Recipe 3: Nutella Swirled Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Doesn’t the title alone make your mouth water?!  I read it and immediately knew what those ripe bananas in my freezer were going in.  It was perfect timing for this recipe to fall into my hands because a friend was coming over for dinner, and I don’t do dinner without dessert.  You could say I have a sweet tooth…

This bread (more like cake) is dense to say the least.  Even though the recipe calls for about 50 minutes of baking, my bread required more time.  To prevent the nutella topping from burning, I recommend covering the whole bread in foil.  After the middle of the cake is almost ready, take off the foil to let the top brown.  Otherwise you will have a burnt nutella topping–no good.

My other suggestion for this bread is to swirl some nutella throughout the batter.  The recipe calls for nutella only on the top, but I definitely wished I could taste the nutella throughout.  My sister tried the recipe a few days later and said the nutella throughout was a good modification.


Nutella swirled goodness!
