44 | 52 Nutella Banana Bread

Thanks, cousin! 
Without you or Facebook I might not have stumbled upon this recipe. 

Don't bake this if you are afraid of sugar. Or if you don't like it sweet. 
Or worse - if you don't like Nutella.
But of course you wouldn't be here if that was the case. Right?

Nutella Banana Bread

4 bananas, ripe & mashed
227 g (1 cup) butter, room temperature
2 eggs
400 g (2 cups) sugar
510 g (4 cups) flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
120 ml (1/2 cup) water
2 teaspoons baking soda
280 g (1 cup) nutella
180 g (1 cup) chocolate chips
  • Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F).
  • Cream together butter, sugar, and eggs.
  • Add flour and salt. Mix until crumbly.
  • Dissolve baking soda in warm water and add to the crumbly mix.
  • Fold in mashed bananas and chocolate chips.
  • Pour half of the dough into two bread pans. Spread 1/4 cup of Nutella length down the middle of the dough in each pan. Fill up with the remaining dough and repeat the Nutella step, swirling it together with the dough using a knife.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes. 

My modifications:
I only made half of the recipe because I only had 2 bananas... And I reduced the sugar to 150 g (3/4 cup) for half the recipe (=  300 g (1 1/2 cups) for the full recipe).

The taste:
It's yummy but very sweet (and I already reduced the sugar...). I was only able to eat it in very small portions (which is actually not such a bad thing, right?). I'm not sure yet if I would make it again though. But that shouldn't keep you - it's good!

Have you baked anything with Nutella? What was it and how did you like it?
