Happy July 4th Weekend. I hope everyone has a great time BBQ-ing and spending time with family and friends. I can't decide if I like July 4th being on a Saturday or not. It doesn't seem like you get enough time off and that its just a regular weekend. This recipe is adapted from Chef in Training and was delicious. Perfect for breakfast with a cup of tea.
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup nutella, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 5 loaf pan with PAM. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a separate large bowl mix together the butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time beating after each time. Add mashes banana, milk, and vanilla.
In a small bowl or measuring cup that is microwave safe add nutella and heat for 20 seconds. Stir.
Add 1 cup of the banana bread batter to the Nutella and stir until well mixed.
Spoon Nutella batter alternately with the banana bread batter into prepared pan. Swirl batters together with a knife.
Bake 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in pan for 15 minutes and then remove loaf from pan and cool completely.
Slice when cooled.
