Make the banana and chocolate bread
Before you add the Nutella, you can heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds or so to make it a bit runnier and easier to spoon.
Pour half the banana batter into the bottom of the loaf tin. Add three tbsp of Nutella on top of the batter. Using a skewer or knife, swirl the Nutella through the batter. Pour the rest of the batter over the top, then add three more tbsp of Nutella and swirl it through.
Bake the banana and chocolate loaf
Bake the you loaf in your preheated oven for around 50 minutes. It’s ready when a skewer or sharp knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes, before removing from the tin and leaving on a wire rack to cool completely.
