Sometimes I think you shouldn't have to bake batter.
Batter is always good. Always sweet, always gooey, always finger lickin' good. Yet I can't tell you how many times my quick breads have turned out plain Jane, nothin' stands out, run of the mill because they weren't very sweet. Batter, oh wow. Bread. Uh, wow, you really tried too hard on this one, didn't you.
Nutella Swirled Hot Chocolate Banana Bread
1/4 cup +1 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp. milk
2 cups flour
1/2 cup hot chocolate mix
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dark cocoa powder*
1/4-1/2 cup Nutella
Beat butter and applesauce with the sugar. Add bananas, milk, and egg. Stir in flour, hot chocolate, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Pour into greased loaf pan and swirl in Nutella. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
*This was mainly to give it color, because I thought the batter was too light. Use more if you are using regular cocoa.
Let sit overnight!!! This gives the Nutella a chance to make the top of the bread all soft and gooey. If you do a better job than I of swirling it throughout the bread, your bread will be even softer.
