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!
When it comes to banana bread he is defiantly my number one taste tester (which he does with a smile on his face). 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. I added Nutella, which you can opt out of or of course you can add other mix ins like LOTUS or Dulce De Leche.
By the way, definitely make this recipe before you have guests over because trust me… your house is going to smell amazing!
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
6 ripe bananas, mushed
1 1/2 cup plus 3 tbsp cake flour (or 1 1/2 cup flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup nutella
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Cream together butter and sugar.
Add eggs and crushed bananas.
Sift together flour, soda and salt.
Add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla.
Add chocolate chips.
Melt your Nutella in the microwave for about 20 seconds to make it easy to spread.
Pour half of your banana bread mix into a prepared greased (I like to use cooking spray).
Add all your Nutella on top of the banana bread mix spread it out.
Add the other half of your banana bread mix on top.
Spread your banana bread mix evenly on top of the Nutella layer, to create your final top layer. Swirl the mix around with a knife.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes (depending on your oven).
Once that is done, let it cool 5 min for a bit before taking it out of the pan. Let it cool another 10-15 min before serving!
This bread is honestly amazing! It keeps well in the refrigerator as well, if you want to package it for later. It make a great gift for friends and family. Or maybe you want to impress your guests or neighbours!
One thing that I love about baking banana bread is that it makes your house smell so good! I love baking banana bread right before I know ill be having some guests over.
Now lets finally cut into it..
The chocolate chips are perfectly placed in all parts of the bread. And you can see the gooey delicious Nutella strips in each slice I cut!
This recipe is a keeper! I got the thumbs up from my hubby so I guess this means I can keep it in my family for generations to come!
