A few months back, I created a recipe for Banana Nutella Muffins. They were a HIT!
I can easily down a 1/4 batch in one sitting if I am not careful.
I never really understood people who said when they try something good, they can’t stop.
This is that recipe for me. I eat one piece and I keep coming back for more. I just can’t put it down! Very difficult when you’re trying to lose those last few baby weight pounds! hahaha
Anyway, this is still totally worth sharing because as much as I love the muffins, this cake is beautiful!
It is so perfect to take to a dinner party, or as a hostess gift. It is also lovely as something to take into a doctor’s office or something like that!
I recently went to BJs and bought a package of bananas. My mistake.
Too many bananas for two people. They quickly turned black and I just knew I had to give this recipe another go!
This cake is incredibly simple to make. It is literally a matter of mixing everything in one big bowl and popping it in the oven.
As much as I loved the moistness of the muffins, I love that this cake is dense (technically it isn’t a cake, it’s banana bread!).
It is so thick and delicious and a great addition to your morning coffee.
Don’t be shy, dip it in! Because it’s a little denser than the muffins, it won’t fall apart!
It is definitely the perfect balance of sweetness, while not totally tasting like a dessert!
I poured half of the batter into the pan, then a layer of Nutella, and then the rest of the batter.
The nutella rose to the top which was pretty cool. It was like a little surprise pocket inside the cake!
I still drizzled more over the top because you can never have enough Nutella, right?!

Banana Nutella Bundt Cake
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 4 medium overly ripened bananas
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup Nutella divided
- 1/2 cup pecans optional
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray bundt cake pan with cooking spray
- In large bowl, whisk together banana, sugar, brown sugar. Beat in egg, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Slowly whisk in the flour, baking soda and baking powder, until there are no lumps. Fold in pecans.
- Fill pan with half of the batter. Add 2/3 of the Nutella, trying not to let it come in contact with the pan (so just let it float in the middle of the batter). Add the rest of the batter on top, covering all the Nutella
- Bake for around 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (it'll be golden brown).
- Allow to cool, flip onto a dish. Take 1/3 cup of Nutella and microwave it for 30 seconds. Place in a piping bag or a Ziplock with with a small bit of the corner cut off. Drizzle to your heart's content! Dust with powdered sugar and serve!

Yummy!!!!! I love banana bread so much. I think I would substitute walnuts instead because my kids love walnuts. Que Rico! I love to see new recipes coming out on this site.
Yesss, I love adding walnuts, too! Hope your kids enjoy it 🙂 Thanks!!
This cake looks super delicious!! My family loves Nutella so I’m going to see if I can whip it up soon. Thank you!
Hope you enjoy it!
Hmm I am a huge fan of bananas but not that huge for Nutella. But maybe since it is in the bread it won’t be as bad? I will have to try to find out!
You can totally try adding chocolate chips instead! They melt so perfectly in the bread and it’s delish!!
Ahhhh this looks soooooooo divine and yummy! I am always looking for tasty but quick treats and eats. I will definitely gives this a try. But do you perhaps have a version/substitute for the egg? I love trying vegan and veg recipes.
I have not tried it with this particular recipe, but in other recipes, I have substituted eggs with unsweetened applesauce! 1 egg=1/4 cup applesauce. I’m pretty sure it would work here, too! 🙂
This is such a creative idea! Especially now, we have the time to try and have some fun in the kitchen, and who doesn’t love Nutella!
Right?! Nutella is the best and paired with banana bread? yummm!
where’s the recipe? All I can see is photos!!!???
