Banana Nutella Bread

Costco is a magical place. Where else can you get a years supply of toilet paper, a delicious lunch for $1.50 (hot dog and a lemonade, mmm) and enough rice to feed a family of 50?

The thing about Costco though, is that if you don’t have a family of 50 it can be difficult to get through a six pound jar of peanut butter or in this case–a double pack of amazing and delicious nutella. Now, generally I don’t let nutella in the house. It is like peanut butter but even more crack like. I can eat an entire jar in a couple of days and that is nothing compared to what Hubbs can do. Delicious thick multigrain bread and nutella? Heaven. The last time we visited Costco we made the mistake of going down the cereal aisle and Hubbs caught wind of the nutella double pack.

Of course, somehow, it ended up in the basket. I swore to myself that this time would be different. There would be no sneaking into the pantry with a spoon and eating it out of the jar. There would be no thick gobbing layers on top of pound cake, crackers, or multigrain bread. Oh no, this time I would show restraint where it’s chocolatey hazelnutty goodness was present. And, much to my stomachs surprise, I have. We’ve had the nutella in the house for about a month and still have one and a half jars of the magical stuff. I needed a way to *gasp* use it up and what better way then delicious nutella banana bread? It sounded like the perfect combination to me.

Banana Nutella Bread

Yield: 2 loaves

3/4 cup room temperature unsalted butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

3 ripe bananas

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup buttermilk

3/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups flour

1/2 cup hazelnuts (or walnuts) chopped

1/2 cup nutella

1. Pre-heat oven to 350. Spray 2 loaf pans with cooking spray.

2. In a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer) cream butter and sugars together until it is light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix together. Add bananas and combine.

3. Add vanilla and buttermilk. In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the banana mixture. Add walnuts and make sure everything is well combined.

4. Equally divide about 3/4 of the batter between the two loaf pans. Layer in the nutella (you can either warm it up so that it is easier, mine was rather cold so I just put in chunks of it) and top with the remainder of the batter. Nutella should be fairly covered.

5. Bake for one hour and fifteen minutes. A skewer should come out clean (aside from the nutella).

**Note: My bread stuck on the bottom of my pan. I believe it is because some of the nutella touched the bottom so make sure not to push the nutella down too far in the batter as well as spray your pan well!!
