Happy birthday, America!
I love Independence Day, not only because it gives me a (much-needed) short break in the middle of summer, but also because of BBQ parties, grilled steaks and burgers, and fireworks! I haven’t quite yet decided what I’ll be bringing to my friend’s party tomorrow, so today I’m sharing something that I made a couple of weeks ago!
I’m not a fan of bananas – something about the taste and texture is really gross to me – but I’m always up for banana bread and banana pudding. Weird, right? Banana bread is one of my favorite comfort foods, and recently I made a version with Nutella swirled right in!
Honestly, if there’s anything that can make bananas better for me, it’s Nutella.
The recipe is quite simple and turned out really nicely. The key is not to overmix the dough after adding the dry ingredients to the wet, or the bread may turn out too chewy – so, mix until the ingredients are just combined, and you don’t see the dry flour anymore.
