Banana Bread with Nutella Swirl
I love banana bread. Big slices toasted and buttered nom nom nom! I love to experiment with what flavours I can put into breads. Coconut, almonds, oats and of coarse chocolate! Nutella is one of those 'foods' that are a fantastic addition to cakes. You can use it as an icing. I like to dot it through baked goods, or spread it on a toasted croissant. Today I thought I would try swirling it through banana bread.
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 medium mashed bananas
1/3 vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons nutella
Preheat oven to 160C fan forced.
Sift the flour. baking powder, cinnamon and sugar into a mixing bowl.
Next mix all the rest of the ingredients, except the nutella, into a small bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry.
Spoon 1/2 the mixture into a lined baking loaf tin, then dot the nutella over the mixture. Spread the remaining mixture over the nutella.
Bake for about 40-50 minutes, depending on your oven.
