{Banana + Nutella Bread}





Don't make me any more sandwiches.  I don't like sandwiches he said to me one morning when I innocently asked him what he wanted in his sandwich for school.  Admittedly I had been receiving a lot of returns in relation to sandwiches.  Does he even realise that he has like 100 years of school left?  When do I stop being the chief lunchbox filler?  Does banana bread count as a suitable replacement for a sanger? Well it does in my house. As of today.  This also makes for quite a delicious breakfast, toasted and with lashings of butter, well it is banana and nutella bread after all ... butter seems essential, enjoy with your coffee whilst filling yet another lunchbox.

...the bread
2 large ripe bananas
2 eggs
1 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup (100g) melted butter
1/3 cup greek yoghurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon seasalt
1/2 cup nutella

Preheat oven to 180. Line your loaf tin with baking paper. 


In large bowl, squash the bananas with a fork to mash. Change to a wooden spoon and add the eggs, sugar, melted butter, yoghurt and vanilla, stir to combine. Add flour, baking soda and salt, mix until just combined. 

In a smaller separate bowl, stir the nutella through a cup of your banana batter.  Now put half the banana batter into the bottom of your loaf tin, flatten it out then add half the nutella batter, flatten that then top with the remaining banana batter, flatten and finish with the nutella batter. Good lord.

With a palette or long knife, reaching to the bottom of the tin swirl the batters together but not too much.  Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and let it sit for five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool.
