If you like pumpkin chocolate chip bread, I have a feeling you will love pumpkin Nutella bread. After all, who doesn’t like Nutella? Sure, pumpkin typically reminds me of the fall, but quite frankly anytime’s a good time for Nutella. Right?
Pumpkin Nutella Bread
Makes 2 8×4 loaves
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ tablespoon cinnamon
1 ½ teaspoons nutmeg
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup canola oil
1/3 cup water
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon hazelnut extract
8 tablespoons Nutella (4 tablespoons per loaf)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 8×4 loaf pans with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, water, pumpkin, eggs, and extracts. Whisk until smooth and combined.
Slowly stir in the flour mixture. Mix until ingredients are combined.
Pour the batter into the loaf pans, making sure batter is evenly divided. Drop 2 heaping tablespoons of Nutella onto each loaf pan. Swirl the Nutella into the pumpkin batter with a knife. Place the loaf pans onto a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Place the loaf pans on a wire rack. Cool for 15 minutes in the pan and then carefully remove the loaves. Cool completely before slicing.
