Nutella Banana Bread

Do you ever wonder how you can change up plain old banana bread? We love banana bread around here but it is sure nice to change it up every once in a while. So when I saw this recipe over at Sugar Plum I knew it had to be delish. If you need a change give this bread a try. It really is a wonderful combination.

Nutella Banana Bread adapted from Sugar plum
5 3/4 cup flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c buttermilk
4 c. bananas, mashed
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
1 1/4 c. sugar
1 T vanilla
5 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup nutella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 3 large loaf pans or 7-8 mini ones with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugars. Then add the mashed bananas, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk and mix well. Stir in the flour, powder, soda, and salt and mix just till combined. Divide the batter in half, pouring on half into another bowl. Stir the nutella into one half of the batter until combined. Alternate spoonfuls of batter into loaf pans until all the batter is used up. Swirl the batter gently with a knife(not too much!!) Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few moist crumbs on it.

Note: it makes quite a bit of bread. if you don't want that much just cut the recipe in half or take some to a neighbor. It also freezes well so you can make it all and just freeze what you won't eat and take it out when you need it!! (that is what I do)
