the ultimate

I am someone who buys bananas and almost always forgets to eat them. So I end up making a lot of banana bread, which as most of you know requires very ripe bananas. Over the last few years I have perfected my basic recipe and then added everything from pumpkin spices to blueberries as variations. A while back I came uppon the ideal of adding Nutella! Brilliant, I know... then last week I saw these Reeses Peanut butter chips and thought whoah! The combo of the two would be A-May-Zing and I was right!

Make it!

Basic Banana Bread Recipe


3 med or 4 small very ripe bananas mashed

1.5 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 egg + 1 egg yolk lightly beat together

1 cup vanilla greek yogurt 

1 tsp vanilla

combine in a large bowl, I use a hand mixer on medium, then finish with a rubber spatula, preheat oven to 350º and then poor into a lightly greased bread pan or if like a muffin tin would also work.

Now for the Ultimate 

Add about 1/2 cup of the chips into batter and a couple of dollups of Nutella, you can mix it in as well or I like pouring 3/4 the batter into my pan then adding it down the center, then the rest of the batter on top. It will created a yummy, gooey center... or you could even do both!

Bake for 45-60 minutes, checking carefully toward the end so it does not over cook. 

It is really good served warm so I re-heat slices in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
