Banana Nutella Cobbler Recipe

    Needless to say, this banana Nutella cobbler is one recipe both of my somewhat picky eaters absolutely love.

    Servings: 9


    • unsalted butter, softened: ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon, divided
    • bananas, thinly sliced: 1¼ pound (about 3 cups)
    • Nutella: 1 cup (approximately 1 13-ounce jar)
    • all-purpose flour: 1½ cups
    • baking powder: 1½ teaspoons
    • granulated sugar: 2½ tablespoons
    • salt: ¼ teaspoon
    • low-fat milk: ⅔ cup
    • large egg, lightly blended: 1


    Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and adjust a rack to the center. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9x9 inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the unsalted butter. Set aside.

    Step 2: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix the Nutella with the banana slices. Then add this to the greased baking dish. Set aside.
