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

- Cream the butter together with the sugar, and then break in the eggs and mix well.

- 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.
