Delicious chocolate hazelnut bread is made with Nutella spread, giving it an unbelievable flavor and texture. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a mid-day snack, this amazing bread will make every day a little bit sweeter.
I recently found multiple jars of Nutella in my pantry. My mom has been getting them on sale and bringing them to me whenever she sees me. While I like Nutella I can only eat so much.
That means I’ve been looking for things to bake with Nutella in them. I’ve made several types of muffins with them so I wanted to make something different.
I found several different recipes and decided to make the Easy Nutella Bread first. While the basic recipe sounded decent I didn’t like that there wasn’t any butter or oil in it and there weren’t any eggs.
I played around with the recipe and came up with one that I thought would work. I added in both the butter and the egg that I wanted in my Nutella Bread.
- all purpose flour
- baking powder (make sure it’s fresh and not expired)
- butter (I used salted but you can use unsalted)
- granulated sugar
- milk (whole milk works best)
- Nutella (or another hazelnut chocolate spread)
The batter came together quickly and was the consistency I was looking for. I poured it into the prepared pan and let it bake.
I pulled it out of the oven when the top and sides were totally cooked through and the middle was just about done. It will continue cooking for a few more minutes and I didn’t want it to be dry so I tend to take it out a few minutes early.
What is Nutella?
Nutella is a chocolate hazelnut spread. It is sweet and mostly tastes like chocolate but it does have a subtle flavor from the hazelnuts.
Can I bake these as muffins?
I am sure that you can but I have not tried it. If you are attempting it, I would put the batter into muffin cups and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick.
Can I add anything to the bread?
You can add 3/4 cup of chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the batter. Then bake as directed.
Once the bread has cooled you can leave it as is or you can add a glaze to the top of it. I chose to leave my bread alone as I thought it was already sweet enough but a dark chocolate glaze or a chocolate buttercream would be delicious on top of the bread.
You can enjoy your bread plain or put a spread on it. It’s yummy with butter or strawberry jam on it. You can also add a smear of Nutella on a slice to give it more of that rich, chocolate hazelnut flavor.

The bread has a light chocolate flavor. I didn’t get much of the hazelnut flavor so next time I may substitute a half cup of hazelnut flour for a half cup of all purpose flour.
To store the bread cover it or put it in an air tight container for up to 4 days. You can also wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in a freeze bag to freeze it for up to 3 months.
