Think of this as a breakfast bread version of bananas Foster. Crowned with golden Caramelized Banana halves and offering a hint of cinnamon flavor, this loaf is all about taking the banana to the nth power of sweetness.
We spike the traditional banana bread formula with a double dose of crème fraîche (in the batter and the glaze) to tenderize the crumb and offer a touch of tang to round out the flavor.
Unlike regular cocoa, black cocoa is void of any acidity, so it’s able to deliver a deep cocoa punch without overpowering the banana flavor. This indulgent black cocoa banana bread is brimming with chocolate chips and smooth chunks of mashed banana. If you don’t have black cocoa on hand, Dutch process cocoa will work too.
The addition of everyone’s favorite cookie butter into our Banana Nut Biscoff Bread balances out this recipe’s nuttiness with irresistible sweetness and a smooth, rich flavor. This Banana Nut Biscoff Bread is just as at home on your breakfast as it is alongside your afternoon cup of coffee.
Yes, Nutella makes everything better—but the true star of this nutty Nutella Banana Bread is the Chocolate Hazelnut Streusel.
