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)
  • salt
  • butter (I used salted but you can use unsalted)
  • granulated sugar
  • egg
  • 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.

More Nutella Recipes:

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.
