Forget Banana Bread — Make This Nutella Loaf Cake Instead

Let’s be honest — the novelty of staying inside and binge-watching movies and TV shows is wearing a little thin now. While it was great for the first few weeks, there’s only so many episodes of Ru Paul’s Drag Race that we can watch in a row. That’s probably why so many people are now choosing to spend their days cooking up a storm in the kitchen — and there’s no doubt about the fact that banana bread has been the baked good of choice on social media. If you’re sick of banana bread, though, it might be time to make this Nutella loaf cake instead…

The Method

Thankfully, the method couldn’t be any simpler if you tried. Simply coat a loaf tin with vegetable oil and preheat your oven to 175°C (347°F). Then mix the wet ingredients — minus the Nutella — and the dry ingredients together in separate bowls. When you’ve done this, combine both mixtures to create one big batch of batter. Then, separate the mixture once again, this time adding the Nutella to one half of the mixture. When you have done this, scoop both mixtures into the tin to create a marbled effect. Finally, place in the oven for around 45 minutes to an hour.

The end result is not only something that looks good but also something that tastes absolutely divine.
