New Discovery: Banana Bread + Nutella = Fantastic

It's Friday and that means you should think about baking something yummy for the weekend.
You know I'm right.
So bake up a batch of the World's Best Banana Bread and spread it with this:

If you don't know Nutella, it is time for you to get acquainted.  
I first met Nutella in France when I was 18.  It was love at first bite.
Is it any wonder the French don't like peanut butter? 
I mean, who would, when you could have Nutella instead?
We Americans have wised up and you can find Nutella anywhere now: the grocery store, Target and probably even Walmart.  (can't verify this since Walmarts here are an abomination.  but I have heard that is not the case in other parts of the country)
We had Nutella left over from camping this weekend.  (it will take your s'mores to a whole new level)
And since I'm pregnant, and I like to make myself as miserable as possible at my ever more frequent doctor visits,  I decided to try out some Nutella on the banana bread I made this morning.

Oh sweet mama it is good!
Give it a try.
You'll thank me.

Right now my kitchen smells divine--all yeasty. I am trying out the bread from this book and I'll let you know how it turns out.  
I am really hoping it is wonderful so that we can have fresh bread around here all the time.
We love really good fresh bread.  
Because we're bread snobs--or connoisseurs--depends on how you look at it.
And also because, I really need those extra calories.

Have a wonderful weekend.  
I hope it involves fresh baked something--even if that means donuts from the donut shop
Love from,

I'm not sure about Walmart, but Costco has Nutella....two large jars shrink wrapped together. The price is excellent and we never run out :)

I just bought Nutella a few weeks ago. Heaven! I just realized that I wasn't a follower on this blog. I was looking for your post on blogger and was so confused since I've been reading forever. Then I realized I was always just clicking on it from FB. Random thought. Just fessing up to my mindless ways. Happy weekend!

Last week's newspaper coupons had one in there for $1 off Nutella!!
Cost Plus World Market also carries it but I think Target has the best price and the BIG jar is definitely the more economical!!
Love it...yummmm

Isn't nutella amazing! We like to make crepes and put nutella and ice cream on them. Amazing!

I just made the banana bread, I have to agree it is the Worlds Best Banana Bread, Thanks for sharing. This is now the only banana bread I will ever make. Forgot to get the nutella though, not that I need it anyway. :)

I guess I have to be the poop head and say that I am NOT a nutella lover. So sad to say but some times the truth stinks!
