Banana Snack Cake with Nutella Frosting

Here we go with the Nutella again!  Looks like Nutella is kind of a theme this week with my recipes, huh?  This time I created a tender-crumbed Banana Snack Cake with Nutella “Frosting.”  The cake itself is simple, and it’s delicious enough to eat on its own for snacking.  Nutella is optional, but a good dollop scooped on top is kind of a good idea if you enjoy the stuff.  It makes for a nice after-school snack.

Chocolate + Banana is a very good idea.

I shared this recipe on Parade Magazine‘s food blog.  The recipe can be found > HERE.

Other snack cakes on the blogs that look mighty good:

    I love that big blob of Nutella! And one can never have too many banana bread recipes!

    Oh, this looks so moist and delicious! I need to make this next time I have over-ripe bananas. That’s so cute your son has a RecipeBoy blog to follow in your footsteps!

    It is officially the Year of Nutella! It does go brilliantly with banana, though.

    I have nothing against Nutella but I think that banana cake would be delicious on its own without it!

    I like that this is a snack cake as opposed to a regular cake. That means I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    Can you tell me about the table runner?

      It’s just a pretty, textured placemat. Not sure where I got it!

    Too bad I’ve already got the blueberry-raspberry muffin batter mixed up (ok, and no ripe-and-ready bananas either) because I think my kids would rather have this snack cake instead for after school snack.
    Thanks, Lori!
