You Really need Nutella Banana Bread in your life.
Moist, delicious banana bread is already amazing on it’s own, however this recipe for Nutella Banana Bread is ‘knock your socks off’ amazing!
Yogurt in this banana bread batter keeps it nice and moist and gives it a great flavor. Gently fold the wet and dry ingredients together with a spatula or wooden spoon just until no white streaks remain. Be careful not to overmix, or it will bake up flat. This goes for any quick bread recipe (like zucchini or gingerbread). If you over mix it you’ll create too much gluten that will make the dough stiff.
How to make Nutella Banana Bread
Pour out just enough banana bread batter to cover the bottom of a greased and floured bread/loaf pan.
Drizzle very warm Nutella over the batter. Try to avoid large clumps (like I did in the above photo), but if you get them it’s not the end of the world ;0) Top with another thin layer of banana bread batter and drizzle more Nutella over the top. Repeat these steps until the batter is all used up. Drizzle some Nutella lightly over the top as the final layer.
Take a long wooden skewer and gently stir the batter in a horizontal motion to make swirls of Nutella deep inside the loaf pan. You’ll only need to do this three or four times. The goal is just to make swirls, not completely mix the Nutella into the batter.
To finish it off, drag the skewer over the top in alternating directions to make the pretty pattern shown above. Then pop it in your preheated oven and bake for about 55 minutes. Test with a clean wooden skewer in the center for doneness; it is done when NO yellow-colored banana bread batter sticks to the skewer. (Nutella stuck to it is okay).
