into a soft and moist bread. When sliced, the loaf yields perfect pieces of banana bread already layered with ribbons of Nutella.The batter of the bread is a simple mix of mashed bananas, sugar, oil, and vanilla mixed with flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This 9-ingredient loaf comes together in minutes and bakes for about an hour. It makes the ideal afternoon snack or a sweet breakfast bite. Because of its composition, the bread keeps well for several days wrapped on the counter, so make it in advance and enjoy it throughout the week.
