Peanut Butter, Nutella and Banana Bundt #BundtBakers

This cake is loaded with nutty flavors.  Delicious banana cake flavored with both peanuts and hazelnuts.  


I served this up as a Birthday Cake for my neighbor........
I am hosting Bundt Bakers this month.  As November is National Peanut Butter Month I asked them to share a Peanut Butter recipe, however being mindful of allergies I extended it to include any kind of Nut Butter.

Let's take a look at what they went nuts with.......


BundtBakers

#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. 

Updated links for all of our past events and more information about BundtBakers, can be found on our home page.



My nieghbors birthday falls on Halloween.  Halloween is pretty quiet here in the country.  Our little town of 4000 people does do an annual event where there is a huge bonfire, hot dogs, hot chocolate and Trunk or Treat.  This is a nice event but we don't have any little ghosts or goblins so we don't normally attend and no little monsters come begging at our door.

This year, when it seemed the pandemic may have been slowing down, the town still held the event but with social distancing and masks in place.  Now we are seeing that perhaps we let our guards down too soon as this virus rears it's ugly head again.

My neighbor is having an especially hard time during this pandemic.  She ended up having to put her mother into a nursing home with dementia.  This is hard enough to do at any time, I can't imagine how hard it is when you are unable to even visit with your loved one that you had to place into residence.



So with this in mind, I decided to have our closest neighbors over for a birthday dinner on Halloween Night.  It was a fun get together and I'm glad we did it when the getting was good because now it looks like we are all on lockdown mode again.  

As sometimes happens around here, I got busy and forgot to take a photo of the cake before I served it to my guests.  So I'm making do with what I have but you can take my word for it that it was gorgeous.

*****One final note.  This recipe makes a lot of batter.  I had enough for two regular size bundts.  I only made one large bundt and still had a ton of batter left over.

  4. Pour half of the batter into a large bundt pan that has been treated with baking spray.  Drop dollops of Nutella over the batter, using 1/2 a cup and reserving the othe half.  Swirl the nutella throughout the batter with a butter knife.
  5. Pour the remaining batter on top and bake in a preheated 325* oven for 75-90 minutes, until a skewer inserted removes cleanly.
