Mini banana breads with Nutella®
Santa’s elves love these!
Mini Banana Breads are a favourite for Santa’s elves. They’re cute, bite-sized and go perfectly with a thin layer of NUTELLA® hazelnut spread. It’s impossible not to have a big smile on your face when you pop one of these little breads into your mouth.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 6-cup (3 x 1 1/2-inch) mini-loaf tin or silicone mold.
Beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy.
Smash banana using a fork.
Stir in bananas and eggs.
In separate bowl, sift together flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt; stir into banana mixture until combined.
Pour batter evenly into mini-loaf tin.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool slightly. Unmold and transfer to rack; let cool completely.
Split each loaf in half lengthwise. Spread each bottom half with 1 tbsp Nutella® hazelnut spread; cap with tops. Dust with confectioners’ sugar; pipe about 1 tsp Nutella® hazelnut spread down along center of each loaf.
Tip: If the banana bread results are not flat on both sides, even up the surface by removing a thin slice with a knife.
