but if I was to do some cooking, this would be something that I would make again - Nutella Swirled (or peanut butter) Banana Bread. This is a recipe from Emily at Sugar Plum. The bread is SO moist. Another plus...it actually BAKED completely in my oven! Woo Hoo! I loved the texture so much that when I went home, I made a similar version with peanut butter instead of nutella.
The Nutella is definitely more full of flavor and provides a more exciting visual effect as well. See?
Please try this...and more of Emily's recipes too. She makes great ones!
Marbled Nutella Banana Bread from Sugar Plum
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large eggs
1/2 cup Nutella
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together banana, butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy and well combined. I used a regular bowl and spoon but Emily suggested a mixer. Beat in egg until well combined. Stir in dry ingredients. Place 1/2 of of the batter into a medium bowl; stir in Nutella until combined.
Alternate spoonfuls of batter into loaf pan until all of the batter is used up - I did mine in a checkerboard pattern. Swirl batter gently with a knife (not too much!). Bake 1 hour or until well risen, deep golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into bread comes out with moist crumbs attached. Enjoy!
