Ingredients

  • Banana Bread Bars:

  • 1-½

    c. sugar

  • 1

    c. sour cream

  • ½

    c. butter, softened

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1-¾

    (3 or 4) ripe bananas, mashed

  • 2

    tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2

    c. all purpose flour

  • 1

    tsp. baking soda

  • ¾

    tsp. salt

  • ½

    c. chopped walnuts (optional)

  • Brown Butter Frosting:

  • ½

    c. butter

  • 4

    c. powdered sugar

  • 1-½

    tsp. vanilla extract

  • 3

    tbsp. milk

Directions

1. Heat oven to 375F. Grease and flour 15x10-inch jelly roll pan. For the bars, in a large bowl, beat together sugar, sour cream, butter, and eggs until creamy. Blend in bananas and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and blend for 1 minute. Stir in walnuts. 2. Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. 3. Meanwhile, for frosting, heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Let the butter turn a delicate brown and remove from heat immediately. 4. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Whisk together until smooth (it should be thicker than a glaze but thinner than frosting). Using a spatula, spread the brown butter frosting over the warm bars (the frosting will be easier to spread while the bars are still warm). Yield: 2 dozen large bars
