Hazelnut Swirl Nutella Bread Recipe

Homemade Nutella bread or cake is a sweet bread made with hazelnut spread swirled inside the batter and baked in a loaf pan for dessert. You can make muffins with this same mix quicker with the same wonderfully sweet flavors too.

We share with you How to Roast Hazelnuts in the oven if you want to go all the way out from scratch. Of course you can buy them already like this usually canned at the store to save time too. They are already ground into a peanut butter like spread in a jar to be used inside but fresh on top is a nice touch too.

If you have a stand mixer to mix it all together smoothly that works great. Good old fashioned elbow grease works too though. This is a soft bread but NO active dry yeast is necessary which makes this Nutella bread recipe really simple to bake! Most similar to our moist pumpkin bread but with more of a chocolate flavor.

Nutella Banana Bread

To integrate this fruit into the loaf you can choose two ways. Either swap out mashed banana for the same amount of butter instead. OR you can follow our Banana Nutella Muffins and make in a muffin tin for grab and go breakfasts or bake in a loaf pan for the temp. and timing listed below.

Unlike sandwich style bread this one is denser and more like sweet bread. NO dough hook or long time for bread to rise in a warm spot in your kitchen necessary this go around. Just mix dry items in a bowl, wet in another and combine both.

  • 2 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Baking powder
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/2 c butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • Vanilla
  • 2/3 c milk
  • Nutella
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/4 c hazelnuts chopped

If you buy a large batch of nuts you might want to make something else as well. We have made Crispy Hazelnut Cookies during the holidays crushing them to very fine so they are thin and wonderful.

If you want to bake something else with the same nuts we have Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies to use with those as well. Now the streusel topping listed below is optional. I don’t always add it but if you are a texture person it adds a bit of crunch. It’s pretty this way too. Here’s step by step what we do;

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl and set it to the side. In another bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until it is light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix. Add the vanilla and mix.
  • Take ½ of the flour mix and add to the batter and combine. Add ½ of the milk and combine. Repeat until both the flour and milk have been incorporated into the batter and everything is thoroughly mixed.
  • In a different small bowl mix together the nutella, cocoa powder, hazelnuts and warm water and stir to combine. Divide the flour/sugar batter evenly between 2 bowls and into one, add the nutella/chocolate mix and stir to have one vanilla batter and one chocolate.
  • Using a cookie scoop, place alternating scoops of chocolate and vanilla batter into a 9” x 5” baking pan that has been well greased. Using a knife, draw back and forth through the dough lengthwise to swirl the doughs together.
  • Place in the oven and bake the bread for 40 minutes or 50 if you aren’t adding the topping.

Remove and add streusel topping with a piece of foil on the top to prevent the streusel from burning, bake another 10 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Allow to rest in the pan for about 5 minutes, before removing and allowing to cool completely on a rack. Serve with Chocolate Gravy.

If you do have leftovers you will want to ONLY slice what you will eat right then and there. Leave the rest whole and let it cool completely on a rack. Then wrap plastic wrap tightly all the way around and slide it inside a freezer bag free from air. Keep on the countertop for up to 3 days. In the fridge will last longer but dry it out a bit more.

Nutella Muffins

Same way to save these too. Baking of course will take less time this way. You’re talking 18-20 minutes or until the top springs back when touched gently vs. an hour or so in a loaf pan on a baking sheet in the oven.

Streusel Topping

Instructions

  • Topping is optional – Combine the 2 Tbsp flour, 2 Tbsp brown sugar and salt in a small bowl. Cut the butter into the mixture using a fork or your hands until the mixture is crumbly. Add the hazelnuts and set aside to be used as the topping later on.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl and set it to the side. In another bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until it is light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix. Add the vanilla and mix.
  • Take ½ of the flour mix and add to the batter and combine. Add ½ of the milk and combine. Repeat until both the flour and milk have been incorporated into the batter and everything is thoroughly mixed.
  • In a different small bowl mix together the nutella, cocoa powder, hazelnuts and warm water and stir to combine. Divide the flour/sugar batter evenly between 2 bowls and into one, add the nutella/chocolate mix and stir to have one vanilla batter and one chocolate.
  • Using a cookie scoop, place alternating scoops of chocolate and vanilla batter into a 9” x 5” baking pan that has been well greased. Using a knife, draw back and forth through the dough lengthwise to swirl the doughs together.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Remove and add streusel topping (if you want to add that) with a piece of foil on the top to prevent the streusel from burning, bake another 10 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Allow to rest in the pan for about 5 minutes, before removing and allowing to cool completely on a rack.
