Cat Cora’s Nutella Banana Bread

Cat Cora’s Nutella Banana Bread

Makes one loaf


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt 

3 overripe bananas, smashed well 

6 tablespoons butter, melted

2/3 cup sugar

2 eggs 

1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt 

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/3 cup Nutella


Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add in the smashed bananas, melted butter and sugar, stirring to combine. Mix in the eggs, greek yogurt, and vanilla. Set aside. Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Spoon in half of Nutella over batter, gently swirling the batter with tip of a knife to form ribbons of Nutella. Pour the second half of the batter on top and repeat with remaining Nutella. Bake for approximately 50 minutes, or until a toothpick or skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. 

Remember to check on your bread while it’s baking. If you notice the top is browning too fast... cover it with foil for the duration and/or lower the oven temp by 25 degrees.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes or eat warm out of the oven.

Chocolate Budino

Budino in Italian means pudding but this is more like a molten cake, moist and almost gooey in the middle when served warm from the oven. I like to serve the budino with a scoop of homemade Banana Chocolate-Chunk Ice Cream (in my cookbook, Cooking From the Hip), but it's also great with creme anglaise and fresh raspberries or strawberries.
