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!

  • 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.

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.


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


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.


Do you mean 350 Fahrenheit or 180 Celsius
