It was a huge hit. Everyone loved it.
This is really easy to make, takes about 10 minutes to mix together. You do need to use really ripe bananas, I tend to always buy extra bananas so that I have some to go overripe, then I freeze them until I need them.
I have found I need 3 large bananas to make 1 1/4 cups mashed banana.
I bake it for about 1 hr 10 minutes, but I start checking from the one hour mark.
Give this a go, your family will love you (even more) for it.
Makes 1 loaf
1/4 cup (55g) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups mashed bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk
2 cups (300g) plain flour
3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (250g) Nutella
Preheat oven to 180C/160C. Grease and line with baking paper a 11.5cm x 21.5cm (base measurement) loaf tin.
In a large mixing bowl add the softened butter and sugar, beat until light and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add the mashed banana, milk and vanilla extract, beat until well combined.
Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt, using a spoon, mix until just combined. Do not over mix.
In a medium bowl add the nutella and 1 cup of the banana mixture, stir well to combine. (You can heat the nutella in a microwave for 15 seconds before adding the banana mixture, I don't do this, but you can, to soften the nutella).
Add alternate spoonfuls of the nutella mixture and the banana mixture into your prepared loaf tin. Once it has all been added, use a knife to swirl the mixtures together, do not over swirl.
Bake for 1 hour or until it feels baked by pressing on the loaf in the centre, it shouldn't feel too soft, it can take an additional 10 minutes, depends on your oven, just start checking at the one hour mark.
