  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 tablespoons (4 oz.) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Frangelico
  • 1/2 cup (3.5 oz.) granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup 3.4 oz. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 ripe bananas sliced
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar optional
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • Butter & Flour Spray


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F Degrees.
  • Place hazelnuts onto a small baking sheet and roast them for 8-10 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.
  • Increase the temperature of the oven to 375 F Degrees.
  • Put eggs, heavy cream, butter, Frangelico, vanilla extract, and sugar into a medium-mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth. (I did by hand, but if you want you can use a mixer.)
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Gently, whisk the dry ingredients in to the wet ingredients, until combined and there are no lumps remaining.
  • Fill a piping bag with Nutella. Set aside.
  • Spray a 10-inch pie pan with butter and flour spray.
  • Arrange half of the sliced bananas, in a single layer, in to the pie pan. Pour half of the batter over the bananas.
  • Pipe the Nutella all over the batter (for more, see the video).
  • Pour the rest of the batter over the Nutella, making sure that it is all covered.
  • Arrange rest of the bananas on top, and sprinkle it generously with roasted hazelnuts.
  • Using a rubber spatula, smooth the surface of the batter.
  • Bake it for 30-35 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the custard is firm.
  • Allow it to cool in room temperature, for at least 30 minutes.
  • When cooled, if you’d like, dust it with cocoa powder and powdered sugar.
  • Serve immediately.
