Banana and Nutella Layer Cake

A note from Joelle...
So, what do you do when you have a HUGE jar of Nutella and a bunch of overripe bananas? Make a banana and Nutella layer cake of course!
I took inspiration from Rose of The Londoner's 'Banana and Nutella Swirl Muffins'


Self raising flour
4 medium eggs
Baking powder
Greaseproof/baking paper
Butter (melted)
Caster sugar
Beat the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy. Then add the melted butter and stir.
Make your overripe bananas feel loved! Mash them up into a mushy mess ( you can add your Nutella here if you like - or some vanilla extract).
Slowly fold in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon bit by bit in a figure of 8 motion, in order to trap in the air.
Stir in the the mushy banana first and then the Nutella (as much as you like!). It doesn't matter if it looks ugly - it tastes and smells great! You can do the marbling pattern like this, or just stir it all together to make it all chocolatey brown.

Carefully pour the first batch into the lined and greased cake tin and place in the oven for 25 minutes.

Once cooled, assemble the layers with Nutella (or cream, fruit, nuts, etc. in the middle)

Layer two!
