Nutella Banana Bread
Makes 1 (8½x4½-inch) loaf
  • 1⅔ cups (209 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon (1.5 grams) kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 grams) baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25 grams) baking powder
  • 1⅛ cups (255 grams) mashed banana (about 3 medium bananas)
  • ¾ cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (100 grams)
  • ⅓ cup plus 2 teaspoons (85 grams) canola oil
  • ¼ cup (60 grams) whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (128 grams) Nutella
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Streusel (recipe follows)
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (170°C). Lightly spray an 8½x4½-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Line pan with parchment paper, letting excess extend over sides of pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. In a large bowl, whisk together mashed banana, sugar, eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla. Fold in flour mixture just until combined.
  3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat Nutella on high in 2 (15-second) intervals, stirring between each. Spoon half of batter into prepared pan; spoon half of warm Nutella over batter. Top with remaining batter and remaining Nutella; swirl together using a knife. Top with Chocolate Hazelnut Streusel.
  4. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 25 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack.
