Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

Oh man, this bread is good! Honestly you could probably put Nutella on cardboard and it would taste amazing. Not that I would KNOW this... my house isn't filled with piles of half eaten cardboard, promise.

I'm always looking for something new to do with bananas though. Because when you're a food blogger making boring ol' banana bread just doesn't cut it.

The best thing about making banana anything is its usually ridiculously easy and ridiculously moist. This bread was no exception and the Nutella adds a melted chocolate swirl... Amazing!

You will need:
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, mashed
1/4 cup sour cream
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt) and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x5" loaf pan, set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the bananas, sour cream, eggs, and melted butter until combined. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and stir until incorporated.

Pour half of the banana bread batter into your prepared loaf pan.

Place chocolate hazelnut spread into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 20-25 seconds or until the spread is smooth and slightly runny.
Drizzle half of the spread onto the top of half of your banana batter in the pan and swirl.

Cover with remaining banana bread batter and drizzle the remaining chocolate spread over the top. Swirl for effect.

Bake in your preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (melted Nutella aside).
Let cool completely in the pan before inverting onto a cooling rack or serving platter.

Slice, serve, and enjoy! This bread is amazing by itself or topped with a slight schmear of cream cheese! YUM!
