142.6…Nutella Banana Bread
What a productive Sunday! Well, except that I didn’t get out of my pajamas until 2:00PM but that’s ok.
There was breakfast:
Egg Beaters mixed with salsa, light Swiss cheese all on a sandwich thin with some strawberries on the side.
Then something wonderful happened: Nutella Banana Bread.
My kids ate half of it already. It is the best banana bread ever. There was only one problem: the loaf pan specified was too small and it came out of the pan all over my oven. The top got a little burnt and the center wasn’t completely done. That actually turned out to be a little bit of a blessing…the Nutella was a little gooey inside. I ate that piece.
Nutella Banana Bread
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 over-ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup Nutella
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and sour cream, then cinnamon, flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Next add the bananas.
Place Nutella in a small bowl and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir until smooth. Add one cup of the banana bread batter into the Nutella and mix well.
Place large spoonfuls of batter into a greased 8 x 4 inch (May want to go bigger!) loaf pan, alternating between the banana and Nutella batters. Swirl the two batters together with a knife. Bake 60-65 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Lunch was some Madras Lentils, brown rice, Cholula hot sauce and cilantro:
Then I cleaned out my pantry. I took everything out, cleaned the shelves and the floor and reorganized everything.
So much better!!!
