I love Pinterest! It is my perfect go-to for just about everything from how to get the rust stain out of our toilet to a new craft for the girls to fabulous recipes. And speaking of fabulous recipes...
Nutella Banana Bread
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup applesauce (in place of vegetable oil)
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup nutella, softened in a microwavable bowl for 10 minutes
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl, combine the eggs, bananas, applesauce, milk and vanilla. Add the smaller bowl to the flour mixture bowl, stirring just until combined.
Now comes the fun part...Pour in half of banana bread batter into greased loaf pan then dollop in a few spoonfuls of the softened nutella. Repeat with remaining banana bread batter and then again with the dollops of nutella. Take a knife and swirl it around and it'll be oh, so pretty.
Bake at 325° for 1 hour 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
I will eat just about anything with nutella and this new recipe is sure to become a favorite. I just took my go-to banana bread recipe and added the nutella. I may try it again next time with some peanut butter also. Too much? I don't think so!
