Pecan Banana and Nutella Swirl Slices

Posted 2015-09-02 by finyfollow

Recently I bought my first jar of Nutella in many years, and it is a large jar, the contents of which I am slowly using in recipes!

I am now doing recipes with Nutella and discovering how well this product goes with many different foods, both sweet and savoury.

This is baked in a square pan and cut into slices and is delicious and moist, and combines the tastes of banana and chocolate with the added crunch of pecan nuts.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: approx. 20 slices

1 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
60 g unsalted butter
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 large egg
½ tsp vanilla
1/3 cup buttermilk
3 ripe bananas, mashed
¼ cup Nutella
¼ cup pecan halves, toasted

  • Preheat the oven to 165° fan forced, and put baking paper or spray a 20 x 20 cm tin with oil.

  • Bake or toast the pecans till they start to brown -about 5 - 10 minutes.
  • Break them in half when cooled

  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  • Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined.

  • Add the buttermilk, and dry ingredients alternately on a low speed, and starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Beat only only until it is mixed and not longer.

  • Add the mashed banana until combined.

  • Put the batter onto your prepared cake tin.

  • Add the Nutella, and swirl this into the batter using figure eight movements with a fork.

  • Sprinkle the toasted half pecan nuts on the top, and press lightly into the dough.

  • Bake in the oven for about 35 minutes or till a skewer comes out fairly clean.

  • Let it cool a bit before cutting it into bars.

  • Serve.

  • Keep the balance in the fridge and bring out to room temperature before re-serving.

  • Also nice with a dollop of cream or ice cream.
