Nutella Banana Bread

I am in love.

Yes I am in love with my husband….but I am also in love with Nutella. I know crazy right?!

I found this blog called Nutella Everyday and it is filled with recipes involving Nutella.  Oh my! It is getting to be an issue for me because when I see a recipe with it, I must make it immediately.

It was no different for this AMAZING recipe.  It was like two, already great tasting, foods got together and decided to blow everyone away with their delicious powers.  I am talking about the day banana bread met up with Nutella and produced a masterpiece.

The BEST way to make banana bread!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9×5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda & salt.
  3. In a separate large bowl, beat sugar and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, milk and vanilla. Beat until blended. Add flour mixture, beat at low speed just until flour is incorporated (don’t over mix).
  4. Spoon Nutella into a small dish and soften in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Add 1 cup of the banana bread batter to the Nutella and stir until blended well.
  5. Spoon Nutella batter alternately with plain banana bread batter into the prepared pan. Swirl batters together with a knife.
  6. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, it will seem a tiny bit undercooked but that’s what makes it good. Cool for at least 15 minutes in the pan, and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

      If the bananas are ripe enough the sugar can be completely left out. Just like a 3/4 cup of Nutella is way to much for my taste. I used 3 Tablespoons. Way too sweet otherwise. But the texture is great.

  27. 29

    I just made this. It was absolutely DIVINE. Top 10 thing I ever baked.

  28. 30

    I am baking this recipe and the 8 x4 loaf pan is way too small. A lot of batter leaked out of the pan and onto the floor of the oven. I would suggest at least a 9 x 5 or larger loaf pan.

  29. 31

    I just made this…smells delicious, but my bread “fell” in the middle and seems to be not done in the spots where the Nutella is….did I possibly add too much Nutella? I baked for 55 minutes and let cool for about an hour before transferring onto cooling rack

  30. 33

    I made this last night and served it to my kids for breakfast. The bread is delicious but there is way too much nutella. I must not have swirled as much toward the edges of the pan, so those spots had a smaller (just right) amount of Nutella. The middle ended up as a gooey, super sweet mess. I might make this again but will probably use about 1/4 c. Nutela.

  31. 34

    Very nice cake. I love banana and nutella together.

    Loved it! I used peanut butter instead of the Nutella, only because my daughter in allergic to tree nuts. It is so yummy. I love reading your blog and making your recipes. Never disappointed

  33. 36

    This looks fabulous! Has anyone tried substituting the flour to make it gluten free? I’d love to try this!

  34. 37

    Hi there, this looks delicious! I am thinking of making the recipe in mini loaves for Christmas treats. Do you have any suggestions for cooking the mini loaves? Sadly, I’m not much of a baker!

  35. 38

    This is a nice twist to banana nut bread. Who doesn’t LOVE Nutella?! I discovered it is best to grease pan instead of spray. Very pretty bread, too. Great gift!

  36. 39

    made this the other night with my 5 yr old for dessert. It was a very moist and flavorful bread and was a great hit. even my non-banana bread eating husband had a generous size piece.

    Thanks for sharing this

    I just made this and added about 3/4 cup of coconut. This bread is absolutely delicious!

  38. 41

    Just made it… incredible!

  39. 42

    i just wanted to say THANK YOU for sharing this recipe! a friend of mine posted it and i am about to serve it up to my family! it smells delicious and looks amazing!

  40. 43

    Really Nikki?? I so love your posts but oh my!! Nutella and Banana Bread?? Now I’ve got to make this! Sounds sooo good….thanks for consistently posting such yummy recipes!

  41. 44

    I would use a 9×5 loaf pan next time, my batter is spilling out! However it did smell good while baking….until the bits on the oven floor began to char :(

  42. 45

    I made this bread and it was AMAZING. I used it to make French Toast…. covered it in pure maple syrup…. IT WAS AMAZING! :D <3

  43. 46

    By no stretch of the imagination does this batter fit into a 8×4 pan. It’s in my oven now and thank goodness I had the foresight to put a baking sheet under it because it’s a goopy, sloppy mess. It was way too much batter for that size pan–a 9×5 would have been perfect (and I followed the recipe to a T). I hope this saves someone a horrible looking mess in their oven. I just hope something is salvageable.

  44. 47

    Oh, and now that I looked at your picture, you did use a 9×5 pan (I can tell by the shape). You may want to fix your recipe to help others.

  45. 48

    I made this today it turned out perfect! The whole house smelled of banana bread and it came out chewy and wonderful. Definitely a keeper! Thank you for this recipe :)

  46. 49

    Wowzer!! This recipe is amazing! It was super easy and by bible talk group loved it! In fact they loved it so much, I didn’t have any pieces left and had lots of requests to make it again! So with the family coming to town the next day I had to whip up another batch! Yummy yum!

  47. 50

    Love Nutella and bananas. Looking forward to trying this !!

    The pan size is way too small for this recipe. Use a larger pan than the 8″ x 4″ one!!!! You will have a huge mess in your oven & a possible oven fire if you don’t use a larger loaf pan. This happened to me, so learn from my mistake!
