Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

Riped Bananas in the fruit bowl on my kitchen countertop are hinting me that they are going to be wasted in the next 2 days, If i don't put them to good use. Usually i get tempted to buy bananas in bulk when i see them fresh  at the store, with the promise to consume them all before they go ripe . Then after coming home it is a different story, i tend to forget to eat and they get ripe quickly esp in this summer. Then I see the possible ways of making a dish out of it, usually that is Banana Bread.  As I have tried several varieties in the past and looking for a new recipe, and stumbled upon this Nutella Swirled Banana Bread recipe, I have made some modifications to the recipe to suit my needs and Bread happened right then in my oven, it turned out beautiful and delicious. I took this bread to my colleagues at work and they Aah oohed and demanded for the recipe. So here is the recipe, Njoy!
Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

Ripe Bananas - 3

All Purpose Flour (APF) - 2 cups
Salt - a pinch
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Cinnamon Powder- 1/2 tsp

Butter - 1 cup ( 2 sticks)
Sugar - 1 cup ( i have used sugar in the raw)
Eggs - 2 Large
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp

Nutella - 1 Cup

Preparatory Steps:
  1. First peel bananas and add to medium bowl. By using fork mash the ripe bananas until they are completely mashed. 
  2. Mix APF, salt, baking soda and cinnamon powder in a medium bowl and set aside. 
  3. Take a 9*9 Bread Loaf pan and butter it on all sides and corners or spray with PAM oil.
  4. Pre heat the oven to 350 F
  1. Take a large bowl and melt the butter for 30 sec microwave. Add Sugar to the bowl and mix well with butter. Add eggs and vanilla extract to the bowl and mix with sugar and butter until everything is well combined. 
  2. Add flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix well until it is combined properly. 
  3. Add mashed bananas to the batter and fold gently up and down until it is fully incorporated. 
  4.  Pour 1/3 of batter into buttered loaf pan and spread it evenly, then add 1/3 of nutella scoops on top and swirl through it with fork or knife. Repeat this step until batter and nutella is done. 
  5. Tap the loaf pan on all sides so that the air bubbles will come out, which helps the bread to be intact while baking. 
  6. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour ( 60 minutes) in conventioanl oven.
  7. Once the oven is done, take the loaf pan out and cool for 3o min. Once it is cooled off invert the Bread to a plate, slice and enjoy along with morning coffee or afternoon tea. 

These bread slices can be stored at room temperature for 2 to 3 days or 4 to 5 days in refrigerator.

  • I have used Sugar in the Raw in this recipe, which is less sugary compare to white sugar. Since bananas are riped, you don't need lot of sugar for this recipe. If you have sweet tooth, you can up the sugar by 1/2 cup more in the same recipe. 
  • If you want slimmer version, replace  1 cup butter with 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, then taste will be discounted too, but you may not notice. 
  • Cinnamon powder is my addition in the recipe, I like slight spice with Banana or Apple dishes, if you don't like it you can skip it, no problem. 
  • If you want to vary this recipe with nuts, you can add  chopped walnuts or pecans on top to add some crunch and nutty taste. 

Hope you have enjoyed this recipe!
Take care until we meet here again
