My children have developed a serious addiction to Nutella. Although I had seen this product on the grocery shelf many times, I had never tried it myself. I picked up a jar last year and it vanished in just a few days.
So what was this Nutella stuff? I knew it was a hazelnut and chocolate spread but what was the big deal? It's delicious, that's the big deal!
I started to hear stories from the kids about how "everyone at school loves Nutella" and I realized we could have some fun cooking with this tasty spread. Well, today was the day to attempt Nutella Bread and it was a big hit. The bread was moist with almost a brownie-like texture and full of that familiar Nutella flavor. The addition of a little smear of peanut butter was suggested by my youngest. If you are a Nutella fan...you've got to try this bread. Enjoy!!
2 1/4 cups Flour
3 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup Milk
1 cup Nutella Spread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the milk, eggs and Nutella together until creamy, then add dry ingredients and beat until blended and smooth.
Pour batter into greased 8x4 inch loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the loaf. When the toothpick comes out clean, the bread is ready.
