Banana and Nutella Cake

Banana and Nutella cake – a delicious bake!

Banana and Nutella Cake

My latest bake is a delicious marbled-effect Banana and Nutella cake. It is very easy to make and it smells delicious while baking. Are you addicted to Nutella too?! Banana cake is always a great way to use up bananas that are past their best, and adding Nutella can only make it better, right?

Banana and Nutella Cake

The recipe I based this on is from the slow cooker page I follow on Facebook, called Slow cooked wonders. I thought I’d tried this one in the oven rather than the slow cooker though and see what happened. As you can see, it turned out very well. If you are making in this slow cooker it will take around 1.5 hrs on high.

I serve this as a deep cake with no filling or icing but you could also cut it in half and fill with whipped cream and chocolate ganache or Nutella buttercream for an incredibly indulgent treat.

Quick Tip! If you don’t have any ripe bananas but the craving for Nutella and banana cake has hit, bake them for 10-15 minutes, turning once, and you’ll have soft bananas ready for baking!

Banana and Nutella Cake
Ingredients
  • 115 g unsalted butter
  • 170 g caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 300 g plain flour or use self-raising flour plus 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 5-6 teaspoons Nutella
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan).

  2. Cream the butter together with the sugar, and then break in the eggs and mix well.
  3. Stir in the bananas.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir till well combined but don't over mix.
  5. Put the mixture in a greased cake tin. I used a deep 8 inch tin.
  6. Drop in the spoons of Nutella and use a knife to marble it in the cake batter.
  7. Bake for around 45-50 mins or until a skewer comes away clean. If it browns too much on top, cover the cake with foil for the last ten minutes.

Could I make this in the Slow Cooker? I usually find that cakes are baked in my slow cooker in about 2 hours on High, should I give it a try? Thanks xx

Your cake looks gorgeous – I have a jar of Nutella waiting to be opened and this recipe would fit the bill. Great banana tip too.

I’m just about to bake this and wanted to double check that it’s definitely plain flour like you’ve listed in the ingredients?! Just thought that cakes usually use self-raising flour, but I’m definitely not the most experienced baker 😉

I’ve probably left it too late for you to get back to me, but worth a try! 🙂

Ooooooh wait I think I get it now, it’s 300g plain flour plus 2tsp baking powder, OR 300g self-raising flour plus 1 tsp baking powder (not as well as the 2tsp!) I’m so silly, sorry 🙁

Just to let you know that this was well-received at work and at home, thanks so much again 🙂

If I do this in the slow cooker do you put it in a cake tin first or cook it straight in the ceramic dish ?

I don’t have a deep 8-inch pan to bake this cake in; what could I use instead?

I’m wanting to make this cake for
My granny’s 94th birthday as I’ve previously done the Lemon and Victoria tradional cake. I’m wanting to make this special so would like to add something. Do you recommend any filling for the centre if I cut it in half? Also anything on the top of does it look good enough with the marble effect?
