Pumpkin Nutella Bread

Pumpkin Nutella Bread

Fall is in the air and that means football and pumpkin baking for us. On Saturday afternoon, Josh turned on the football games and I started baking. To kick off football and pumpkin season, I made pumpkin Nutella bread. If you like pumpkin chocolate chip bread, I have a feeling you will love pumpkin Nutella bread.

I started with a basic pumpkin bread recipe-pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. I love all of those flavors, so I was off to a good start. I divided the batter between four mini loaf pans. I love the mini loaves of bread:) I opened a jar of Nutella and scooped two heaping tablespoons onto each loaf of bread. Using a knife, I swirled the Nutella into the pumpkin batter, creating an orange and chocolaty loaf.

While the loaves were baking we cheered on our favorite football team and enjoyed the smell of pumpkin that was gently warming the house. At half time, I sliced into one of the mini loaves. I loved the contrast the dark Nutella swirl added to the pumpkin spiced bread. I am glad my first taste of pumpkin this fall involved Nutella. What a delightful combination! I can’t wait to make this pumpkin Nutella bread for Halloween-it will be perfect for the holiday.

Add pumpkin Nutella bread to your fall baking list today!

Pumpkin Nutella Bread


1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/3 cup water
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon hazelnut extract
8 tablespoons Nutella (2 tablespoons per mini loaf)


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 4 mini loaf pans with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, water, pumpkin, eggs, and extracts. Whisk until smooth and combined.

4. Slowly stir in the flour mixture. Mix until ingredients are combined.

5. Pour the batter into the mini 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 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

6. 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.

*Note-You can make regular size loaves. This recipe should make 2 8x4 loaves. Adjust baking time to about 60 minutes.

    I’m loving all the new pumpkin recipes! If there’s anything that can make pumpkin bread even better, it must be nutella :)

  22. Eliana — September 13, 2010 @ 8:28 pm

    You have seriously taken it over the top with this one Maria. As if pumpkin isn’t great by itself you went and added Nutella. GENIUS!!!!

  23. Taylor — September 13, 2010 @ 9:48 pm

    I am SO excited for all of the fall flavors…especially pumpkin! I have never even considered pumpkin and nutella together, but it looks delicious!

  24. Jeanne @JollyTomato — September 13, 2010 @ 9:52 pm

    LOVE this! Although to be honest, it’s hard for me to cook with Nutella because I tend to eat it before it ever makes it into the batter! : ) I made this the “Recipe of the Week” on Jolly Tomato’s recipe page:

  25. Pam @ Cooking world — September 14, 2010 @ 12:25 am

    Pumpkin bread with Nutella, wow, I have to try it. I have not made many things with Nutella before so this is gives me an incentive to make something yummy.

  26. grace — September 14, 2010 @ 2:25 am

    pumpkin is usually a turn-off for me, but the nutella saves the day!

  27. Debby — September 14, 2010 @ 4:24 am

    I’m in love with pumpkins and Nutella ,I’ll try this recipe soon

  28. Caroline @ A Cozy Kitchen — September 14, 2010 @ 7:57 am

  29. Bonnie — September 14, 2010 @ 9:06 am

    This look absolutely wonderful! Thank you for posting this! I am so mad I can’t find pumpkin anywhere, but when I do I will stock up and this will be at the top of the list!

  30. Jen @ How To: Simplify — September 14, 2010 @ 9:55 am

    I LOVE this. Love, love, love this. Have I mentioned how much I love this recipe? Oh my goodness…pumpkin and Nutella? You have got to be kidding me. I love this.

    • twopeas replied: — September 14th, 2010 @ 2:38 pm

      Thanks Jen:)

  31. ErinsFoodFiles — September 14, 2010 @ 10:14 am

    Looks divine! I tried a nutella swirl poundcake once, it tasted good, but the nutella sunk to the bottom! It ended up with poundcake on top, and a nutella-flavored brownie-constitency on the bottom.

  32. Juliana — September 14, 2010 @ 11:38 am

    Great combination…pumpkin and Nutella…will definitely try this one…perfect for the season, not to mention that I still have a whole jar of Nutella from Costco :-)

  33. Lezly — September 14, 2010 @ 1:08 pm

    Anything pumpkin or nutella is a dead winner for me!

  34. stephchows — September 14, 2010 @ 1:12 pm

    oo count me in for this one! and mini anything is always so much better than a full size version :)

  35. megan — September 14, 2010 @ 2:12 pm

    Looks perfect to me. Love both pumpkin and Nutella!

  36. kirbie — September 14, 2010 @ 3:24 pm

    What a great idea. I’m always looking for nutella recipes and I love pumpkin bread. The nutella swirl sounds delicious. I’m definitely going to try this out!

  37. Mags — September 14, 2010 @ 6:33 pm

    You could add Nutella to brussels sprouts and I’d be licking it off the plate. Great recipe and it looks delicious.

  38. cookiepie — September 14, 2010 @ 7:07 pm

    Two of my all-time favorites: pumpkin and Nutella — yum!!! Yay fall!

  39. Cookin' Canuck — September 14, 2010 @ 8:37 pm

    This is calling my name! Nutella and pumpkin – what a tempting bread.

  40. Karen — September 15, 2010 @ 3:15 am
