Pumpkin Nutella Bread

Jump to Recipe

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.

  1. I made this over the weekend and it’s delicious! I made the two full-size loaves and, although I’m embarrassed to admit it, my husband and I already polished off one of them. Oh, well…it’s just that good!

  2. Made this last night and I don’t know that my house has EVER smelled as good! I doubled the recipe and made 2 large loaves, they turned out perfectly. Had some pumpkin left so made another batch; ran short on flour so added some quick oats. Made this batch into muffins and they are fantastic, too. Brought some to work and they disappeared very quickly.

  3. YUM. I’ve been on vacation and am finally catching up on blogs—this looks awesome and just might get made this weekend! I don’t have mini loaves–would this be 1 big or 2 big? Also is the nutella flavor very strong? I get disappointed when I use nutella in baking and you can’t taste it!

    1. If you want an overkill of Nutella, swirl in extra:) It is pretty strong though. You can make 2 8 by 4 loaves with this recipe. I hope you like it!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this! I have been wanting pumpkin bread for almost three years now ever since we moved from LA…but no one I know had a good recipe. Now thanks to you I have a fantastic recipe that includes yummy nutella!!!! I can’t wait to make some, might add it to my “to do” list for this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I bought a bottle at Whole Foods. If you can’t find it, just leave it out. It will still be good without it!

    2. thanks for your quick reply! you were absolutely right! i made the bread last night and got rave reviews from coworkers. out of curiousity, how does the hazlenut change the flavor? just nuttier?

  5. Just found your website and can’t wait to try this recipe out! My husband will love it – pumpkin and nutella are two of his favorites! Thanks!

  6. Great Recipe! I Love all things Pumpkin, and all things Nutella, so this was a match made in heaven!
    I made it last night, but instead, did Muffins (adjusting the bake time to 18 mins) Turns out, this recipe makes 18 muffins, so I decided to also try a few replacing the Nutella with cream cheese, and another few with peanut butter. Both were delicious alternatives. !

  7. I marked this recipe down last year but had been too busy to bake much of anything. I finally got the chance to make it today. Fantastic! Thank you!

  8. I love this recipe so much!!! I have made these mini loaves so often as gifts over the past year and everyone absolutely loves them. Only thing is, I use way more nutella on top than you do. Haha!! I love the little crunch. It’s a perfect compliment to the pumpkin bread. Also, when I want to make a full size loaf, I dump the batter (all of it) into an 8×4 loaf pan (or a 9×4 if I want a longer loaf) and bake it for an hour or so (until toothpick comes out clean but don’t stick it into the nutella or it will never come out clean). Perfect! I just had to let you know how much I love this bread =)

  9. Does this recipe make 2 or 4 mini loaves? The recipe says to prepare 4 loaf pans but the part under the recipe says it makes 2 mini loaves.

  10. This bread is phenomenal! I took it to school with me and my fellow teachers devoured it. That was in the fall and I still dream about this bread! I loved it so much, I re-posted it on my own blog! Thanks!

  11. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I made a batch this afternoon (two nutella mini-loaves, two plain pumpkin) and they are both delicious. I particularly love the soft crumb they have. I substituted 1/2 cup brown sugar for 1/2 white sugar — I have quite the weakness for brown sugar. It was the perfect treat for the first really cool almost-fall day. Thanks again!

  12. I am so excited to make this!! Trouble is, I only have two 9×4 loaf pans. Will the recipe make one of those? If i split it between the two, will they be long and small? Or should I double the recipe to get two full-sized loaves? (clearly, I a by-the-recipe kinda girl!!)

    Thanks!

  13. Hi!

    Can you use vegetable oil instead of canola oil? And, by pumpkin you mean canned pumpkin puree, correct?

    Can’t wait to try it out this weekend!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Just made it! Fantastic! My husband and I are not big fans of pumpkin, and have already devoured one of mini loaves. So moist, so good! The only thing I did not add was hazlenut extract since I looked for it everywhere to no avail. Thank you for the great recipe! You may have converted me to a pumpkin lover ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. This recipe has become a staple at our home and relatives are always asking for it at get-togethers. Even those who don’t like pumpkin love this bread. It’s so moist and easy to make!
