Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. 2 large overripe bananas
  2. 1/3 cup melted butter
  3. 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed, light or dark)
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 large egg
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  8. 1/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  9. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  10. For the Nutella Glaze - 1/2 cup full fat milk, 1 cup Nutella


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) with a rack in the middle.
  2. Purée or mash the peeled ripe bananas until smooth.
  3. Place the banana purée into a large mixing bowl. Stir the melted butter. Stir in the brown sugar and salt. Whisk to break up any clumps of brown sugar. Stir in the beaten egg and vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just incorporated.
  6. Pour batter into a buttered loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. One way to test is to gently push the center top of the chocolate banana bread down with your finger. If it feels relatively firm and bounces back when you release your finger, that’ done.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Gently remove the loaf from the pan and place on a rack to cool completely.
  8. Place Nutella and milk in microwave safe dish; heat for 30 seconds or until smooth when stirred. Drizzle over warm bread, spreading evenly over Chocolate Banana Bread with a spatula.
