Banana and Nutella Cake

Banana and Nutella Cake

Banana and Nutella cake – a delicious bake swirled with Nutella! Use your store-cupboard ingredients and make this simple yet delicious cake.

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.

The marbled Nutella swirls on top are one of my favourite things about this cake. It looks great even served naked!!

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?

I know Nutella doesn’t ever last long in my house, it is a real favourite here.

Can You Make this Cake in a Slow Cooker?

Yes you can. If you are making in this slow cooker it will take around 1.5 hrs on high.

How to Serve This Banana and Nutella Cake

I serve this as a deep cake with no filling or icing, it is delicious that way.

You could also cut it in half and fill with whipped cream and chocolate ganache or cover it in Nutella buttercream for an incredibly indulgent treat.

I love to see the marbled top so serve mine just as it is!

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!

Get the recipe for this yummy cake below. It is very popular indeed on Pinterest right now, so make sure you give it a try!

  • 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


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan).
  • Cream the butter together with the sugar, and then break in the eggs and mix well.
  • Stir in the bananas.
  • Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir till well combined but don't over mix.
  • Put the mixture in a greased cake tin. I used a deep 8 inch tin.
  • Drop in the spoons of Nutella and use a knife to marble it in the cake batter.
  • 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.

Can’t you come here and bake me a fresh cake?!

Ben Taylor

Tin foil I def have?!

That looks yummy, I love nutella and banana. Thanks for linking up to Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again. Happy Easter, have a great weekend!


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

Oh my, you should smell my house right now, ive just taken this out of the oven…..yummers….


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 NEED this 🙂


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?


How long does this cake keep for? I need to make a cake five days in advance of being eaten.


Just tried this and it was delicious! Bonus, I generally always have all the ingredients to hand. 🙂 Thanks.

Thank you for the recipe! Baked the cake yesterday for my Sip and Stitch group, and it was well appreciated!


Thank you so much for this amazing receipe. Im a new baker and this came out to be soo good.
Can you suggest me how am I suppose to store this cake. Can i keep it over the counter for 2-3 days?


Made it in a square tin to cut into bars for kids lunch box’s. Was really yummy! Ended up in husbands lunch box too!


Super easy and amazing recipe


Do you mean 350 Fahrenheit or 180 Celsius

AWESOME! Two of my favorite ingredients all in one. So happy to have found your blog Lucy, I was really looking for a recipe that would help me get more from my Nutella because every time I buy one the next thing I know all my family members have already devoured it leaving me only the bottle. Can’t wait to see your other recipes. More power and God Bless.


Please give the conversion from metric to U.S. measurements. I’d love to make this!

I just made this cake (translating grams to oz.) and this turned out perfect. Beautiful in two small bundt cakes. Delicious. Easy to make, what more can you ask for in a recipe? This will be a favorite, and I will toss my head and say, when complimented, “oh, it’s a recipe from an English friend”. Thank you.


I am going to try this one tonight
