Nutella Banana Bread

Adapted from Sugar Plum

Makes 1 loaf

2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana (about 2 large bananas)

6 tbsp unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1/2 cup nutella

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl. 

2. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together banana, butter, sugars, and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy and well combined, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs until well combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Divide batter in half and place half in a medium bowl. Stir in nutella until blended.

3. Alternate layers of each batter into a well greased 9" loaf pan. Swirl gently with a sharp knife. Bake for 1 hour or until well risen, deep golden brown, and a sharp knife inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
