Banana nutella bread

Happy World Nutella Day! February 5th is World Nutella Day. I learned about World Nutella Day last year shortly after I tried and fell in love with Nutella.

I’ve baked a lot of successful recipes with Nutella on this blog, which you can view at the end of this post. There are so many different ways I enjoy eating Nutella, but one of my favorites is eating Nutella on toasted bread for breakfast. I’ve said many times that I’m pretty sure I could eat Nutella on toast every day for breakfast and not get sick of it.

So I thought about trying to create a breakfast like Nutella recipe with this banana Nutella bread. This cake bread was light and moist. I did feel that the Nutella flavor got a little lost despite me heaping generous tablespoons into the batter. Perhaps next time I’ll try for a Nutella swirl effect. It still tastes good though, just a little light on the Nutella flavor.

  1. Like you, I’ve found that Nutella can often get lost in cake-like recipes…the more the better! Thanks for participating, and I hope you had a great World Nutella Day 🙂
