Marbled Nutella Banana Bread

Marbled Nutella Banana Bread

Overly ripe fruit is constant in my household.  I had a couple of bananas left sitting in my fruit basket.  They’re way past its prime and it doesn’t appear that anyone will be reaching for it anytime soon so I decided to use them in this recipe.  Chocolate and banana go so well together, why not pair it with Nutella? I used an 8-inch square pan for this because I wanted to be able to cut them in squares but feel free to use an 8-inch or 9-inch loaf pan for this.  Baking time would still be the same.

Print this recipe


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large bananas (about 1 cup), mashed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of Mexican vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup of nutella


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

In a medium bowl combine together flour, salt and baking soda.  Mix well and set aside.

Using a stand mixer (or mix by hand) cream sugar and butter until well blended.  Add bananas, eggs (one at a time, mix and then the next egg), vanilla extract and buttermilk.  Mix until blended.  Slowly add in the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.  Mix at a low speed until just moistened.

Add 1 cup of batter to nutella.  Stir until well combined.  Spoon plain batter alternately with chocolate batter into the prepared pan.  Swirl batters using a chopstick or knife.  If using a knife, be careful not to scratch your baking pan.

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Let the bread cool in the pan on the cooling rack.
