Completely decadent and delicious cinnamon-scented pumpkin bread swirled with Nutella is the perfect recipe for a Fall tea-time treat.

Nutella-swirled pumpkin breadGood grief you guys. Are you aware that there are only 65 days left until Christmas? Sixty Five!! I can’t deal. There are only 6 weeks left until the twins turn 8. How the heck did that even happen? Where have the last 8 years gone? One day I’m exhausted and terrified at the thought of raising two babies and 8 years later I’m exhausted and wondering how in the World I managed to raise two babies.

NutellaCan we just all collectively agree to make time go by just a little slower please? I’d like for them to stay little just a small while longer. I asked Aidan what recipe he would most remember me by one day and (thankfully) he said that there are two many to mention. But then he said that my banana bread is probably one of his favourite foods to eat. And then of course he promptly asked me to bake a loaf again and asked if I could make it “the Nutella one” I once made. Aidan, like pretty much every other human on Earth, is obsessed with Nutella. He could eat it by the spoonful (and often do).

Nutella-swirled pumpkin breadI once made a banana bread swirled with Nutella (similar to this peanut butter version) but decided to change things up a little and make a pumpkin version. What a damn good idea pumpkin bread was. And speaking of all things pumpkin: my very clever friend Mary Ann from The Beach House Kitchen made the most incredible Pumpkin roll on her gorgeous blog and you guys. Do yourself a favour and go check it out. Mary Ann’s blog is filled with the most drool-worthy recipes and her photos are just dreamy.

Nutella-swirled pumpkin breadAnd since I’m so jealous of Americans at this time of year, I’ll pretend I’m also preparing for Halloween and enjoying all things Fall/Autumn by eating generous slices of this incredibly lush pumpkin bread with its Nutella swirls. Cup of tea: Mandatory.

    Everybody does pumpkin with cream cheese but YOU took it further and very well! I love Nutella and I can imagine enjoying this so much more than with plain cream cheese filling 🙂 Great recipe!

    What a great collaboration!! I love following both of you guys!! This bread looks so incredibly delicious I just want a bite. I ask my kids what they’ll want me to make when they come home from college. Love hearing the answers, they change all of the time!! xoxo

      Thanks Rebecca! Yeah, it’s so great to ask those questions. I keep note of what they love all the time so I can remember to make those dishes for them when they’re all big and grown up.

    Nutella swirled in pumpkin bread? Yes please! I need this in my life. I find pumpkin always tastes better when it is accompanied by chocolate!
