nutella makes everything better…

…including banana bread! well, i’m assuming it will – waiting until tomorrow to give it a try. i don’t know why this never occurred to me before, but that’s what pinterest is for! i saw a photo of this bread and immediately had to give it a try. i decided to forgo the marble effect and just mixed in the nutella with all of the batter. it was amazing how the nutella changed the consistency of the batter – it had the usual banana bread consistency, sort of lumpy and  wet, and the nutella transformed it into an almost whipped, thick batter that would rise up the length of the beaters and puff out. that translated to a gorgeous loaf that rose a good inch above the top of the pan, with a beautiful split top. we’ll see tomorrow if it tastes as good as it looks!

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
