NutterLynn’s Banana Bread

SO my boyfriend bought a bunch of bananas a week ago and ate one. Rather than sacrifice the remainder to the fruit flies I decided to put them to use. Well, when I went to make my traditional banana bread recipe I found I only had half the butter necessary. Since I was “in” for the night but determined to bake, I chose another equally fatty and delectable substance… NUTTELLA. Mmmmmmm Enjoy

* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 cup and 1 TBS butter
*1/4 cup Nutella (Hazelnut Spread)
* 3/4 cup brown sugar
* 1 cap of vanilla extract
* 2 eggs, beaten
* 4 mashed overripe bananas

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. ( I use pan spray and a roll pan)
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, nutella and brown sugar. Stir in vanilla, eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes (50 minutes for the jelly pan), until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.

IMPORTANT: Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. It’s still cooking when you take it out of the oven.


  1. The ability to use bad bananas are one reason why they're a near perfect fruit. And we can't think of a better butter substitute than Nutella.

  2. um bunner is there any left? you should bring it over on wednesday!

  3. i want to go home and make this now. but since i have neither an oven nor over-ripe bananas, a nutella banana crepe on the way home will have to do.

  4. still hard for me to fathom not having an oven ... still, no excuses for not making tres bien salads, ya hear?

  5. i don't know if people will believe this or not, but here in germany they have MULTIPLE brands of generic hazelnut spread and they're all better than nutella to me. i can just imagine how they would add to this recipe.
