Everything Is Better With Nutella

Being the product of a mother that has a great affection for chocolate and a father that loves hazelnuts, it's probably no surprise I inherited the "Nutella" gene.
FACT:   The amount of Nutella jars sold annually if lined up, would wrap around the moon four times!  Obviously, I'm not alone....

Here's a tasty recipe for all you Nutella Freaks out there.  
I discovered this recipe from another blog and had to make it!    
A combination of  Nutella and bananas = the perfect marriage.

Nutella Banana Bread


2 cups  all purpose flour
3/4 tsp.  baking soda
1/2   tsp. salt
1/4 cup  room temperature unsalted butter 
1 cup sugar (I use brown sugar)
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana
1/3 cup milk ( I use 1%)
1 tsp.  vanilla extract
3/4 cup Nutella

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 8x4 inch loaf pan with nonstick spray

-In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda & salt.

-In another large bowl, beat sugar and butter until blended.  Add eggs one at a time, beat well after each addition.  Add banana, milk and vanilla, and beat until blended.

-Gradually add flour mixture, beating constantly until blended ( don't over mix)

-Spoon Nutella into a small dish and soften in the microwave for about 15 seconds.  Add one cup of the banana bread batter to the Nutella and stir until blended.
-Spoon Nutella batter alternately with plain banana bread batter into the prepared pan.  Swirl batters together with a knife.

-Bake 50 to 60 minutes.  It may seem a tiny bit undercooked, but that's what makes it good.  Cool for at least 15 minutes in the pan, and then turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
