No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour and mix stirring in Nutella. More or less Nutella can be used and small adjustments to cooking times may need to be made. This amount of Nutella makes the bread darker and and gives the bread the aroma and slight taste of Nutella. Pour mixture into a buttered 4×8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour 15minutes (done when a fork can be pressed down through middle and no batter substance sticks to the fork. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
