I chose this selection because I liked the fact that the recipe made 2 loaves.  I served one loaf up for dessert when our daughter Nicole and son in law Pierre came for dinner.  The second loaf got wrapped up to be donated as a dessert for our Parish Fish Fry.

The breads turnedout lovely and they tasted as good as they looked.  Nicole took the remainders of the dessert loaf home with her and I was proud to place the second loaf on the dessert table at church.

What's better than banana bread? Banana bread with swirls of Nutella. This delicious recipe makes 2 loaves that are delicious after dinner as dessert or in the morning with your coffee.
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 50 MinTotal time: 1 Hour


  • 4 large over ripe bananas
  • 1 c. brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/2 c. half and half
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 3 1/3 c. flour
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 t. kosher salt
  • 1/2 c. nutella


  1. Place bananas, brown sugar, butter, eggs, cream and vanilla in a large bowl and mix until well combined.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the banana mixture and stir until just combined and smooth.
  3. Heat the Nutella in the microwave for about 20 seconds to soften
  4. Divide half of the batter between two 8x4" loaf pans that have been treated with baking spray. Drizzle with half of the Nutella and swirl with a knife.
  5. Divide remaining batter and cover the batter in each loaf pan. Top each with remaining Nutella and swirl it through the batter.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350* oven for about 50 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the center removes cleanly. Let cakes cool in pans for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
