Feed Me: Nutella Banana Bread

We have been MIA for a few weeks now, sorry about that! Jess and I decided that the blog should always remain fun. So when life is crazy with life things, those come first.

Jess was in town two weekends ago, which was great! We did a lot of relaxing, which we both needed! We had every intention of making this recipe, but she had to jet out on Sunday to avoid the crazy snow storm that hit the next day. I didn’t want the bananas to go bad, so I decided to make it for my husband and I. I posted a pic to instagram (follow me @meljparrish)  and my followers/friends went crazy!! It was pretty spectacular if I do say so myself. Next time I would cook it for a little less, I love when it is under cooked. I would also add walnuts, chocolate chips, or both to take it to the next level. Happy baking!

Recipe: Nutella Swirled Banana Bread – Original Recipe
Makes 2 loaves **I halved the recipe. 

Ingredients:
3 large or 4 medium (2 cups mashed) bananas, yellow with brown speckles
1 cup brown sugar, packed
4 oz. (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. rum, optional
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup Nutella

**Next time around I would probably add walnuts or chocolate chips. I like having a crunch. 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pans with butter, lined with buttered parchment. Mash the bananas with a potato masher, so they still have some small lumps, set aside.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar, butter, milk, eggs, vanilla and rum. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the sugar/butter mixture, just until smooth. Add the bananas and mix just until they are combined. Place the Nutella in a bowl and microwave for about 20 seconds to soften it. If you don’t use a microwave, you can heat the Nutella over a double boiler for a couple of minutes. Drizzle 2/3 of the Nutella over the banana bread batter. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the Nutella into the batter, trying not to over mix, so you can see the swirls when it’s baked. Add the rest of the Nutella and swirl into the top of the batter. Bake for about 45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
