Lisieux Recipes: Erica's Nutella Banana Bread
If you’ve been feeling the drag of staying home every day, here’s a special treat that you and your loved ones will enjoy!
This recipe I found from Broma Bakery flips an ordinary banana bread recipe into a comfort food from your childhood with a chocolatey twist.
3 extremely ripe (even brown) bananas, mashed
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 eggs, room temperature
6 ounces non-fat Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup Nutella
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas with the melted butter, stirring to combine. Mix in the eggs, greek yogurt, and vanilla. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet.
Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Melt Nutella in the microwave for 20 seconds. Drizzle half of Nutella over batter, gently swirling the batter with a knife to form ribbons of Nutella. Pour the second half of the batter on top and repeat with remaining Nutella. Bake for 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the loaf pan.
