A Nutella, Double Chocolate & Banana Tart for the Annual World Nutella Day. Be still my heart! Has there ever been a happier, more delicious convergence of ingredients? I think not, though perhaps adding a little peanut butter into the mix would have made it even more enticing… if that is possible. That’s right, today February 5th is World Nutella Day. This celebration of all things Nutella was started in 2007 by Sara at Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle at Bleeding Espresso as a day to celebrate, get creative with and most importantly, to EAT Nutella.
I absolutely love Nutella. Just spreading it on toast is a joy, not to mention just eating it straight out of the jar. Yup, I might do that from time to time. I participated in World Nutella Day last year with my Nutella & Banana filled Peanut Butter Ebelskivers. ( See..I got the peanut butter in there, but alas no chocolate. I will have to work on this idea for next year…)
This year I present a Nutella, Double Chocolate Banana Tart. This recipe comes from Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table, which I was lucky enough to receive for Christmas. There are so many fantastic recipes in this book, but this tart caught my eye right away.
The tart looks pretty impressive huh? But it was really surprisingly easy to make and can be done in stages if you’re pressed for time on the day you wish to serve it. It has a chocolate shortbread base, which can be made ahead of time. The dough can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to one month. Once you’ve baked the base, you spread a layer of Nutella over the bottom of the tart shell and then chill it for about 1 hour. While it is chilling, you caramelize a banana and let it cool to room temperature. You then layer the caramelized bananas over the Nutella. But wait, you’re not done yet. Then you pour a rich bittersweet chocolate ganache over the caramelized bananas. The ganache can be made ahead of time as well. It can be refrigerated for up to 2 days or frozen for up to 2 months. You just need to pop it into the microwave to melt it a bit when you’re ready to assemble your tart.
Once you’ve added the ganache, you chill the tart once again for 30 – 60 minutes, or until you’re ready to serve it. At that point, you finish it off by topping it with freshly cut banana slices.
How does it taste? Unbelievably decadent. You should plan on eating this tart up on the day you make it. I don’t think you’ll have a problem there, it is soooo delicious! If by some bizarre set of circumstances the entire tart is not gobbled up, it will still be fine the next day, except the bananas won’t look as pretty.
Nutella, Double Chocolate & Banana Tart
recipe from : Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table
For Chocolate Shortbread Dough
- 1 1/4 Cups All-purpose Flour
- 1/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 Cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 9 Tablespoons very cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 Large egg yolk
For the Caramelized Bananas
- 1 ripe but firm banana
- Fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
For the Bittersweet Ganache
- 1/2 lb. bittersweet chocolate, very finely chopped
- 1 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
- 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into four pieces, at room temperature
For the Banana Topping
- 1/2 Cup Apricot jam, strained
- 2-3 ripe but firm bananas
- Fresh lemon juice
2/3 Cup Nutella
For the Chocolate Shortbread Dough
Put the flour, confectioners’ sugar, and salt into a food processor and pulse a couple of times to combine. Scatter the pieces of butter over the dry ingredients and pulse until the butter is cut in coarsely. Stir the yolk, just to break it up, and add it a little at a time, pulsing after each addition. When the egg is in, process in long pulses- about 10 seconds each – until the dough which will look granular soon after the egg is added, forms clumps and curds.
Turn the dough out onto a work surface and very lightly knead it just to incorporate any dry ingredients that might have escaped mixing.
Butter a 9 – 9 1/2 ” fluted tart pan with a removable bottom (butter the pan even if it’s nonstick)
Press the dough evenly over the bottom and up the sides of the tart pan. Press the crust in so that the pieces cling to one another and knit together when baked, but don’t use a lot of force working lightly will preserve the crust’s shortbread-ish texture. Prick the crust all over and freeze for at least 30 minutes, preferably longer, before baking.
Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter a piece of aluminum foil and press the foil snugly against the crust.
Bake the crust for 25 minutes, then carefully remove the foil. If the crust has puffed, press it down gently with the back of a spoon. Transfer the baking sheet to a cooling rack and allow the crust to cool before you fill it.
Once the crust is completely cooled, spread 2/3 cup of Nutella over the bottom of the baked tart shell and chill the tart for 1 hour.
For the Caramelized Bananas:
Line a plate with parchment paper. Cut the banana into 1/8″ thick slices and toss the slices with lemon juice to keep them from blackening.
Put a large skillet – nonstick – over high heat and toss in the butter. When it melts and starts to bubble, add the bananas, turning them so that they’re coated with butter. Sprinkle the sugar over the bananas and cook, still over high heat, turning, until they’re golden and caramel-coated on both sides. Transfer the bananas to the parchment-lined plate and pat them gently on both sides with paper towels to remove any excess butter. Cool to room temperature. The bananas can be caramelized a couple of hours ahead and kept at room temperature.
To Make the Bittersweet Ganache:
Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl.Bring the cram to a boil in a small saucepan, then pour it over the chocolate. Let the mixture sit for 30 seconds or so, then, with a whisk or spatula, gently stir the chocolate and cream together. Stir gently, and when the ganache is smooth and shiny, stir in the butter, piece by piece. The ganache can be refrigerated for up to 2 days or frozen for up to 2 months; reheat gently in a microwave before proceeding.
Remove the chilled Nutella covered crust from the refrigerator. Arrange the caramelized bananas in an even layer over the bottom of the crust, then pour over the ganache. Hold the tart pan with both hands and rotate it lightly from side to side to encourage the ganache to even out, then slide the tart into the fridge again to set the ganache, 30 – 60 minutes. You can refrigerate the tart until serving time; just be certain to cover it once the chocolate sets.
To make the topping:
Bring the apricot jam to a boil in a small saucepan or in a microwave oven.
Peel the bananas and cut them on the bias into slices that are a scant 1/4 ” thick. Toss them lightly with just the slightest bit of lemon juice – the juice will keep them from blackening, but you don’t want them to be so wet that they dribble on the ganache. Arrange the banana slices in concentric circles over the top of the tart – start at the outer edge and slightly overlap the slices in a circle, then continue building concentric circles, having each circle slightly overlap its neighbour. Brush the bananas with a thin coating of the hot jam, glazing them evenly. Allow the glaze to cool and set.
When you’re ready to serve, remove the sides of the pan and slide the tart off the bottom of the pan and slice.
You had me at Nutella 🙂
Nutella day!?!?! I have never heard of such a wonderful thing, it should be a holiday! LOL I will definitely be trying this recipe, thanks for sharing!
Those look absolutely delicious!
it looks good!!!
That’s what I was thinking as well! I drooled looking over the description and pictures. Then I think I gained weight looking at the recipe.
I guess I’ll save this for when I get back in shape, and… decide I don’t want to anymore.
I agree. Nutella and I’m already reading
What a way to celebrate world nutella day – even if it is clearly a day dedicated to blatant marketing stunts! This tart looks exquisite and decadent – not forgetting that chocolate and banana go together so well!
Thanks so much! Yeah, I know its a bit of a marketing stunt, but a clever one! Not to mention I don’t mind so much since I really do love Nutella and the tart was fun to make.
Congrats on the feature, by the way.
Thanks so much! I was quite shocked and very happy. Couldn’t figure out why I suddenly had so many e-mails, and then I saw the note from WordPress. Wow!
Nutella is so yummy! Great tart!
Thanks! I agree, Nutella is great straight out of the jar.
Oh this tart looks so heavenly! Bananas and Nutella are just such a wonderful combination.
Thanks! Bananas and Nutella are great together!
Just not sure what ISN’T great with Nutella 🙂
Wow!! I love each and every ingredient in that tart. Absolutely gorgeous!!
Thanks so much! That is pretty much what I thought when I came across the recipe.
this is to die for. God bless nutella.. :p
You said it!
This definitely looks like the ultimate pie to me: nutella, double chocolate, banana…what more can one want?
Amazing! What a delicious way to celebrate Nutella Day!
Oh how I long for the days when I could still eat chocolate. (I have developed an allergy) I used to love Nutella. This has me salivating.
I haven’t baked in months and this recipe makes me want to hop back into the kitchen!
This looks like perfection.
That tart is a thing of beauty! I was combining chocolate and bananas myself yesterday (but in a somewhat healthier and much less elegant presentation): http://emmycooks.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/a-healthy-indulgence-whole-grain-banana-cardamom-muffins-with-optional-chocolate-of-course/
Thanks for the awesome recipe!
looks very tasty. I love bananas and nutella… now why didn’t i think of putting the two together? 🙂
oh yes, that tart looks like heaven!
At this point – I wish I could eat the pictures – not to mention how wonderful the actual tart must be 🙂
This cracks me up — I swear, the Freshly Pressed gods love love LOVE Nutella … although this recipe looks pretty darn amazing!

Some say that there are no people who have tried Nutella only once but the people who never tried it before. 🙂 I am one of the latter. The tart looks great!
I have to bake this for my husband ! Nutella and bananas combined together are his favorite thing to eat !
Oh my fucking god, this looks fabulous. *faints*
Oh this looks yummy. Thanks for blogging about Nutella. It made me thing of my uncle. When I was younger my aunt and I were out in Hollywood circa 1990 when were approached by some taste testers. Being a chocolate lover we took the plunge and were given several jars of this yummy chocolate spread to take home. My uncle loved the it and became a big fan of it on his morning toast. I think he would have liked this recipe. RIP Uncle Gerald.
Beautiful tart, beautiful pictures. Love the look of that pie crust.
Can’t wait to try it out! Looks absolutely gorgeous 🙂
Yum! I have a jar and will try this!
I love Nutella on a graham cracker. Okay graham crackersss.

This look absolutely delicious! I’m going to have try it out!
Love Nutella & bananas
World Nutella Day! Brilliant, I can’t believe I missed it. Everyday is nutella day to me. Both treats look amazing and I can’t wait to have an occasion to make this tasty tarte. I think I might change the chocolate top to something peanut butter.
Love the peanut butter idea! Let me know how it goes!
I want!!! I WANT!!!!
nutella day is ❤
awesome recipe you got there! keep it up!
Why aren’t I eating this right now?!
Oh, yes, Nutella day, up there with Easter and Christmas, should definitely be a day off, so everyone can prepare this delicious tart! With a ice-cream scoop on the side, it could be a Nutella sundae! Thank you for sharing!
Awesome! Beautiful pictures. I love that the bananas are embedded in the ganache and on top!
Thanks for your kind words!
This is beautifully delicious! Congrats on being freshly pressed! 😀
Thanks so much! I’m very excited about the pressing!
yummy! i’m not much of a cook but i hear nutella, and i have to check it out. thanks for sharing.
One tart and a medium roast coffee would be amazing.
HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT WORLD NUTELLA DAY???
OMG, this looks great! Reminds me of a Nigella nutella tort I make all the time, it’s a good spin on a classic no flour tort: http://eatingwithsole.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/no-flour-hemp-chocolate-torte/
I will have to remember Feb 5 2012! thanks for the heads up… 364 days and counting.
Always happy to hear of a new way to eat Nutelly, one of the world’s best foods.
YUM! I’m going to have to steal this recipe, it looks and sounds amazing! I love Nutella as well … even just out of the jar. 🙂
I’m drooling. I want to make it for breakfast tomorrow morning!
I would love to eat that nutella tart. It looks so good!I never knew there was a world nutella day! And I love nutella!
this looks AMAZING!!!!!
Everything tastes better with nutella in it or on it..Great pictures..
Thanks so much!
Pls tell me that when you die and go to heaven, this tart will be waiting for you… Yum.
Funny! I’ll have to have a chat with St. Peter and see what can be arranged 🙂
I’m getting hungry just reading this… Thanks!
That has my mouth watering. That is going to be my new experiment this weekend! I’m totally going to make that!
Good luck! Let us know how it goes!
OMG … looks so good … so good …
Wow that looks so yummy. I wish I can taste a slice of it
I will definitely have to try this recipe. I got hooked on Nutella when I joined Girls Swim in high school, when a girl brought Nutella on graham crackers at a swim meet.
I actually spent Nutella day finishing the last scoop of spread that was in my jar at home. 😛

Nutella, Double Chocolate & Banana Tart….. *drools…*
That looks like HEAVEN on a plate…I want some!!
This looks so delicious! Too bad I didn’t know that there is a World Nutella Day! I won’t miss this event next year and I’ll try to concoct my own Nutella recipe. Thanks for sharing this!
Has anyone tried making it? I absolutely love Nutella but, I’m a terrible baker especially if I have to make things from scratch.
I cannot begin to describe how awesome and delicious this looks, way to go. I gotta try this soon, thanks for sharing!!
wow, awesome. like it so much! well done:)
My husband and I have a now-famous argument about why I need a tart pan. I’m adding this to my list of evidence.
Hopefully this will help convince him how happy he could be if you did have such a pan!
Reblogged this on Roads are made by Traveling and commented:
That looks insane!! I will try it 🙂
This looks amazing!
I would like to make this but I think it takes too much time. Maybe when my kids are older or when I have ’em a bit better trained.
It was quite a few steps, but you can break it up, ie. make the tart dough one day, bake it the next and fill with nutella and chill. Make the ganache on the next day etc. good luck!
Pretty tart ^.^~
I will be cooking this! Will have to work with Gluten Free flour for my son though.
Wow, I don’t normally look at the recipe blogs but that looks amazing!
I’m glad you stopped by! Thanks for your kind words!
Yum! This tart looks absolutely delicious! What a stunner!
this looks sensational! happy world nutella day!!!
wow its looking very delicious 🙂

Nutella is heaven!!!! I want that cake, toooo!!!!
All I can say is that I want to lick the screen. That looks soooooo delish!
Right, I’m off to get a spoon for my jar of Nutella right now!
Thank you! Enjoy your Nutella!
I love Nutella, I love chocolate, I love bananas! What a wonderful combination!! It looks like a long baking process but I’m so willing to give it a shot. I bet it’s worth it ❤
Thank you for sharing this.
Happy World Nutella Day 🙂
It is quite a few steps, but the good thing is that you can break it up a bit and do different parts on different days. You just want to make sure to wait to cut up the topping bananas right before you serve the tart. Good luck!
I love that you celebrated with cake, rather than toast.
Your tart looks super delicious! Beautiful photos too! 🙂
This is mouthwateringgg! 🙂
Yum, have to try, thanks MJ
You’re welcome! Good luck with the tart.
That looks amazing! Bananas and nutella are one of the best combos on earth!
This is amazing! I love Nutella 🙂 I’m going to try making this!
You won’t regret it!
Do you know what makes this tart so much better? Hazelnuts in the ganache…
In this version, you boil the cream and pour it over the chocolate. I wouldn’t say ‘boil’, because it should only be scalded; small bubbles, reaching around 190F, not boiling.
But, if you scald the cream and mix in 1/2 cup crush hazelnuts and allow it to steep for an hour and then strain the hazelnuts before proceeding with the recipe (scalding it again, then adding it to the chocolate), you’ll end up with a really incredible ganache.
Thanks for the tip!
looks delishhhhhhhhh hope to try n make someday soon….

I think I am in love !!
This looks and sounds good! I might just have to make Chocolate cake with Nutella and banana! Yum!
that looks a little *too* good, if you know what I mean.
I had no idea there was a world nutella day. perhaps its better that I didn’t!
To keep the bananas from turning brown so quickly, dust them with powdered sugar.
Good to know!
Looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing!
I just licked the screen.
Wow, that looks De-li-cious!
NOTHING is better than NUTELLA! If it weren’t against the law, I’d bathe in it! I’m going to have to try making these!

Oh myyyyyyyyy! If I weren’t vegan I’d dive right into this pie and never look back. Mmmm, wonder if I could figure out a way to veganize it? Too good to be true!

Looks fantastic – will make! Great work guys, would be wonderful with a creamy Stout alongside.
Any way to make this without a food processor? Looks delish and would hate to miss out for not having the gadgetry.
You could cut the butter into the shortbread dough by hand. I use a food processor because it’s much easier than doing it by hand, but my grandma never had a food processor and she managed to make pie crusts and shortbread with no problems!
Thank you so much! I’m inspired.
Goodness gracious, this looks divine!
This looks fantastic! I hope you do come up with a peanut butter / chocolate / banana concoction – that would be amazing!
Putting Nutella Day into my diary right now…
nutella double chocolate banana tart .
Apparently no one has actually made this yet, following your directions. Under the ingredients for the caramelized bananas, you are missing the amount of sugar. Instead you have 2 amounts for butter.
Goodness! I’m so sorry! Thanks for pointing out the mistake. I have corrected it. Hope it didn’t cause you any trouble!
I just licked my computer screen looking at the nutella masterpiece. YUMMMMMMMM.
Just when I start getting a hold on my weight, something like this comes along….:)
And it looks divine…
I’m gonna have to try this
