The Best Easy Fluffy Nutella Buttercream Recipe Ever!

Hey its Carla from CarlasCakes and welcome to my Carla in the Kitchen Blog! I’ll turn anything into NUTELLA!! Or is it… I’ll turn NUTELLA into anything? Ingredients: 1 lb (4 sticks) unsalted butter (room temp.) 13 oz of Nutella 2¾ cup powdered sugar 1 tsp pure vanilla extract Directions: Place the butter and Nutella in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium-high for 3 minutes. Add the powdered sugar ¼ cup at a time. Add the vanilla once all the powdered sugar has been incorporated. Beat on medium for another 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low for 1 minute. This helps to smooth the icing and release any air bubbles. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! Welcome to my Carla in the Kitchen Blog! Today is all about banana bread. One of my favourites! I have tried countless amounts of yummy banana bread recipes as my husband is literally obsessed with bananas! He’ll eat it any way possible; on toast, in a shake, with ice cream, yogurt… Anything!

The last couple of recipes that I have tried where very good, however, I wanted them to be more moist, soft and to have MORE Banana (husbands request). I took bits and pieces of my favourite recipes that I have tried along the way to come up with what I call the BEST Banana Bread Recipe Ever! Its very moist, soft and of course, I have added EXTRA banana to the mix! It is a super easy recipe which I am sure you will all love.
