Chunky Double Banana Muffin with a Twist of Nutella

Anyone doesn't like Nutella?  Anyone?  lol..I think most people do like Nutella.  Ok, who loves Nutella & Bananas together?  oh yeah, baby! That's the ultimate combination..yum yum.

I've a big bottle of Nutella.  Although I like nutella, I don't want to have bread with nutella every other day for breakfast. So what  am I gonna do with this big bottle before it expires?  Muffins, of course!  Yup, been looking for muffin or cupcake recipe with nutella in it but couldn't find any.  Since I've this '750 Best Muffin Recipe' cookbook which I almost forgot that I have it, looked through for a good recipe that goes well with nutella.  Found it! It's Banana Muffin! yay. So, made this wonderfully moist and soft chunky banana muffin and added in a teaspoonful of nutella in the center.  Oh, just superb!  You must give this a try.  Adults and kids alike will definitely fall in love with this.

Can you see the nutella swirl in the center of the cake?
